"Exploring Android" Version 0.3 Released

Subscribers now have access to an update to Exploring Android, known as Version 0.3, 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 a small update, adding two more tutorials, plus fixing some bugs in the previous versions.

Updates to this book are now on hold for a while. Later this year, I will revamp the book to be Android Jetpack-compliant, but that needs to wait until AndroidX ships in final form. That revamp will also make some other improvements to the tutorial implementation.

Also, at minimum, the revamp will involve Kotlin. I have not yet decided whether to replace Java with Kotlin, or whether to offer two separate editions of the book in parallel, one with Java and one with Kotlin. If you have thoughts on this, or if you have any other major structural changes that you would like me to consider, contact me at future@commonsware.com.
