1.0.0-beta9

@kaaes kaaes released this · 5 commits to master since this release

Spotify Android SDK 1.0.0-beta9

What's new

  • Spotify Android SDK is now shipped as two separate libraries -
    one that handles authentication: spotify-auth-1.0.0-beta9.aar and one
    containing the player: spotify-player-1.0.0-beta9.aar.
    Applications that do not use playback can now include just the authentication module.
    To use the new libraries a change in build files is required:

    // Before 1.0.0-beta9
    compile 'com.spotify.sdk:spotifysdk:1.0.0-beta9@aar'
    
    // From 1.0.0-beta9
    compile 'com.spotify.sdk:spotify-player:1.0.0-beta9@aar'
    compile 'com.spotify.sdk:spotify-auth:1.0.0-beta9@aar'

    The name of the package containing playback related classes was changed from com.spotify.sdk.android.playback to com.spotify.sdk.android.player.
    More details can be found on the Spotify Android SDK page.

  • We finally have x86 support! (Issue #35)
  • AuthenticationClient#createLoginActivityIntent method was added. This method returns an intent that can be used to show the LoginActivity from a Fragment. This intent can be used both with android.app and android.support Fragments. (Issue #73)
  • Additional checks were introduced to ensure that null callbacks can't be added to the Player.

Bug fixes

  • Better error handling when LoginActivity is launched without a calling activity. In such case a descriptive error message will be logged in the logcat. (Issue #80)
  • BadTokenException in LoginDialog fixed (Issue #95)

Known bugs

  • Unavailable track error currently reports wrong uri.

1.0.0-beta7

@kaaes kaaes released this · 7 commits to master since this release

Spotify Android SDK 1.0.0-beta7

What's New

  • SDK includes native libraries for ARMv7 devices
  • New way to get access to audio data. Instead of subclassing the Player it is now possible to create a custom AudioController and pass it to the player during creation. For details refer to AudioController class
  • Subclassing the Player is no longer possible. This is because there's no need for it with custom AudioControllers.
  • Initialized Player instance is passed to the Player.InitializationObserver#onInitalized callback.
  • It is possible to set playback bitrate. Default bitrate is set to 160kbit/s. For more details see Player#setPlaybackBitrate method and PlaybackBitrate object.
  • Player has two new methods: login and logout which can be used to log back in after losing connectivity or to switch users.
  • It is now possible to specify which handler player should post its callback on (default is main thread)
  • One of the ConnectionStateCallback methods has been removed.
  • To use all brand new options Player has a brand new Builder.

Bug fixes

  • Only playback events are delivered to PlayerNotificationCallback#OnPlaybackEvent
  • Lots of internal Player fixes mostly related to concurrency.

1.0.0-beta6

@kaaes kaaes released this · 9 commits to master since this release

Spotify Android SDK 1.0.0-beta6

What's New:

  • Starting a song from specified position is now possible. Check out the new PlayConfig class and Player#play(PlayConfig) method to see how to use it.
  • We added some more error handling. This means you can get new types of errors in PlayerNotificationCallback#onPlaybackError if something goes wrong.
  • Disk cache is now turned on by default. It can be turned off by invoking Config#useCache with false.
  • Initialization of the player changed slightly. Now you'll need to pass a Config object
    with valid client ID when getting the player:

    // Old way:
    Spotify spotify = new Spotify("myauthtoken");
    Player player = spotify.getPlayer(context, "mycompany", referenceObj, initObserver);
    
    // New way
    Spotify spotify = new Spotify();
    Config playerConfig = new Config(context, "myauthtoken", "myclientid");
    Player player = spotify.getPlayer(playerConfig, referenceObj, initObserver);
  • It is possible to inject a custom player to the Spotify class with Spotify#setPlayer method.

Bug fixes

  • We tweaked playback logic a bit. Now the player should much more responsive when skipping songs or changing contexts.
  • SDK is now tested with Lollipop (Android 5.0)

Known issues

  • If you try playing a playlist from an index beyond the playlist size, there's no related playback error triggered.
  • The same issue occurs when trying to play a song with the initial position that is beyond its duration.

1.0.0-beta5

@kaaes kaaes released this · 10 commits to master since this release

Spotify Android SDK 1.0.0 Beta 5

What's New:

  • We introduced two new playback events: TRACK_START and TRACK_END that will replace the TRACK_CHANGED event. The uri of the track that started or finished playing can be read from player state sent with those events. (Issue #8)
  • SDK now handles playback errors with new PlayerNotificationCallback#onPlaybackError method. It can be used to handle the unavailable tracks errors. (Issue #37)
  • As an experimental feature you can now use disk cache in your app. It will store streamed
    tracks locally on the device and read them from disk when played next time.
    To enable cache initialize Spotify this way:

    Spotify spotify = new Spotify("myauthtoken");
    spotify.useCache(true);
    

Bugs fixed:

  • InitializationObserver#onError callback is now delivered correctly on the UI thread.

1.0.0-beta4

@kaaes kaaes released this · 11 commits to master since this release

Spotify Android SDK 1.0.0 Beta 4

What's New:

  • You will now get player state with every player event.
  • The player state now contains information about currently playing track and its duration. (Issue #22)
  • Instead of keeping a copy of player state from native player inside Player object getPlayerState() is now asynchronous and requires a callback.
  • We removed these methods from the Player object:

    • isPlaying()
    • getPlaybackPosition()
    • isShuffling()
    • isRepeating()

    This data can now be retrieved asynchronously with getPlayerState() or from
    the player state passed with player events.

  • New callback for errors while logging in.
  • Player initialization callback is now triggered after user successfully logs in.

Bugs fixed:

  • SDK does not mix playback with Spotify App. (Issue #28)
