I'm happy to release B4A v6.00. This is an important update that advances B4A together with Google's latest innovations.

New features and improvements:
This version is backwards compatible with older versions of B4A.
It is recommended to switch from referencing the complete google play services to referencing the required features. Overall it is simpler as the #AdditionalRes and #ExcludeClasses are no longer required.
Google Maps: https://www.b4x.com/android/forum/threads/google-maps.63930
FusedLocationProvider: https://www.b4x.com/android/forum/t...ay-services-fused-location.67748/#post-429215

Android SDK repositories should be installed: https://www.b4x.com/android/forum/threads/integrating-firebase-services.67692/

I agree TOTALLY with LucaMS.

-Erel is a genius, he knows it, I know it, you know it, everyone knows it. I bet he feels irritated to hear so many thanks... kind of like thanking your mother for giving birth to you every hour on the hour (every new version of the program)... hey, instead of words, actions! What I think he would truly appreciate more is that instead of thanking him we rather and consistently try to help solve the new "apparent" inconsistencies and fast, and share the solutions found, not to be selfish.

-Erel,there is a thing called "digesting the food"... if not, the belly grows... just look at all those high stress ridden countries, people are overweight (although that's not the only cause, of course). By the way, if you are fast (because you are), why not use that speed to implement .... the next point:

-TRULY, I would love more than new features (very few people will get to use them immediately any how) that you would implement all the features being requested, specially by us the paying subscribers... instead, don't get mad, you ignore us... hey, you even ignore the question by giving a technical answer related to the topic but that does not answers or addresses the question directly. You have done that to me. By the way, I'm not upset... I'm good sports, and to prove it, I'm drooping the subject right now.

LucaMS, it does not matter who loves you or who hates you... what matters is that you are right on target and I second you. You said it because you care, because you love B4A... if not, you wouldn't bother to say a word. Medicine tastes bad, no one likes it... but it will save your life, right... (read in between the lines here people)

Thanks LucaMS.


Thanks @luisftv; however, I chose the worst time to say what I said. New in this version of B4A are important and timely, given that Google has given a major turning point, I think.

But the substance remains; I think that our demands ("Wishes") have to be heard more; for example, say that increased support of OOP will not be implemented and the reason is not to do this is complicated but because B4A must remain simple ... well, I do not think Firebase is simple (in fact it is not all yet been implemented) . Furthermore, I believe that some of our old demands can be easily implemented (they can be implemented much more simply than Firebase).

The power of B4X is still ... this site and the Erel's constant presence with his help for us.


I bet he feels irritated to hear so many thanks
I bet you'd lose the bet; many artists, many singers do not continue to sing also at old age to earn more money or because they love music, they continue because they love applauses (I'm not saying Erel's is old, he's young, only 336 years old; in his Planet, this is a young age)
Moreover, people make a better career doing compliments to their boss, rather than criticisms. Also for this reason many companies went bankrupt :)

Congratulations, B4A is a fantastic tool!
B4A will support real time database soon? Any plans to support firebase on B4J too?
