I'm happy to release of B4i v2.80. This update adds support for Firebase backend services.

The following services are currently supported:
- Analytics: https://www.b4x.com/android/forum/threads/68623/#content
- Authentication (Google + Facebook): https://www.b4x.com/android/forum/threads/68625/#content
- Notifications / push messages: https://www.b4x.com/android/forum/t...ions-push-messages-server-not-required.68645/
- Storage. See the B4A tutorial: https://www.b4x.com/android/forum/threads/firebasestorage-simple-file-storage-backend.68350/#content

The libraries are similar to B4A libraries which makes it simple to implement cross platform solutions.

Other improvements:

- Support for localization of the app name. Tutorial will be available soon.
- Better support for large projects when working with a local Mac (200mb+).
- Support for latest version of AdMob framework.
- Bug fixes and other minor improvements.

- Application_OpenUrl signature has changed to:
Sub Application_OpenUrl (Url As String, Data As Object, SourceApplication As String) As Boolean
The previous signature will work but it is recommended to update it.
- Application_RemoteNotification signature has also changed to:
Sub Application_RemoteNotification (Message As Map, CompletionHandler As CompletionHandler)
   Msgbox(Message.Get("title"), "")
End Sub
It is recommended to update to the new signature and call CompletionHandler.Complete.

Users who are eligible for a free upgrade will receive an email with installation instructions.

This is exactly what I needed to finish porting over my b4a app to b4i.
Your timing is impeccable.
