"Exploring Android" Version 1.9 Released

Subscribers now have access to an update to Exploring Android, known as Version 1.9, in PDF, EPUB, and MOBI/Kindle formats, in addition to the online reader. Just log into your Warescription page and download away, or set up an account and subscribe!


This update adds a new tutorial, for scheduling work with WorkManager.

It also makes some minor adjustments to support Android Studio 4.1, and fixes a smattering of bugs.

The next update — Version 2.0 — should be out in roughly a month, just with bug fixes. The next substantial update will not be until Android Studio 4.2 ships in final form, and I am not expecting that to happen until 2021.

(assuming that 2020 ever ends)
