Change log and release notes for the Batch SDK. Any variances between Android, iOS, AIR, and Unity will be noted.
v1.9.1 - 16/06/2017
- Batch SDK is now built with and targets API 26
- Added support for Android 8.0 Notification Channels
See Batch.Push.getChannelsManager() and our channels documentation to tweak how Batch handles them.
- Batch requires support-v4 26.0.0, for notifications to work with Android 8.0. (As of writing, only 26.0.0-beta2 is available)
- Eclipse support had been dropped
v1.9.0 - 08/06/2017
- Added the Inbox module, allowing you to fetch previously received notifications from your code. More info: Inbox documentation
v1.8.0 - 26/04/2017
- BREAKING CHANGE: Removed Batch.Ads and Batch.Unlock methods and related classes.
- Added Batch.User.trackLocation, allowing you to natively track user position updates
- Added global notification sound override using Batch.Push.setSound(Uri)
- Un-obfuscated the exception returned by some of BatchPushPayload's methods
- Deprecated Batch.isRunningInDevMode. It is useless, as DEV API Keys always start with "DEV"
v1.7.4 - 24/03/2017
- Fix a bug where the delegate set on BatchMessaging was never called.
v1.7.3 - 16/12/2016
- Fixed a bug that could cause notifications to open the wrong deeplink if multiple notifications were present in the notification shade
v1.7.2 - 14/11/2016

v1.7.1 - 07/11/2016

v1.7.0 - 27/10/2016
v1.6.0 - 12/10/2016
- Batch now requires Android 4.0.3 (API Level 15)
- Batch now targets Android 7 (API Level 24), and should only be used in apps that compile with that SDK version. You should also use a v24 support-v4 library with it.
- Updated notification behaviour to be more adapted to changes introduced in Nougat
setCanUseAdvancedDeviceInformation() has been introduced on the
Config object to reduce the quantity of device information Batch will use. Note that disabling this will limit several dashboard features.
BatchPushData has been deprecated in favour of
BatchPushPayload, which is easier to use and will allow you to read anything used by Batch's standard push receiver. It's also easier to instanciate from an intent/bundle, and easier to serialize.
- InstanceID support has been merged into the main SDK. If migrating from an older SDK, you'll need to add a new service in your manifest, as described in the push setup.
- The overall method count has been reduced.
