Changes

  • Fixed logging live activities update as an error instead of debug

16.10.0-beta October 6, 2022

Beta release for SDK 16.10.0 that adds support for live activities. To support live activities, you must call restore once after takeOff during application(_:didFinishLaunchingWithOptions:) with all the live activity types that you might track with Airship:

  Airship.takeOff(config, launchOptions: launchOptions)

  Task {
      await Airship.channel.restoreLiveActivityTracking { restorer in
          await restorer.restore(
            forType: Activity<DeliveryAttributes>.self
          )
          await restorer.restore(
            forType: Activity<SomeOtherAttributes>.self
          )
      }
  }

Then whenever you want Airship to track an activity, call trackLiveActivity on the channel instance with the name of the activity:

  Task {
      await Airship.channel.trackLiveActivity(
          activity,
          name: "my-neat-activity"
      )
  }

You will then be able to send updates through the Airship Push API to the live activity using the name my-neat-activity.

Changes

Applications that use open URL action, landing pages, and custom in-app message image URLs will need to provide a list of URL patterns that match those URLs for SCOPE_OPEN_URL. The easiest way to go back to 13.x behavior is to add the wildcard symbol * to the array under the URLAllowListScopeOpenURL key in your AirshipConfig.plist.
  • Channel Capture tool now detects a knock of 6 app opens in 30 seconds. Instead of displaying anything to the user, the tool will write the current channel ID to the clipboard.
  • UAWhitelist class and terminology removed and replaced with UAURLAllowList.
  • UAActionAutomation class and functionality has been moved to UAInAppAutomation, which covers both Action Automation and In-App Messages.
  • In-App Automation APIs have been updated to support future IAA enhancements.
