6.4.0 (Nov 06, 2017)

  • CB-12950 lots of tweaks for end-to-end test runs, especially on CI: - rename npm tasks to reflect what they do (npm run unit-tests, npm run e2e-tests). main npm test runs linter, unit tests and e2e tests now. - locked jasmine down to ~2.6.0. - consolidate gitignores. - updated travis to run npm test. add Android sdk installation to appveyor ci run.align Android dpendencies across travis and appveyor. have appveyor install gradle. force gradle to version 3.4.1 in appveyor, as that seems to be the only version choco has. explicitly invoke sdkmanager to move license accepting process along.
  • CB-12605 In Windows get Android studio path from the registry
  • CB-12762 : pointed package.json repo items to github mirrors instead of apache repos site

6.2.3 (May 2, 2017)

  • CB-12640 better handling of unrecognized Android SDK commands on Windows.
  • CB-12640 flipped avd parsing logic so that it always tries to use avdmanager to retrieve avds first, then falls back to android command if avdmanager cannot be found (and errors with ENOENT). updated tests - and added explicit tests to ensure to shell out to singular forms of sub-commands when executing android

Explicitly set the CWD of the spawned emulator process to workaround a recent google android sdk bug. Rename android_sdk_version.js to android_sdk.js, to better reflect its contents. Have create.js copy over the android_sdk_version batch file.
  • CB-12524 Fix for missing gradle template error. This now fetches the template from inside of the Android Studio directory, and falls back to a locally installed Gradle instance
  • CB-12465 Writing new JUnit Test Instrumentation to replace tests and retire problmatic tests

This release adds significant functionality, and also introduces a number of breaking changes. Some of the changes to the code base will be of particular interest to third party webview plugin developers.

Major Changes

  • Primary bridge is the EVAL_BRIDGE, which tells the WebView to execute JS directly. This is more stable than the ONLINE_EVENT bridge
