How is the stability of the Android Studio Canary and Alpha channel nowadays?

When it was first announced I jumped on the train immediately and I remember having some bad time with backward compatibility issues and bugs :)

When channels come out I moved to stable with my team.

Then we went for beta and we are currently happy with it, the drawback is that we have to wait more for new stuff.

So here again the question: how do you judge the IDE stability in the Alpha and Canary channel? Anything like the beginning?

Please also specify how much you use Android Studio (I use it daily for professional work).

Side question: is it doable to keep two Android Studio different version on the same machine switching between them for the same project? Any issue arise? (different gradle version supported etc...)

+Nicola Dorigatti yeah, that's more or less what I was thinking of doing. But going blind into it vs with someone else experience is a lot different! :)

Instant run shouldn't be an issue for now: I disabled it in the beta too. I think I'll just try it out from time to time to see if it has been fixed :)

I want to share yet another gradle script to publish an Android library on a Maven repository.

This gist:
https://gist.github.com/danielesegato/3ea6f99c968ce0b795c5390844ad4ff7

The main difference with others similar scripts is that I handled the javadoc generation so that it links with Java and Android classes and some third party library I used as dependency.

In the gist I also explain how to set it up to publish artifacts on an Amazon AWS S3, effectively using it as a maven repository.

My team is building an android library that need Google App Invites.
I'm supposed to add google-services.json in the root of the library.
The problem is that google-services.json contains app-specific data. And I really want to place it in the app, not the library!

Any suggestion? How can I use Google App Invites in an android library?

ah.. solved by simply applying the module to the app instead of the library

#Agera and #Rx comparison by a reactive programming expert

long story short: they rewrote the wheel, somehow, and they fall in the same pitfalls most falls when writing a reactive library.

This enforce my previous "sentiment" about the library. Even if it have some interesting android-specific feature, I'll keep monitoring it but will avoid using it in favor of #RxJava for now.

Best article on #AndroidDev #CoordinatorLayout #Behavior I've read so far.

Simple enough to require no previous knowledge and deep / concrete enough to actually be useful. Still not complete but enough to start writing code.

It teach how to write your custom Behavior. How to attach a behavior to a View. How to use it to customize children measurements. How to create dependencies between views. How the nested scrolling work (without going into much details).
What can a #Behavior do? More like what can’t they do.

How can a company ( #Microsoft ) claim a software ( #Skype ) is still supported on a Platform ( #Linux ) after 2 years without any release, no bug fixes, losing backward compatibility?

Recently Skype got an update on any platform (Windows, Mac, iPhone, Android, Windows Phone) about video calls, that update broke it for Linux:
http://community.skype.com/t5/Linux/Skype-Linux-group-call-doesn-t-work/td-p/4325089

This is the update I'm talking about:
http://blogs.skype.com/2016/02/18/announcing-group-video-calling-for-mobile-phones-and-tablets/

Skype Linux user aren't able to enter Group Audio Calls anymore. When someone start a group call the Linux client simply write this in the chat windows:
<User name> started a call.

No option to entering the call is given. If the user is in Do Not Disturb mode he do not even get a notification.

We were never able to do Group Video Calls but we could at least enter in audio.
Apparently the only working fix is make a Linux user start the Group Audio Call. This way anyone will be able to join, video will not work for everyone.

The last version of Skype available for Linux is 4.3, released in late June 2014:
http://blogs.skype.com/2014/06/18/skype-4-3-for-linux/

The software got an amazing evolution since then: both in features and UI/UX. None of that hit Linux even if the company repeatedly affirmed Linux is still supported:
http://community.skype.com/t5/Linux/Skype-5-0-for-linux/m-p/4292632/highlight/true#M13578
http://community.skype.com/t5/Linux/Skype-for-linux-latest-version-a-k-a-How-Skype-ruins-my-life/m-p/4235810/highlight/true#M13250
http://community.skype.com/t5/Linux/Port-Android-version-to-Linux/m-p/3991185/highlight/true#M12248

They even suggest trying running Skype with WINE which is completely unreliable:
https://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.php?sClass=application&iId=1592

The Skype Linux client send you to the web to see pictures or emoticons posted by other users.

It can crash freezing in place. You have no way to tell other then trying to use it (open and click somewhere / try to write). So you may think you are online but you actually aren't.

You may stop seeing users online even if they are away and the solution to this is asking that user to run a console command and restart Skype (the console command force Skype to use the old, no more supported, version of the communication protocol still being used by Linux Skype)

It's really coward to keep stating they support Linux while the don't. The only reason they do this is to avoid going into press and forcing cross platform friendly companies to look on competitors.
Some days ago, Skype is updated and the group calls doesn't work, now? The Linux support is definitively dead? Qualche giorno fa Skyp si è aggiornato e su Linux non finzionano piu le chiamate di gruppo, che si fa? Devo cambiare software o ci sono speranze che venga aggiornato?

Random though: Microsoft voice assistance was Cortana, even if I never liked Windows Phone THAT was amazing. Wouldn't it be awesome if OK Google Assistant had a cool personality too?

My personal choice would be GLaDOS from Portal! Or at least its voice.

What would you guys and gals want?

