Ionic 1.2.4 problems with on-touch behaviour

After updating from ionic 1.1.1 to ionic 1.2.4 I found some different behaviors but the one that upsets me most is the on-touch gesture.

The problem is with the structure:

<div class="bt_l">
    <img ng-src="{{ imagebl }}" on-touch="butTouch()" on-release="butRelease()"/>

with version 1.1.1 when I touch with the finger in the image butTouch() was fired, then I was able to move the finger over the button with out triggering the release event until I take off the finger from the screen.

but now with version 1.2.4 when I move the finger on-release event is triggered.

this is a problem because this is a trackpad with 4 buttons, that control some motors.

any clue on how to solve this?


I’m using android 4.4.2 api19 : 4my bower.json is:

  "name": "HelloIonic",
  "private": "true",
  "devDependencies": {
    "ionic": "driftyco/ionic-bower#1.2.4"
  "dependencies": {
