    Merge branch 'master' into dev

  • oasisfeng (10 Apr 21)

    ADD: Release version 5.3.

  • oasisfeng (10 Apr 21)

    UPDATE: Privacy-related disclosure is not shown as expected on Android R.

  • oasisfeng (10 Apr 21)

    UPDATE: Upgrade version of Android Gradle build plug-in and Kotlin.

  • oasisfeng (09 Apr 21)

    FIX: Minor crash.

  • oasisfeng (07 Apr 21)

    REMOVE: "Setup a separate Island" card in Discover tab. Creating Island manually in God mode is disallowed by Android 11+.

  • oasisfeng (06 Apr 21)

    FIX: ShuttleProvider is not working on newest Android 11 revision, if target Island is not unlocked.

  • oasisfeng (06 Apr 21)

    FIX: Refresh user state to reflect the changes to Island space, when main UI is started by manual provisioning.

  • oasisfeng (06 Apr 21)

    UPDATE: Remove tab when selected, if that Island space is removed elsewhere (e.g. via ADB shell).

  • oasisfeng (06 Apr 21)

    UPDATE: Minor tweaks.

  • oasisfeng (06 Apr 21)

    FIX: The action tip "Freeze" should not be shown for frozen app.

  • oasisfeng (06 Apr 21)

    UPDATE: Place app action "Freeze" before "Clone".

  • oasisfeng (06 Apr 21)

    FIX: Besides persistent service for shortcut synchronization, also update shortcuts upon device start-up and Island app update. Rename ShortcutsRepairer to ShortcutsUpdater as the former is most probably disabled in previous version of Island.

  • oasisfeng (02 Apr 21)

    FIX: The "Cross-profile apps" setting should not be shown for Mainland if not managed.

  • oasisfeng (02 Apr 21)

    FIX: Bring back launch shortcut prefix settings on Android 7, since Dynamic Shortcut Label is only supported on Android 8+.

  • oasisfeng (24 Mar 21)

    FIX: ShuttleResult.NOT_READY is incorrectly defined. For inline class, bundle == null cannot be differentiated from ShuttleResult == null.

  • oasisfeng (19 Mar 21)

    UPDATE: Update app label for app installation session when parsing is done, in case other party relies on that.

  • oasisfeng (17 Mar 21)

    UPDATE: No longer show App Ops Manager except on Android P & Q.

  • oasisfeng (17 Mar 21)

    FIX: Crash in crash reporting.

  • oasisfeng (17 Mar 21)

    UPDATE: Minor tweaks.

  • oasisfeng (17 Mar 21)

    ADD: New ContentProvider-based lambda shuttle implementation, to replace PendingIntentShuttle. This new implementation requires only one-time initialization, not every device boot-up. It is always synchronous, thus no more complex coroutines.

  • oasisfeng (16 Mar 21)

    UPDATE: Add a placeholder entry in app list UI for app being cloned. As App Installer is migrated to notification-based UI, we need a visual feedback for cloning procedure since it may take some time to finish.
