Releasing NetworkEvents 2.0.0

Releasing NetworkEvents 2.0.0

Jul 31, 2015
android, open-source

I’ve recently released NetworkEvents library v. 2.0.0. It’s an Android library listening network connection state and change of the Wifi signal strength. It has a few significant changes in the API and new features, which people were requesting on GitHub. Moreover, codebase was slightly refactored and updated. I’m going to keep major.minor.patch convention AKA semantic versioning now:

  • major - new feature or update - backward incompatible
  • minor - new feature - backward compatible
  • patch - bug-fix - backward compatible

A few changes are backward incompatible, so I’ve increased major number. Below, you can find list of changes. As you can see, there is a lot of stuff. That’s why I’ve made the most important changes bold.

  • removed withPingUrl(url) method
  • removed withPingTimeout() method
  • removed withoutPing() method
  • removed withoutWifiAccessPointsScan() method
  • removed Otto dependency (now, it’s available only for unit tests)
  • removed example-disabling-ping-and-wifi-scan app sample
  • removed example-ping-customization app sample
  • removed NetworkHelper class and moved its method to specific classes with changed scope
  • moved permissions to Manifest of library
  • disabled WiFi scan by default
  • disabled Internet connection check by default
  • added BusWrapper, which is abstraction for Event Bus required by NetworkEvents object
  • added example-greenrobot-bus app sample
  • added enableWifiScan() method
  • added enableInternetCheck() method
  • added getWifiScanResults() method in WifiSignalStrengthChanged event
  • added getMobileNetworkType() method in ConnectivityChanged event
  • added JavaDoc at: http://pwittchen.github.io/NetworkEvents/
  • updated existing sample applications
  • updated documentation in README.md and library code

Feel free to download, use or fork this library!
