Setting a timeline for the end of Vuforia 3 support

February 19, 2015 - 4:47pm #1

Hi,

I'm trying to figure out the hard dates involved in the phasing out of Vuforia 3, and hoped the forum could help assemble a list of what the various failure points and dates are so we can all plan our various transitions. I'm personally using the Unity 4.x plugin.

The potential areas that might be sticking points that I thought of were;

  • Turning off of the target manager for Vuforia 3
  • Turning off of the cloud recognition service for Vuforia 3 (if your app uses it)
  • Incompatibility with future iOS releases (so any time after september this year) - this is just a potential one, there may be workarounds
  • Incompatibility with future Android OS releases (this seems pretty unlikely)
  • Incompatibility with Unity 5 (this opens up the scope for a list of reasons you would be forced to upgrade to Unity 5 - like lack of support for future iOS versions in Unity 4 )

Amy I missing any? Does anyone have any opinions on when these may happen?

Hi,

 

 

As stated in this page:

 

https://developer-beta.vuforia.com/library/articles/FAQ/Pricing-and-Billing-FAQ

 

You can use the the Target Manager to create databases that are compatible with Vuforia 3.0 until June 30, 2015. Databases created after this date will only work with a Vuforia 4.0 or newer SDK.

 

For iOS 64-bit support:

Vuforia 4.0 current beta (4.0.11) supports iOS 64bit on native and Unity;  the final (non-beta) release of 4.0 will also support iOS 64bit on native and Unity.

Vuforia 3.0 supports iOS 32-bit  (no 64bit support is planned for the 3.0 version;   in order to enable iOS 64-bit support on existing apps after June 215, you should upgrade your apps to Vuforia 4.0)

 

Unity 5: we plan to offer support for Unity 5 in the future; however, we do not have a confirmed timeline for this , at the moment.
