Announcing breaking changes: October 31, 2022

General

What is changing?

  • Move ChargingInformation class to com.tomtom.sdk.common.ev package.
  • Change packages: com.tomtom.sdk.featuretoggle -> com.tomtom.sdk.common.featuretoggle.
  • Renamed packages in maps-display, common, route, and location modules.
  • Renamed API classes in common and location modules.

Maps

What is changing?

  • In previous SDKs, the NdsStore's methods addRegionGraphListener and removeRegionGraphListener were accepting lambdas and then functional interfaces (SAM) could be passed to it. With the future SDK, that will change and a RegionGraphListener must be implemented and passed in. There is also a difference in behavior. Previously, any changes to the state of the nodes in the graph would have triggered an onRegionGraphChanged notification. To increase the usability of the API, we will separate the notifications that impact the structure of the graph (new structure of the nodes) from those that notify about changes in the state of the node.
