Is it possible to update to Ionic 1.2 yet?

I saw a few days ago that Ionic 1.2 was announced:

Strangely, when I enter ionic -v in the terminal, I get

I presume that 1.2 is still a newer version?

I am running Ionic on Windows 10. I tried updating Ionic using this command:

bower install driftyco/ionic-bower#v1.2.0 --force

but ionic -v still gives me 1.7.11

How can I update to 1.2? I’m using Windows 10, but have a bash shell that I run most commands through,

1.2 hasn’t “officially” been released yet, that’ll likely be next week (at which point you should be able to update it the way you’ve been trying). Until then you can grab it from here:

When you run ionic -v, you get the version of ionic-cli (Command Line Library) not the framework… To get the version of the framework, run ionic lib

Thank you for your help! I haven’t succeeded in getting it to work yet.

I’ve tried:
bower install
It returns
ECONFLICT Unable to find suitable version for ionic

download it from github release page

What should I do once I have downloaded it? Should I overwrite my www/lib/ionic folder with the contents of the zip file?

you can change bower version in your bower.json to 1.2.0
and then “bower install”


Perfect, that worked!

i use it now for some days. It’s perfect!!!
The best this is now magically some of my cordova bugs are gone. :smile:
Also forced angular version to be 1.4.8. Works also perfect! :smile:

If you use the ionic start [name] blank or so it is also arleady with the 1.2 version. :smile:

The only thing I’m struggling with are the Tabs. As i read that there are some fixes for tabs in android i throwed away all my css fixes and tried it. But the tabs are always hiddden under the navigation bar.

And for some reason the live reload doesnt play that good any more. I always have to refresh manually over chrome inspect.

Cordova CLI: 5.4.1
Ionic Version: 1.2.0-nightly-1823
Ionic CLI Version: 1.6.4
Ionic App Lib Version: 0.3.8
OS: Windows 7 SP1
Node Version: v0.12.6

bower install ionic

seems to work
