OK, so lets talk about ActionBar-PullToRefresh
Today I spent a couple of hours going through the bugs and pull-requests and realised that the library's architecture is pretty bad.
The problem comes from the fact that it supports displaying text over the action bar, which makes EVERYTHING more complex, buggy and slow. It also supports backwards compatible action bars which means that it has far too many abstractions/hooks for my liking.
I will release one more release of ActionBar-PullToRefresh today/this weekend which includes lot of the pull requests from various people. This will be version 0.9.9.
Almost a 1.0, but it's not good enough in my opinion.
SwipeRefreshLayout is now released, I strongly recommend using it. It's simpler, smaller and more focused.
