This SDK wrapps HockeySDK-iOS 5.1.0 and HockeySDK-Android 5.0.4. This release contains various bugfixes and improvements for both platforms.

Changelog for HockeySDK-Android


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


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

Changelog for HockeySDK-iOS


  • [FEATURE] Add Turkish localization thanks to Ozgur.#478
  • [FEATURE] Add support to detect low memory and OS kill heuristics for extensions. Thx to Dave Weston for this! #470
  • [IMPROVEMENT] Support tracking events in the background. #475
  • [FIX] Improvements around thread-safety and concurrency for Metrics. #471 #479
  • [FIX] Fix runtime warnings of Xcode 9's main thread checker tool. #484
  • [FIX] Fix caching of previews for attachments to Feedback. #487

This version wrapps the latest native SDKs and makes sure the SDK is fully compatible with Android O and iOS 11. There have been no changes that are specifically about the Xamarin SDK as it is a simple wrapper around the native SDKs.

The most notable changes are:

  • The SDK is now supporting iOS 8 and later.
  • The SDK is now supporting Android API level 15 or later.
  • It's no longer possible to authenticate a user using a device identifier on Android.

Please read the full changelog below.

Changelog for HockeySDK-Android


  • [Bugfix] Fixes a NPE in FeedbackActivity. #303
  • [Bugfix] Fixes a potential deadlock in CrashManager.[#https://github.com/bitstadium/HockeySDK-Android/pull/308]
  • [Improvement] Fix potential NPE when calling MetricsManager.sessionTrackingEnabled() before calling MetricsManager.register(...). #310


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


Breaking Changes

This release comes with one major breaking change. 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"/>

Thx a lot to Lauri for notifying us.

Full changelog

In addition, this release contains the following changes:

  • [IMPROVEMENT] Support for Android O.
  • [IMPROVEMENT] Code scans no longer trigger warnings related to usage of ANDROID_ID as we are no longer using it.

  • [IMPROVEMENT] We've improved the way we send Feedback attachments.
  • [IMPROVEMENT] The SDK no longer caches information about in-app updates to make sure updates are available immediately. The iOS SDK has behaved like this for a while and we decided to align the behavior across SDKs.
  • [IMPROVEMENT] Add the ability to when to show the UpdateFragment #280.
  • [IMPROVEMENT] Retrieving the last crash details is now asynchronous.
  • [BUGFIX] Metrics no longer leaks a connection.
  • [BUGFIX] It's no longer possible to circumvent the login UI by pressing the backbutton under certain circumstances #278.
  • [BUGFIX] Fix a crash in MetricsManager #279.
  • [BUGFIX] Fix authentication by email #288.
  • [BUGFIX] Fix a regression that was introduced in 5.0.0-beta.1 that prevented attaching screenshots to work #289.

  • [IMPROVEMENT] Add the ability to when to show the UpdateFragment #280.
  • [IMPROVEMENT] CrashManagerListener now has onNoCrashesFound() to notify you in case no new crashes were found #280.
  • [DEPRECATION] We've removed the onCrashesFound callback in CrashManagerListener as it has been deprecated since HockeySDK 3.0.0.

This stable release adds the following:

  • Custom Events support for both iOS and Android
  • iOS 10 support
  • Android 7.0 support

If you want to support iOS 10 or Android 7.0 we highly recommend updating to this release.

Please note the changes announced on our blog regarding iOS 10. Especially take note of the requirement to add the NSPhotoLibraryUsageDescription key to your Info.plist as the Xamarin SDK includes all features of the iOS SDK (does not apply to the Crash-Only version).
