ActionBarSherlock v4.0.0 Release Notes

Release Date: 2013-08-14 // over 8 years ago
  • Complete rewrite of the library to backport the Android 4.0 action bar.

    • The minimum supported version of Android is now 2.1 (API 7).
    • New base activities are provided (e.g., SherlockActivity and SherlockFragmentActivity) which extend from the native activities.
    • The support library sources are no longer included in the library. You must include android-support-v4.jar in your project separately.
    • Theming now mirrors that of the native action bar through the use of multiple styles rather than through ab- and am-prefixed attributes in the theme.
    • The action bar can be statically attached to an activity view without the requirement of using one of the provided base activities.
