Android SDK release notes

8.11

Announcement

This marks the final minor release within SDK v8.x. Looking ahead, SDK v9.0 will be our next major release. As previously announced, we will discontinue the practice of releasing source code updates for iOS and Android Mobile SDKs on Github. It's important to note that this is not a deprecation of our SDKs; rather, it pertains to the open-source aspect as we transition our Android and iOS Mobile SDKs to private repositories. There will be no disruptive changes from v8.x to v9.0, although it's worth noting that any future functional enhancements will be exclusively developed within the v9.x series.

RC 1.20

New public APIs

  • AdView.setLoadsInBackground(boolean): Controls the SDK's behavior when an ad is clicked. The default behavior (true) is to load the landing page in the background until the initial payload finishes loading and present a fully rendered page to the user. Setting this to false will cause the in-app browser to immediately become visible to display the un-rendered landing page. Note that setting to false when an ad redirects to the app store may cause the in-app browser to briefly flash on the screen.
  • AdView.destroy(): Whenever a view's activity or fragment is destroyed the developer must call the destroy() method of the view. This must be done in the UI thread.
  • Settings.setLocationDecimalDigits(int digitsAfterDecimal): This method will ensure that any location information is rounded to the specified number of digits after the decimal. The nominal resolution of digits after the decimal to distance is 2 digits to ~1 km , 3 digits to ~100m , 4 digits to ~10m.
  • BannerView.setAdAlignment(enum AdAlignment): Override the alignment of the ad within its container. The default alignment is CENTER. Use this method to align to top left, top center, top right, center left, center, center right, bottom left, bottom center, or bottom right.
  • BannerView.transitionAnimation(): Add an optional animation for banner transitions. By default, the animation feature is disabled. The developer may choose from 4 transitions with optional animation direction and transition time.

  • Amazon 5.3.22

AdRegistration.setAppKey("YOUR_APP_KEY");
