Today we have General Availability (GA) releases of Axway Titanium ™ SDK, Axway Appcelerator CLI and Hyperloop issued. (Note: Both the CLI core and the CLI node package have been updated.) Releases contain 9 features, 48 bug fixes, 8 improvements, and 12 APIs with new or extended platform support. For a more detailed overview, known issues and closed tickets, see the release notes:
Remarkable features of the Titanium release
This version provides full support for the iPhone X, including the new launch images, Face ID and handling the safe area introduced by Xcode 9+. In addition, this version supports the use of Xcode 9.1 (released this week).
The RefreshControl feature allows the content to be refreshed in a view by dragging it. We now support the refresh management for Android's ListView, TableView and ScrollView.
iOS 11 has added many new features to MapKit, such as Marker annotations, annotation clustering, and new MKMapTypeMuted Standard Type. Marker Annotation displays a balloon icon on the map that contains details about a specific location. Annotation cluster allows annotations to be grouped if they overlap and include MKClusterAnnotation, MKAnnotationViewCollisionMode, MKMapViewDefaultCluster, AnnotationViewReuseIdentifier, etc. TiMap module now supports these new APIs.
Password AutoFill in iOS 11 Enables login to apps easily by accessing passwords through the keyboard in an app's login screen. Titanium SDK 6.3.0 now fully supports auto-complete passwords on both Android and iOS.
FaceId uses biometric recognition technology to create a 3D image of the face and unlock the phone without using a password or fingerprint. To further improve security functionality, we introduced a new module called Ti.Identity. Ti.Identity includes features like touch id, face id and keychain access.

To update Hyperloop with Axway Appcelerator CLI, make sure you have selected a 6.0.0 or later SDK, and then simply create a new project, "yes" when you enable Hyper Run and download the latest version. To check which SDK you have selected from the CLI, use:
