Android's Architecture Components Version 0.6 Released

Subscribers now have access to an update to Android’s Architecture Components, known as Version 0.6, 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 two new chapters:

  • An overview of the repository pattern

  • Configuring SQLite beyond what Room directly supports

It also updates the samples to use 1.0.0 of the main Architecture Components, and to use 3.0.1 of the Android Gradle Plugin. Plus, the samples were updated for Java 8 support, including lambda expressions.

And, as usual, it fixes a variety of errata, and makes other small improvements.
