This week +Kaushik Gopal and I talk to +Jesse Wilson about OkHttp, okio, Retrofit and all kinds of interesting historical tidbits about these libraries and how they came to be. Don't miss this one, it was super fun to record and we can't wait for you to hear it. https://simplecast.com/s/2e201f87

Java Interoperability Policy for Major Version Updates

Major version updates to libraries solve the API warts of old and bring shiny new APIs to address previous shortcomings—often in a breaking fashion. Updating an Android or Java app is usually a day or two affair before you reap the benefits. Problems arise, however, when other libraries you depend on have transitive dependencies on older versions of the updated library.

+Jesse Wilson offers candid insights from user perspective as well: https://publicobject.com/2015/12/12/com-squareup-okhttp3/

Ultimately, we fight for the user!

New episode of The Blerg is out. +Jesse Wilson kicks me out of the hosting chair and runs the show, posing me all sorts of questions about this week's Action Launcher 3.5 update. 

We of course dig into the nitty-gritty of this update, where I discuss my motivations for developing Action Launcher 3's new Quickbar feature, how much of a struggle this update was for me to develop and why, how the launch has been received and more.

Jesse also asks me what motivated me to start writing Action Launcher in the first place, we discuss details on features from Action Launcher 2 that haven't made it to Action Launcher 3, and I offer my perspective on Google Now as a launcher feature, and discuss whether I feel such support will ever come to Action Launcher.

please comment on the original.
The video from my talk "A Few 'Ok' Libraries" from +droidcon Montreal is now available for viewing. This covers the behavior of Okio and how the OkHttp, Moshi, and Retrofit libraries interact with it to move and parse data efficiently.

If your Android app does HTTPS and don’t want old and busted crypto, OkHttp makes it easy. We followed Mozilla’s lead and dropped RC4 in 2.3.

Even better, fix your HTTPS servers to drop RC4 cipher suites. That'll benefit all your users, and you don’t even have to wait for app store approval.

Droidcon Montréal schedule is out.

There's plenty of interesting topics including Realm, Kotlin, and Rx. Jake Wharton and I are giving the opening keynote on open source, and our teammate Matt Precious is presenting on how debug builds give him Jedi powers.

It's going to be nice to have many strong Android developers in one place! Full schedule at http://www.droidcon.ca/schedule

Nexus Users Denied Sprinkles on their Donut Emoji

Further fragmenting Android, Google has refused to provide sprinkles for the donut emoji on their Nexus devices.

+Stuart Gill:
“Donuts are not required to have sprinkles. In fact, the prototypical emoji donut specified by Unicode is a plain chocolate glazed.”

Fortunately HTC, Samsung and LG users are not impacted. If you needed another reason to not buy a Nexus 6, this is it.
