Continuous Stability Improvements
This update is strongly focused on stability improvements across various Crosslight components. It also includes dozens of enhancements, thanks to the support and feedback from our customers and Crosslight community. For the complete list, please see the Enhancements section below.
New Android Grid Fragment
In addition to dozens of enhancements, this release brings two new major features for Android. With full MVVM and data binding support built to the new Grid Fragment, you can now easily display a collection of items in a nicely arranged Grid layout. In fact, you can swap the existing List layout with the new Grid layout by just changing the fragment class – absolutely no changes on your existing UI logic or data access layer.
New Android Location Service
This release shipped with a powerful location service based on Fused Location Provider available in latest Google Play Services. The new location service offers more accurate and faster location coordinate capturing through the available network, including the automatic use of GPS, cellular and Wi-Fi network.
Implemented in a new assembly Intersoft.Crosslight.Services.Location.Android, you can easily take advantage of this new location service by simply adding a reference to this new assembly. Your existing code which call MobileService.Location.GetCurrentLocation will be automatically routed to the new implementation without writing a single line-of-code, thanks to the Crosslight's rock-solid, plug-and-play architecture.
