Change Log #

[0.2.4] - 2019-01-12 #

  • [Changed] Update device_info dependency -> 0.3.0.
  • [Changed] Android Service: Return START_STICKY instead of START_REDELIVER_INTENT.
  • [Changed] Android: setShowBadge(false) on Android NotificationChannel. Some users reporting that Android shows a badge-count on app icon when service is started / stopped.
  • [Fixed] Android NPE in watchPosition
  • [Added] Added method getProviderState for querying current state of location-services.
  • [Added] Added method requestPermission for manually requesting location-permission (#start, #getCurrentPosition, #watchPosition etc, will already automatically request permission.

[0.2.3] #

  • [Changed] Upgrade Android logger dependency to latest version (logback).
  • [Fixed] Prevent Android foreground-service from auto-starting when location permission is revoked via Settings screen.
  • [Fixed] NPE in Android HTTP Service when manual sync is called. Probably a threading issue with multiple sync operations executed simultaneously.

[0.2.2] - 2018-11-21 #

  • [Fixed] Android headless callback ids can be of Class Long vs Integer when assemble for release vs debug. Very odd, but added class-detection code.

[0.2.1] - 2018-11-21 #

  • [Fixed] Android headless configuration was setting incorrect headlessJobService class name.
  • [Fixed] Android onActivityTerminate listener was incorrectly sending a signal to the native library when location permission activity was closed, incorrectly sending a signal that the app was terminated. This would remove all event-listeners.
  • [Added] Android SDK 28 requires new permission to use foreground-service.
  • [Fixed] Do not calculate odometer with geofence events. Android geofence event's location timestamp does not correspond with the actual time the geofence fires since Android is performing some heuristics in the background to ensure the potential geofence event is not a false positive. The actual geofence event can fire some minutes in the future (ie: the location timestamp will be some minutues in the past). Using geofence location in odometer calculations will corrupt the odometer value.
  • [Fixed] Android could not dynamically update the locationTemplate / geofenceTemplate without #stop and application restart.
  • [Fixed] Android startGeofences after revoking & re-granting permission would fail to launch the plugin's Service.

[0.2.0] - 2018-11-12 #

  • [Changed] Include background_fetch as an external dependency rather than including iOS TSBackgroundFetch.framework directly (this was always the plan).
  • [Changed] In example, import flutter_map (Leaflet) instead of google_map (too buggy and not ready).

[0.1.7] - 2018-10-17 #

  • [Fixed] Issue #8. Could not modify button-text of locationAuthorizationAlert after #ready.

[0.1.6] - 2018-10-01 #

  • [Changed] Refactor Android Headless mechanism. Got rid of Android JobScheduler mechanism with more direct EventBus. JobScheduler events were subject to Android time-slicing, causing headless events to arrive late.

[0.1.5] - 2018-09-25 #

  • [Fixed] warnings reported by Flutter publisher.

[0.1.4] - 2018-09-25 #

  • [Added] Android Headless mode. See docs for enableHeadless.
  • [Added] an "event list" screen to "AdvancedApp" example.
  • [Added] error callback for BackgroundGeolocation.onLocation.
  • [Fixed] Issue #5 podspec property s.static_framework = true to allow the plugin to work in apps where use_frameworks! directive is applied in Podfile (Thanks to @vova-beloded).

[0.1.3] - 2018-09-20 #

  • Implementing Dart-style docs with dartdoc
  • Re-organize /lib dir; remove /src folder (hides classes from dartdoc).

[0.1.2] - 2018-09-17 #

  • Implementing advanced example app.
  • Fix missing removeListener methods for enabledchange, connectivitychange
  • Implement destroyLog
  • Implement instrumented testing in example/test_driver. See examples/scripts/
  • Fix warnings.

[0.1.1] - 2018-09-15 #

  • Implementing advanced example app.
  • Fix bug in getGeofences

[0.1.0] - 2018-09-13 #

  • First working beta release.

[0.0.1] - 2018-07-07 #

  • Reserve namespace. Plugin not yet implemented.
