    ๐Ÿ› Bug Fixes

    • โž• Added missing toString() for the implementation of OrderedCollectionChangeSet.
    • ๐ŸŽ Sync queries are evaluated immediately to solve the performance issue when the query results are huge, RealmResults.size() takes too long time (#5387).

    • ๐Ÿ›  Fixed the listener on RealmList not being called when removing the listener then adding it again (#5507). Please notice that a similar issue still exists for RealmResults.
