We are releasing an early preview of Android Gradle plugin 2.5, which aims to address performance issues of large Android projects. In order to bring about these improvements, we need to introduce some breaking changes in the plugin behavior, DSL, and APIs. These breaking changes impact both build files and Gradle plugins. We may also need to introduce more breaking changes before this version reaches the stable channel. We are releasing the new plugin early so developers and plugin authors can start trying it with their projects and plugins to provide us with feedback.

Introducing ShapeShifter v0.1

For the past couple of months I've been working on a web app that simplifies the process of creating SVG-based path morphing animations.

Try it out and let me know if you have any trouble. If you don't have your own SVGs to use, click on that three-dotted icon in the top right corner and play around with one of the demos. :)

I'm especially interested in how I can make this tool more useful for UXers (who are usually the ones creating SVGs in the first place)... so please send me feedback! I'm also interested in supporting other export formats other than AnimatedVectorDrawable... send me feature requests!
