  1. Feon Sua Xin Miao 2014-07-07 PR: https://github.com/appcelerator/alloy/pull/472 Test app: https://github.com/feons/alloy/tree/ALOY-1068/test/apps/testing/ALOY-1068 Functional Test: 1. Run test app on iOS 2. No runtime error, and <Label text="L(foo)" /> should display as L(foo)
  2. Tim Poulsen 2014-07-17 Per our discussion, we'll implement the following: Any instance of L( will be treated as a trigger to implement the localization functionality. In other words, all three of the following forms should output the i18n string value for the key 'foo'
       		<Label text="L(foo)" />
       		<Label text="L('foo')" />
       		<Label textid="foo" />
  3. Feon Sua Xin Miao 2014-07-18 Updated PR, now all three usage mention above will output the i18n string value for the key 'foo'.
  4. Tim Poulsen 2014-07-18 Works as expected, PR merged.
  5. Ewan Harris 2014-08-25 Verified fix on: Mac OSX 10.9.4 Appcelerator Studio, build: Titanium SDK build: 3.4.0.v20140813022514 Titanium CLI, build: 3.4.0-dev Alloy: 1.5.0-dev iOS Device 5S (8.0b5) iOS Simulator 7.1 Ran the test app on device and simulator, all the labels display 'foo'. Closing ticket.
