Android Maven Plugin 4.6.0 Released

Is it really nearly two years ago. Time certainly flies. My focus these days certainly has shifted away from Android development, but of course that does not mean I should let down the users of the plugin. So here it is .. a new release of the Android Maven Plugin.

New Features and Bug Fixes

  • Update plexus-utils dependency for windows cmd support fix
  • Don’t generate library if one has already been generated for that package in the compile classpath
  • Added unpackOutputDirectory and includeNonClassFiles to the unpack goal.
  • Added <dex><dexMechanism> element to allow specificaitn of D8 instead of Dex (default).
  • ApkMojo now includes all Java resources from the project to allow inclusion of META-INF resources.
  • Fix path to emulator
  • Correct process location
  • Fix path to lint and others
  • Fix D8 support

We hope that these changes fix the issues for current users in the Android developer community and welcome any further pull requests and fixes.