Have a Nice weekend!

Nexus ❤ was a triumph!
I'm making a note here:
Huge success!

It's hard to overstate
my satisfaction.

Seems like Google developed a new reactive framework for their Google Play Movies app and are now releasing it as open source.

I just started learning RxJava so I gave it a quick look.
My first impression: far less powerful then RxJava as a reactive library, obviously more aimed at Android, completely different syntax and usage.

I've no doubt it has some great stuff in it but I'm kinda disappointed that they had to reinvent the wheel one more time, they could have build a framework on top of RxJava instead of going from scratch for once.

I've no time now to go deeper so I'll wait for someone else to do it and write a review...
I'll keep monitoring #Agera
 
We just released Agera, a library for creating reactive Android apps. https://github.com/google/agera/

Wrapping my head around RxJava has been one of the hardest task I had, as a programmer, since I started this job, and I'm not quite there yet :P

This 40 minutes video should give you a pretty good boost if you already started looking into it.

OnePlus Two  - 
 
To owner of One Plus 2 with Vanilla up-to-date ROM.

Do you also suffer of these issues?

My experience with the One Plus Two has not been great so far. These issues plague me now and then. Not enough to consider the device broken but just that much to be annoying.

Touch Freeze

The device keeps working, you can see animations still going on, notifications coming and so on but it does NOT react to the touch at all.
After a couple of minutes (say 1-3 minutes) the touch comes back to life


Force restart Freeze
very similar to the Touch Freeze (still not sure they are different issues) but it's actually completely frozen and you are forced to long-press the power button to restart.

No sound till reboot
Device stop emitting any sound from the speakers, music, videos, notifications, alarms, nothing.
Reboot makes the sound come back again.

Oltre le aspettative Luisa, la proprietaria de La casa del Palombaro è stata straordinaria: appena arrivati ci ha offerto un'ottima colazione e tutte le informazioni di cui avevamo bisogno per visitare la zona e in generale lei e la sua famiglia sono state disponibili e gentilissime per tutta la nostra permanenza. Struttura molto bella, pulita e attrezzata! Camera davvero confortevole, la nostra nella struttura principale, sopra la sala da colazione. Colazione abbondante con brioche calde di diversi tipi, torte fatte in casa e appena sfornate, frutta fresca, yogurt, pane tostato e in generale tutte le richieste che abbiamo fatto sono state soddisfatte. La struttura è immersa tra vigneti e uliveti nelle campagne subito fuori da Ortona, circa 10 minuti in macchina dalla città. Macchina che quindi va usata per raggiungere le località di mare. Se tornassimo in questa zona alloggeremo certamente qui. Siamo stati qui ad Agosto 2016

Sono stato ieri sera in questo Ristorante, con amici. Me ne avevano parlato bene e volevo provarlo. Abbiamo mangiato messicano! Davvero ottimo! È il più buon messicano di tutta il Biellese, e credo di averli provati tutti. Digeribilità decisamente migliore di qualsiasi Tex-Mex abbia provato. Hanno un menù degustazione a 20 euro, bevande escluse, che permette di assaggiare un po' tutto il menù messicano. Scelta di salse ottima. Piccante il giusto.Anche i dolci molto buoni e fatti in da loro. Piatti abbondanti e ottime birre. Personale simpatico e gentile. Spiegavano volentieri com'erano preparati i piatti o consigliavano chi non era pratico della cucina messicana. Il locale è piccolo ma molto carino e accogliente. Con un dehor estivo. La mia nuova scelta per il messicano! Consiglio.

Sono stato a Pranzo una Domenica. Una mia amica è Brasiliana e ci ha confermato che questo posto è un pezzo di Brasile sul Lago Maggiore. Personale gentilissimo, caipirinha e birra ottime, carni alla spada a volontà e deliziose. Specialmente la picanha! Noi ci siamo andati con groupon ma i prezzi sono decisamente ottimi per qualità del cibo e del servizio! Il locale è situato in una viuzza nel centro area pedonale di Verbania Intra, a due passi dal lago e internamente è tutto nuovo e decorato con gusto. Ci torneremo sicuramente!

[ITA/ENG] Azienda agricola con ottimi vini! Sono stato ad una degustazione classica (disponibili anche degustazione Monferrina e a tema, vedete sul sito web). Dopo un tour dell'azienda, che non ha incluso una visita ai vigneti solo causa maltempo, abbiamo degustato 6 vini diversi! Uno più buono dell'altro! Abbiamo poi acquistato diverse bottiglie e Bag-in-Box. Ci torneremo sicuramente! I bag sono davvero ben fatti, ermetici non fanno entrare l'aria e il vino si mantiene, non versano una goccia e la qualità è come da bottiglia! Farming Business specialized in Italian Monferrato Wine. I've been here for a wine tasting tour of the farm which didn't include a walk in the vineyards only because of the bad weather. We've tasted 6 different Wine bottles, each one better than the others, both white and black, and bought a couple of bottles and Bag-in-Box to brought home. The bags are great! They are hermetically sealed against air so the wine taste doesn't degrade and they don't spill anything! The wine quality is the same you have in the bottles: awesome! I'll be getting there again for sure in the future.
