Android's Architecture Components Version 0.5 Released

Subscribers now have access to an update to Android’s Architecture Components, known as Version 0.5, in PDF, EPUB, and MOBI/Kindle formats. Just log into your Warescription page and download away, or set up an account and subscribe!

This is yet another small update, with three new chapters:

  • Blending RxJava and the lifecycle components

  • ViewModel and the data binding framework

  • The benefits of immutability

It also updates the samples to use 1.0.0-rc1 of the main Architecture Components and alpha3 of the Paging library. And, as usual, it fixes a variety of errata, and makes other small improvements.
