Android Studio 4.2 Improves UX, Productivity

The Android community has posted Android Studio 4.2 to the stable release channel, complete with full Java 15 support and other improvements to the underlying IntelliJ Idea platform, a migration assistant and additional productivity enhancements. 


Time to Target Android SDK 30

August 30 is the mandatory deadline for targeting SDK 30. Will your apps be ready? Here's a brief guide to what might be in store.  


Bootstrap 5 Lands New Components 

The latest version of the Bootstrap CSS framework now includes an "offcanvas" component, accordion, and new and updated forms. There's also  new, cleaner docs.
