Update 3.5.7 – Google Drive Backup
Google Drive Backup
The main focue of 3.5.7 was the Google Drive Backup rewrite.
Google will remove the old way to access Google Drive so I have to rewrite all code to support the new way.
In this rewrite I have optimized the whole part and I have also finally fixed the Problem with Android 9 backups/restore.
But be aware that only NEW backups are working to restore.
The background is that on Android 9 they have changed the way Android saves/writes to the database.
There is now a new cache Database with the newest entries. And this entries are not saved into the real database.
So on Android 9 I have to backup also this temporary cache database and on restore I have to restore it too.
For older backups made before version 3.5.7 this cache database wasn’t uploaded and therefore this is missing.
So please make an backup with 3.5.7 and you should be save for a later restore on Android 9 and up.
Google AndroidX Framework
Google has release and shiny new AndroidX Framework to better support of older Android versions.
Because of this I have also changed most of the classes to support this.
As a user you should not get any attention to this because it is all under the hood.
But with a later release you will see the benefits of this change 😉
