A blog post on some of the more low-level details about the v22.1.0 support library release.

It’s been a while since my last post so here we are. You may have seen that the 22.1.0 support libraries were released yesterday, which is probably the biggest non-platform release we’ve done with the support library.

+Mario Viviani Yes you're right about the the way i think there's no other practical solution to do something like this and change cards without touching the screen :-D I will try making an application with this kind of "gesture" and i will try the efficiency in my N5 Ahahaha, of course it's not the same thing..but, why not? :-D

Here you can find the fun slides deck me and +Sebastiano Poggi presented during our keynote talk at +Droidcon Italy!

It has been super fun!
I've just uploaded the slides of Something Something Android, the keynote session I gave with +Mario Viviani at Droidcon Italy last week.
Video recordings should be made available soon by the organisers.

Thanks again +Francesco Ronchi and +Francesco Brocero for letting us do this session :)

How to add Toolbar to an Activity which doesn’t extend AppCompatActivity

With the release of Android Support Library 22.1 you can now add AppCompat/Material Design features to your Activities which do not extend AppCompatActivity.

In this article, I analyze how easy is to add a Toolbar to a non-AppCompat Activity using the new AppCompatDelegate.

AppCompatDelegate allows to add Material Design features to old, non-AppCompat Activities

+Mario Viviani agreed - I feel like a LOT of documentation is "missing" from AppCompat in general. Look at how many blogs there are talking about how to implement a Material Design look using AppCompat - and I've found that almost none of them are 100% accurate. I've had to cobble together bits and pieces from multiple blogs to get 1 working app.

I'm hopeful that the new version will make some of the issues I've run into a little less troublesome, but lacking a good example from Google is a major hassle for me.

This is a HUGE update to Support Library!! A lot of cool features, can't wait to try them!
Android Support Library 22.1 - ActionBarActivity is dead, long live AppCompatActivity
You’d be surprised how much we can pack into a 0.1 update to the Android Support Library: revision 22.1 includes improvements to Support V4, AppCompat, Leanback, RecyclerView, Palette, and Renderscript.

Support V4 adds drawable tinting to all API4+ devices, the new ColorUtils class makes working with colors easier, and new interpolators have been added to make great animations.

AppCompat gets a remake as we deprecate ActionBarActivity for the new AppCompatActivity, now built on a AppCompatDelegate that can be used to add AppCompat functionality to any Activity. There’s also a new AppCompatDialog, support version of AlertDialog, improvements to widget tinting, and expanded android:theme support.

Leanback now includes a guided step functionality, making it easy to build a multiple step process that looks great on Android TV.

RecyclerView seeks to make life easier with a new SortedList data structure, making it easy to tie a changing set of data to a RecyclerView.Adapter.

Palette is now 6-8 times faster and has a new Builder pattern for constructing Palette instances.

Renderscript improved reliability and performance and adds additional script intrinsic operations, bringing new pre-defined operations to all API 8+ devices.

Check out everything that has been added in this release and download the updated Android Support Library via the Android SDK Manager.

Buon bistrot in zona Marais. Molto piccolo, ma il personale è gentile e disponibile. Come prezzi è nella media di Parigi, con 20-25 euro si prende un piatto principale, un calice di vino, acqua e dolce. Buona la tartare di carne. Da provare assolutamente la Tarte Tatin, specialità del locale, che da sola vale lo stop.

Great Hotel! Position is perfect for anyone who's wanting to stay in the downtown without paying too much. The rooms are really clean, there is free WiFi and the service quality is good! I've spent 10 days at the hotel and will surely come back again if I will be back in San Francisco!

Ottimo ristorante, cibo tipico belga e dal mondo di ottima qualità e a buon prezzo. Il locale è un antico bistrot risistemato, molto carino. Frequentato da belgi e universitari, si parla inglese e anche un po' in italiano. Il servizio è rapido e molto simpatico. Ampia scelta di birre belghe e piatti vegetariani. Ci siamo fermati a Bruxelles per una settimana e ci siamo tornati tre volte! Meglio di qualsiasi ristorante nel centro città! Attenzione: si paga solo in contanti!
