Upgrading to OS X Mavericks ?
UPDATE: we found that due to changes in the default software components that are installed by OS X Mavericks, Android builds will fail. An update that fixes this is forthcoming.
Apart from this issue, if you are running Twixl Publisher 3.3.1 or higher, everything should run smoothly.
If you do run into any other issues, don’t hesitate to contact support.
From now on all Twixl Publisher & Twixl Distribution Platform users are able to publish PDFs in a multi-issue app. The Twixl Distribution Platform now supports PDF in addition to Twixl’s own .publication format. Both formats can be combined in the same multi-issue app (currently iPad only).

Although current apps created with Twixl Publisher 3.3 will continue to function after upgrading to iOS7, Twixl Publisher 3.3.1 contains a number of improvements to address some specific issues related to new iOS.
We would recommend an update of your apps using Twixl Publisher version 3.3.1 as soon as you can.
Keep in mind that version 3.3.1 is the last release that will still provide support for iOS 5. As of the next release, Twixl Publisher will only support iOS 6 and 7.
With the recent release of Adobe InDesign CC 9.1, our plugin stopped working. Today, we have made a version available that works with InDesign CC 9.1.
The version that you should use when you are using Adobe InDesign CC 9.1 is version 3.3.1-beta3.
This version is available on our download page.
In order to allow us to easily gather more information if something goes wrong with a kiosk app that uses our Twixl Distribution Platform, we’ve integrated a hidden debug window in our kiosk apps.
You can call this window with a special gesture by tapping 3 times with 3 fingers.
