The previous reflection call for getPackageSizeInfo no longer works on Android O.

There are now new APIs:

They require the user to grant manual permission though.

Note: this API requires the permission android.permission.PACKAGE_USAGE_STATS, which is a system-level permission that will not be granted to normal apps. However, declaring the permission expresses your intention to use this API and an end user can then choose to grant this permission through the Settings application.

Next update will start marking entries with 2,0 GB > and in Details 2,0 GB + Unknown if SD Maid isn't sure about the size.

Future update will implement setup pages to ask for the PACKAGE_USAGE_STATS permission and then make use of that.
