In this update, I:

  • Added a new chapter on basic Bluetooth RFCOMM communications.

  • Restored the chapter on Android Things (which had been pulled from
    Version 8.8) and updated it to DP 6.1, the use of the Android
    Things Console.

  • “Mainstreamed” about a third of the material from the Android 8.0 appendix
    into long-term homes in the other chapters. In particular, the chapters
    on notifications wound up with a significant overhaul to accommodate notification

  • Updated the MapsV2 samples to 11.6.2, including getting rid of the
    license notification requirements.

  • Added a section on the Android Test Orchestrator, which did not involve
    timpani, much to my disappointment.

  • Updated the chapter on working with the camera for the latest versions
    of CameraKit-Android (now under new management!) and Fotoapparat.

  • Fixed a variety of errata

  • Bulk-replaced various onCreate() methods on activities, that formerly
    took a Bundle parameter named icicle, to have the Bundle named state

The next update to this book most likely will not come until February, with
updates to other materials before then.
