Fresco v2.1.0 Release Notes

Release Date: 2019-11-08 // 30 days ago

Previous changes from v2.0.0

  • 💥 Breaking Dependency Change

    👍 We bumped the major version since Fresco is now using AndroidX support libraries.
    👍 If you are still using the previous support library, please use version 1.14.2 until you've migrated to AndroidX.

    🆕 New Flipper Images Plugin

    📚 We've open sourced our Flipper images plugin, which makes it easy for you to debug images within your application. Take a look at the Flipper documentation here: https://fbflipper.com/docs/features/images-plugin.html
    It also allows you to track unclosed CloseableReferences if you're using the image pipeline directly.

    🛠 Fixes and Improvements

    Highlights:

    • ➕ Added explicit color management (51efaa7). See #2323 for more information.
    • ➕ Added API to get the size of the disk cache.
    • 🛠 Fix scaling up image with RoundingParams.
    • Prevent Fresco from crashing for certain invalid GIFs.
    • ➕ Added local content URI support for fetching encoded images.
    • ➕ Added CloseableReference leak tracking. You can hook up your own listener to track unclosed references.
    • Video thumbnails: generate video thumbnail from content provider when we cannot get file path.
    • ⚡️ Updated the Showcase sample app to enable the Flipper images plugin and started using Kotlin.
    • Display Image URI in Fresco's debug overlay.
    • 👌 Improved image origin listener accuracy.
    • ➕ Added caller context verification to the ImagePipeline. You can now check whether proper image attribution (caller context) is set.
