I'd suggest preparing for a future update and doing that now. I don't think there will be any further updates to 3.x.
Thanks for your reply. I have built both versions and it doesn't make a difference. There are datepicker classes in Rhodes 4 for ios that I can see and I have tried tweaking a couple of the UI variables but there doesn't seem an easy way to make the date section a solid color. It seems rather limiting that one cannot simply specify this and has to instead implement a whole other datepicker to change a background color...
I stand corrected on both counts!
because the Data Picker was removed in 4.0.
I was basing this on one of our own internal Issues for our project. We'd concluded one of our tasks for updating to 4.0 was to find a suitable HTML5 date picker. Maybe plans changed, or it was reintroduced post-4.0 beta. (Beta being the last time we visited 4.0.) I'll need to investigate and update our Issue.
I think, though, this is just a wrapper around the native iOS date picker. And this is the way Apple thinks it ought to look. I think it's unusable, myself. It drives me crazy, and I've seen it in many apps other than our own.
We still aren't ready for 4.0, but (see next point) we're about to start building for iOS 7.0, and I suspect we will face the same issue. So, I suspect I'll be looking into this, and will post a solution if I find one.

I hadn't looked at the repo recently. It turns out that the changes to build with XCode5 for iOS7 were back-ported to 3.5 in late November, and there were some updates in January for Android. So 3.5 isn't quite dead yet!
If you want to use the latest, you need to check-out the repo and build the Gem yourself.
The date picker is still present, despite statements in the docs to the contrary.
When I build with Rhodes 4.1 and Xcode 5.1, the background is not transparent. I think the transparency issue only occurs with 3.5.14.
