Guidelines since MIT AI2 release (nb144)

Release nb144 (June 30, 2015)
Since
MIT introduced the Show Status Bar, Title Visible we are not able to control this through themes if they are unchecked, thereof we have to have them always checked.

  • Show Status Bar – Checked
  • Title Visible – Checked

This applies to all screens, we will control this with themes instead.

Release nb145 (August 17, 2015)
Sizing, I prefer responsive before fixed as it scales the content in your phone / tablet depending on the density.

  • Fixed – 320px * 480px stretched to fit in your phone / tablet
  • Responsive
