airsdk.dev, extension updates, and more on APM

I am hope you aren't sick of hearing about APM, we are really excited for this tool so may feel like that is all we are talking about recently. We have been pushing out all our extensions as air packages and have over 70 packages in the repository now and are hoping to complete all our extensions early in October.

APM, Adverts and Android 30

Another big month, APM is moving along quickly and our first version of manifest merging has been added! We are super excited about this tool and the way it will change AIR development. I know a lot of the people we talk to emphasise the lack of quick integration being the biggest hurdle with AIR development and we believe this tool is almost ready to resolve that.

Other updates include latest AdMob SDK and mediation networks. Flurry SDK has been updated and the new "standard events" added. CameraUI has had some major changes integrated to support Android 30, and the Scanner extension had some bug fixes released.

APM, AdMob

Here we are already at the mid point of the year! This month has been lots of internal work for us here at distriqt and not a lot of public releases, so this will be a short one this month.

I have mainly been focussed on APM, and am really excited to get this tool out to developers.

APM, AdMob and Google Play Services.

This month has seen major development work being done on APM. We are excited that some sponsorship has meant we have been able to spend some time on this tool and we are hoping to start releasing some prototypes to the community.

AdMob had a major update last month and we have updated the Adverts extension to reflect this major change. This has been a large amount of work for us, so hopefully it's keeping your AIR applications running smoothly with monetisation through advertising!

We are continuing towards some Flutter extensions and are still looking for suggestions. If anyone has any requests we are looking for a good initial project to expand our services, please feel free to get in touch with your ideas.

Game Services, Vibration (Haptics), Scanning and more Unity.

Hope everyone is keeping safe out there. This month has seen some much requested updates to several of our extensions, including the Game Center access point, scanning within a viewport and haptic engine (vibrations) functionality.

Additionally we have released some more Unity plugins available now for our subscribers and in the Unity Asset Store.

We are also working towards some Flutter extensions and investing time in the platform. If anyone has any requests we are currently looking for a good initial project to expand our services, please feel free to get in touch.

APM, InAppBilling, OneSignal, Facebook and Unity

This month we have updated some of our most important extensions, including a new service for In-App Billing (Samsung and macOS), major SDK updates for OneSignal (Push Notifications) and Facebook.

Additionally we have released several of our extensions as Unity Plugins on the Unity Asset Store. This allows us to move into a new market while still bringing much needed tools to AIR. Any feedback is welcome.

AIR Package Manager#

Our lead developer is working on a pet project at the moment and is looking for support to get it off the ground.

The AIR Package Manager allows management of AIR libraries and extensions and assists in creation of the application descriptor.

It’s a much needed missing part of the AIR ecosystem but unfortunately it’s too large a project for us to develop internally. Have a look at the repository and if you have any thoughts and feel you could help please reach out, either by sponsoring or contributing.

Firebase, Facebook, Advertising, Game Services and more…

We are starting the year with a series of updates for some of our biggest extensions. With the privacy changes for IDFA in iOS 14 looming a lot of the advertising SDKs have been updated to get ready for this change. We have updates for AdMob and IronSource available to supposedly address these changes.

A lot of updates to start the year, so please let us know if there are any concerns about updating the extensions. We have migration guides available where the changes are significant so look for those in the documentation.

What a year 2020 has been. I’m sure we are all looking forward to a more sensible 2021 but as I write this we are entering another lockdown due to the new variant of COVID.

Here’s to a busy and fun filled 2021! Stay safe everyone!
