    I'm happy to release B4A version 5.20. All users who are eligible for a free upgrade should receive an email with installation instructions.

    This update adds an important new feature, the "Starter Service".

    The Starter service is a special service module that serves as the program single entry point. This feature solves one of the most common bugs in Android apps which happens when the program starts from a secondary activity or service and some of the resources are not ready.

    See this link for more information: Starter Service - Consistent & Single Entry Point

    Other improvements:
    • Blocks completion: http://www.b4x.com/android/forum/threads/56983
    • The backwards / forward navigation feature was improved and there is a new list with the recent locations (Alt + N).
    • The Logs font can be changed.
    • Sub names are bold.
    • RingtoneManager.Play method.
    • New Designer navigation pad.
    • Warnings engine improved.
    • #SignKeyFile / SignKeyPassword attributes. Allow using a different signing key based on the build configuration.
    • Colors list in the designer color picker.
    • Bug fixes and other minor improvements.

    Existing users who are no longer eligible for a free upgrade will receive an email with a discount offer. It will take several hours for all mails to be sent.

    Thank you Erel,
    I am glad that new tools like B4i and B4J are not affecting the development of B4A.

    @Erel How can I check my license? Your email said this:
    Does it mean my license is expired?
