I'm happy to release B4A v8.80. This version includes a new type of libraries named b4x libraries. b4x libraries are made of B4X code modules, general files, layout files and a manifest file. b4x libraries can be cross platform and also have other advantages over the standard compiled libraries.


  • b4x libraries: [new feature] b4x library - a new type of library
  • Auto-backups: https://www.b4x.com/android/forum/threads/new-feature-auto-backups.100010


  • Go to the code line directly from the logs: https://www.b4x.com/android/forum/t...o-the-code-line-directly-from-the-logs.100090


  • Intent.SetPackage method.
  • Fix for wrong 'dip' scale issue that occurred in some edge cases.
  • Canvas.RemoveClip works with targetSdkVersion = 28.
  • Log correctly shows duplicate messages (relevant to Android 8+ devices).
  • Updated internal libraries: FirebaseAuth v1.06, Camera2 v1.11, XUI2D v1.02, Core v8.80 and debug libs.
  • Debugger improvements:
    - Fix for issue where resumable sub could show the wrong value for a global variable.
    - Fix for issue where the error message points to the wrong module.
  • XUI v1.90 with B4XView.EditTextHint, SetTextSizeAnimated, XUI.CreateFontAwesome and CreateMaterialIcons methods.
  • Other bug fixes and minor improvements.

An email with installation instructions will be sent to all developers who are eligible for a free upgrade. Other developers will receive a renewal offer.

Note that B4J v7.0 was also released today: https://www.b4x.com/android/forum/threads/b4j-v7-0-is-available-for-download.100938/#content

Thank you for your help!!!

Nice one.
What a nice gift you have for us all.

I can't install it at present as I've taken a few days off from development work. 2018 was a great year for all us B4X developers, so let's hope that 2019 is an even more productive year.

B4A, B4J, B4i and B4R all rocks, and so says all of us.

Thank you...
