Changelog History

  • v5.2.0 Changes

    May 21, 2019

    🛠 This is a maintenance release for the SDK. It contains important bugfixes.

    • 🛠 [Bugfix] #411 – Leaking HTTP connection. PR #412
    • 🛠 [Bugfix] – Fix HTTPS connection creation. PR #424
    • 🔒 [Security] To enforce TLS 1.2 on all HTTPS connections the SDK makes, we are dropping support for API level 15 (which supports only TLS 1.0), the minimum SDK version thus becomes 16. Previous versions of the SDK were already using TLS 1.2 on API level 16+.

    💥 Breaking changes in version 5.2.0

    HockeySDK 5.2.0 raises the minimum API level to 16.

  • v5.1.1 Changes

    August 27, 2018

    🛠 This is a maintenance release for the SDK. It contains important bugfixes, including some that make the SDK compatible with Android Pie.

    • 🛠 [Bugfix] #395 – NullPointerException in DownloadFileTask. PR #396
    • 🛠 [Bugfix] #391 - FileNotFoundException when attaching an image to feedback. PR #393
    • 🛠 [Bugfix] #377 - Prevent OutOfMemoryError in case of reading/sending crash reports with very long stacktraces. #PR 378 PR #392
    • 🛠 [Bugfix] #385 - Fix "untagged socket" violation in strict mode of Android O PR #387
    • 🛠 [Bugfix] Fix the error message that gets logged by the SDK to logcat in case a saved stacktrace is empty. PR #375
    • 🛠 [Bugfix] #369 - Adjust timeout interval for a http connection. PR #370
    • 🛠 [Bugfix] Fix a glitch in the feedback UI. PR #353
    • 🛠 [Bugfix] Fix multiple causes for deadlocks. PR #348
  • v5.1.0 Changes

    January 11, 2018
    • 🛠 [Bugfix] Fix issue in persistence logic that could cause Session information to be inaccurate. #340
    • [Improvement] Remove left-to-right attribute in case the app that integrates the SDK doesn't use that. Thx to Steven for this contribution. #335
    • [Improvement] Improve error message for the Feedback feature. #341
    • [Improvement] It's now possible to call setUserId for Feedback. #339

    💥 Breaking changes in version 5.0.0

    HockeySDK 5.0.0 raises the minimum API level to 15.
    🏗 In addition, we no longer support restricting builds by device id. The reason is that, with Android O, ANDROID_ID no longer ensures a consistent way of identification of a user.

    To be ready for Android O, HockeySDK-Android now limits the WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE permission with the maxSdkVersion filter. In some use cases, e.g. where an app contains a dependency that requires this permission, maxSdkVersion makes it impossible for those dependencies to grant or request the permission. The solution for those cases is to declare the tools:node="replace" manifest merging strategy later in the dependency tree:

    <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE" tools:node="replace"/>

  • v5.0.4 Changes

    November 21, 2017

    🛠 This version contains a few bugfixes as well as the removal of an API that has been deprecated since HockeySDK 3.7.0-Beta.2.

    • 🗄 Removal of deprecated API ExceptionHandler.saveException(Throwable exception, CrashManagerListener listener) has been deprecated since 3.7.0-beta.2. Use ExceptionHandler.saveException(Throwable exception, Thread thread, CrashManagerListener listener) instead. #317
    • 🛠 Bugfix The SDK now deletes redundant crash reports. #318
    • 🛠 Bugfix The SDK does no longer send the event that indicates the start of a session twice but once. There was no impact on session counts as the event was de-duplicated on the server. #321
    • 🛠 Bugfix Fixes a potential deadlock when reading device information when saving an exception. #323
    • 🛠 Bugfix Fixes a potential NPE when processing stacktraces. Thanks to Thomas Reis for reporting issue #331. #332

  • v5.0.3 Changes

    October 03, 2017

    🚀 This release now limits the number of crashes that are stored by the SDK while the device is offline to 100 Crashes. HockeySDK-Android will stop to collect crashes until the number of unsent crashes drops below the limit of 100 unsent crashes.

    • 🛠 [BUGFIX] Fixes a possible OutOfMemoryError exception. This only occurs when a very large number of crashes – several 100k or more – wasn't sent to the server. #313

  • v5.0.2 Changes

    September 26, 2017
    • 🛠 [Bugfix] Fixes a NPE in FeedbackActivity. #303
    • 🛠 [Bugfix] Fixes a potential deadlock in CrashManager.#308
    • [Improvement] Fix potential NPE when calling MetricsManager.sessionTrackingEnabled() before calling MetricsManager.register(...). #310

    Thx to Mourat and Jarred for their contributions!

    • 🛠 [BUGFIX] Fix a bug in the Italian translation. #296
    • [IMPROVEMENT] Use different timestamp format for crash date and app start time. #297
