Muzei 3.0 Alpha 2
While a new API is nice (and Alpha 2 converts the 'My Photos' source over to the new API so you can use it with Auto Advance), Alpha 2 also includes one of the most requested features: full control over lock screen effects.

With Alpha 2, you'll be able to control what effects (blur, dim, and saturation) you want on the home screen and lock screen completely independently from one another. That means you can have a blurred lock screen and a dim, greyscale home screen if you want - or any other combination!

There's also a button to link the two settings together if you prefer to keep both in sync as was the default in previous versions of Muzei.

Please keep the feedback coming on Muzei 3.0, either here or as an email to support@muzei.co

Navigation 1.0.0-alpha04 is out now!
- app:type has been renamed to app:argType to prevent conflicts with ConstraintLayout 2.0.0-alpha1 and other libraries
- Error messages in Safe Args are now clickable
- Fixed an issue with deep linking and back button

Making Assistant the long term home for proactive information (that you could have manually asked Assistant for if you wanted) makes a lot of sense to me. Glad to see the proactive information make a return from the depths of Google Now.

This took a lot longer than I wanted to get out to everyone, but I am really, really excited about the new Muzei API. There are so many little things that make the user experience for developers better and that benefit end users of Muzei as well.
Muzei 3.0 and the new API
The first alpha of Muzei 3.0 is now available! This marks the first release that supports the new Muzei API - a complete overhaul of the API that makes a number of significant improvements as well as full compatibility with the latest versions of Android.

A full write up of the new API is now available at https://medium.com/@ianhlake/muzei-3-0-and-the-new-api-4fd3d6133db6 and the 3.0.0-alpha01 dependency is available on maven central now.

My favorite feature that the new API is that it allows for centralized control over when new artwork is loaded including how often and whether you need to be on Wi-Fi, called Auto Advance. This should streamline source development quite a bit and let you focus any settings you do provide on settings that are unique to your plugin.

Really looking forward to getting this release fully completed so that 100% of my attention can be spent on the upcoming Muzei 3.0 (!)

Muzei 2.6.1 RC 1
With just a few crash fixes and bug fixes, the release candidate for Muzei 2.6.1 is going straight to the beta channel.

Let me know if you run into any issues.
