EventBus 3.1 with plain Java support

With over 25% of the top Android apps using it, EventBus is more popular than ever before. So we’re very happy to announce EventBus 3.1 today. Starting with this release, EventBus works with plain Java (non-Android) projects. This has two major benefits: Firstly, it opens up EventBus for all Java developers and makes it usable for server and desktop applications. Secondly, it allows Android developers to use EventBus in local unit tests. Before, you had to use instrumentation tests which are slow and require a device. In contrast to this, plain Java unit tests are blazingly fast as they run directly on your desktop machine.

greenDAO 3.2.2 Bugfix Release

This week we released greenDAO 3.2.2 with a couple of bug fixes. We want to highlight better interoperability with the Android Gradle plugin. With each new release of Android Gradle plugin, there have been conflicts with greenDAO plugin as both use “JDT”, a library to parse and manipulate Java Sources. To solve those conflicts once and for all, we now ship the greenDAO plugin with a repackaged version of JDT. Thus we are independent of other tools and can use the latest JDT versions. For best developer experience, we recommend everybody to update to greenDAO 3.2.2.
