I'm happy to release B4A v12.5.

This update makes B4A ready for setting targetSdkVersion to 33. This will be required by Google Play in a couple of months.
  • Default targetSdkVersion set to 33.
  • RuntimePermissions library updated with the new and a bit special POST_NOTIFICATIONS permission: https://www.b4x.com/android/forum/threads/notifications-permission-with-targetsdkversion-33.148233/
  • New B4XView.Alpha property and SetAlphaAnimated method. These will also be added to B4J and B4i in the next update.
  • Debugger improvements including performance improvements and bug fixes.
  • B4XLibs modules and files can be overridden. This is done by adding the module or file to the project. The compiler now accepts it and gives higher precedence to the project files.
  • New #ModuleVisibility attribute. Value can be Public - default visibility, or B4XLib. B4XLib means that the module methods and fields will not be visible once the module is packed as a b4xlib. Note that it is an IDE feature and is ignored by the compiler (might be changed in the future).
  • #ExcludeFromDebugger attribute removed.
  • ADB installation allows downgrading apps, based on the #VersionCode value.
  • Comment link to go to layout:
    'main page layout - ide://goto?Layout=MainPage
  • Updated internal libraries: XUI v2.3, RuntimePermissions v1.2, Core v12.5, SimpleMediaManager v1.13, BCTextEngine v1.95, B4XFormatter v1.04, XUI Views v2.56, OkHttpUtils2 v3.02
  • Other bug fixes and minor improvements
