countly-sdk-android v21.11.0 Release Notes

    • !! Major breaking change !! Deprecating "ADVERTISING_ID" as device ID generation strategy. SDK will fall back to 'OPEN_UDID'. All "ADVERTISING_ID" device ID's will have their type changed to "OPEN_UDID". If the device will have a "null" device ID, a random one will be generated.
    • !! Major breaking change !! Changing device ID without merging will now clear all consent. It has to be given again after this operation.
    • !! Major breaking change !! Entering temporary ID mode will now clear all consent. It has to be given again after this operation.
    • ! Minor breaking change ! Feedback widget callback not has an additional callback. This will cause a compilation error that is trivial to fix by adding the override for the missing call.
