Coil v0.10.0 Release Notes

Release Date: 2020-04-20 // over 1 year ago
  • Highlights

    • ๐Ÿ— This version deprecates most of the DSL API in favour of using the builders directly. Here's what the change looks like:

      // 0.9.5 (old)
      val imageLoader = ImageLoader(context) {
      val disposable = imageLoader.load(context, "") {
      val drawable = imageLoader.get("") {
          size(512, 512)
      // 0.10.0 (new)
      val imageLoader = ImageLoader.Builder(context)
      val request = LoadRequest.Builder(context)
      val disposable = imageLoader.execute(request)
      val request = GetRequest.Builder(context)
          .size(512, 512)
      val drawable = imageLoader.execute(request).drawable
      • If you're using the io.coil-kt:coil artifact, you can call Coil.execute(request) to execute the request with the singleton ImageLoader.
    • ImageLoaders now have a weak reference memory cache that tracks weak references to images once they're evicted from the strong reference memory cache.

      • This means an image will always be returned from an ImageLoader's memory cache if there's still a strong reference to it.
      • Generally, this should make the memory cache much more predictable and increase its hit rate.
      • This behaviour can be enabled/disabled with ImageLoaderBuilder.trackWeakReferences.
    • Add a new artifact, io.coil-kt:coil-video, to decode specific frames from a video file. Read more here.

    • โž• Add a new EventListener API for tracking metrics.

    • โž• Add ImageLoaderFactory which can be implemented by your Application to simplify singleton initialization.
