When enterprises require Android compilation tasks and applications in keeping up with competition, IncrediBuild’s latest version 6.0 allows for more developer support for shared projects.
Enterprise organizations have recognized that developers are working under extreme pressures to produce products across multiple platforms, IncrediBuild raises the bar for cross-platform solutions. The release is only a taste of what is planned in 2015 to accelerate multi-and cross-platform development, Eyal Maor, CEO of IncrediBuild, had said.
To address such requirements and provide further support, the solution provider of software development and continuous delivery acceleration technology released its latest version of IncrediBuild 6.0. IncrediBuild 6.0 supports Microsoft’s Visual Studio 2015 Preview. IncrediBuild and Visual Studio 2015’s combination of continuous interoperability is possible across multiplatform development for Windows desktops and Windows and Android tablets and mobile devices, Maor stated.

Xoreax Ltd. today announced its IncrediBuild tool designed to speed up cross-platform development builds in Visual Studio has been updated to support the latest version, the Visual Studio 2015 Preview.
The Tel Aviv-based company uses process virtualization technology in its distributed computing software to take advantage of idle CPU cycles and speed up development builds by concurrently spreading the work across the network. Depending upon project complexity and available computing power, such builds can eat up much of a developer's time and lengthen development cycles.
IncrediBuild 6.0 "allows builds to execute in parallel over the entire network and in the cloud, substantially increasing performance, speeding build time and improving developer productivity," the company said in a statement. "IncrediBuild ensures Android compilations are much faster by offering parallel compilation at the project level. For example, a standard build takes more than three minutes on an eight-core machine with 100 two-second Android compilation tasks. With IncrediBuild, the same task takes 12 seconds."
The new version also adds support for shared projects, letting developers simultaneously share code, controls, styles, strings and other resources between two separate Windows and Windows Phone projects in Visual Studio. "Supporting cross-platform development, IncrediBuild offers additional productivity features such as build visualization, easy error detection, the ability to inspect build output per project, build management and replays," the company said.

Read about a software solution that can make a single, four CPU full core computer act like a 200 CPU computer.
For everyday processing tasks, the dual core processors in laptop and desktop computers are more than sufficient. In fact, most of those machines rarely use all their processing power, which has led some to ask what else could be done with the unused CPU cycles.Early schemes employed downloadable clients that would contribute your unused CPU cycles to various causes such as AIDS research and the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI).Later you could contribute CPU cycles in helping to prove some of Einstein's theories, provide early detection of earthquakes, or find the God particle.As might be expected, CPU cycles on desktops and laptops are not the only ones being harnessed to solve computationally dense problems. Researchers at the Berkeley Open Infrastructure for Network Computing have apps you can run on your mobile phone that will cause it to contribute its unused cycles to research as well.
