Android's Architecture Components Version 0.8 Released

Subscribers now have access to an update to Android’s Architecture Components, known as Version 0.8, in PDF, EPUB, and MOBI/Kindle formats. Just log into your Warescription page and download away, or set up an account and subscribe!

This update expands the coverage of the Paging library:

  • A new chapter on creating a custom DataSource for use with Paging

  • A new chapter extending the original Model-View-Intent (MVI) sample to use Paging

This update also bumps all of the dependencies up to match the January 2018 release of the Architecture Components, plus makes the usual bug fixes.

The next update to this book is tentatively slated for mid-April. However, the Android “offseason” is nearly over, as developer previews of Android P (Pomegranate? Popsicle?) could show up in March. My release plans will need to adapt to what Google does.
