# Release Notes

We are pleased to announce the availability of version 4.11.3.0 (Explore Edition) of the new HERE SDK for Android.

This is a stable release. We are constantly working on new features, stabilizing APIs, improving our KPIs, and evaluating your feedback.

## Changes

This section documents major changes to this release that may require you to update your applications.

### Version 4.11.3.0

#### New Features

• Added class PickMapContentResult.TrafficIncidentResult containing all data of a picked traffic incident. Added PickMapContentResult.getTrafficIncidents for retrieving picked traffic incidents.
• This version of the HERE SDK is delivered with map data version 41.
• Added void MapCamera.lookAt(GeoCoordinates, MapMeasure) and void MapCamera.lookAt(GeoCoordinates, GeoOrientationUpdate, MapMeasure).
• Added sdk.transport.TruckSpecifications as replacement for the deprecated sdk.routing.TruckSpecifications.

#### API Changes - Deprecations

• Deprecated sdk.routing.TruckSpecifications class. Use 'sdk.transport.TruckSpecifications' instead.
• Deprecated void MapCamera.lookAt(GeoCoordinates, double) and void MapCamera.lookAt(GeoCoordinates, GeoOrientationUpdate, double). Use instead the newly added lookAt() methods to set a MapMeasure, which allows now to specify if distance, scale or zoom level should be changed.
• Added EVTruckOptions.truck_specifications as replacement for the deprecated EVTruckOptions.specifications.
• Added TruckOptions.truck_specifications as replacement for deprecated TruckOptions.specifications.
• Deprecated TruckOptions.specifications. Use TruckOptions.truck_specificationsinstead.
• Deprecated EVTruckOptions.specifications. Use EVTruckOptions.truck_specificationsinstead.

#### Known Issues

• Outlines for MapPolyline lines can show a minimal gap at certain zoom levels. As a workaround use a round LineCap style.
• The jamFactor indicating TrafficSpeed is currently calculated linear without taking road types and other parameters into account.
• MapViewPin instances cannot be removed after tilting and panning the map.
• MapPolyline instances ignore alpha color settings and will appear fully opaque.
• An inner city Route for trucks carrying dangerous goods may not result in an error message.
• RoutingEngine: The route import feature via a list of Locations cannot be used yet commercially and requires custom access credentials. Please contact your sales representative to get access.
• By default, MapScene.Layers.TRAFFIC_FLOW is no longer visible on the map. This is a license issue which affects all Navigate and Explore Edition users. Please contact us and ask for a HERE SDK license update to get traffic flow data. Your credentials will then be enabled to get access. Explore users can go directly to developer.here.com (instead of the HERE platform self-serve portal) as only the self-serve portal is affected.

### Version 4.11.0.0

#### New Features

• Added low-level 3D support to programmatically add custom 3D objects on the map. Added MeshBuilder, TriangleMeshBuilder and QuadMeshBuilder to construct different kinds of meshes from points in 3D space via Point3D. The resulting Mesh container can be used with a texture graphic to create MapMarker3D objects.
• MapMarker3D objects can now be scaled using a RenderSize.Unit in meters, pixels and densityIndependentPixels.
• Added CategoryQuery.excludeCategories to add a list of PlaceCategory items that should be excluded from a category search for places. These categories can be set with CategoryQuery.withExcludeCategories.
• Added enhanced animation support for MapMarker objects via the new MapMarkerAnimation class. Such animations are based on a MapItemKeyFrameTrack that stores keyframes for interpolation of a map item property. It can be constructed by calling MapItemKeyFrameTrack.moveTo(@NonNull List<GeoCoordinatesKeyframe> keyframes, @NonNull EasingFunction easingFunction, @NonNull KeyframeInterpolationMode interpolationMode). The animation can be started or cancelled via mapMarker.startAnimation(mapMarkerAnimation)/cancelAnimation(mapMarkerAnimation).
• Added support for online Bus route calculation via RoutingEngine. Added TransportMode.BUS and BusOptions.
• Added fade animations for MapMarker by calling setFadeDuration(Duration). The marker will automatically fade-in when being added to the MapView and fade-out when being removed. By default, this feature is disabled. The current fade duration can be retrieved by calling getFadeDuration(). It defaults to 0.
• Added explicit support for flat MapMarker3D objects. Added a convenience constructor for MapMarker3D with a MapImage parameter to create a flat map marker. Use RenderSize.Unit with densityIndependentPixels to create flat marker with a fixed size - independent of zoom level.
• Added enhanced camera animations with MapCameraAnimationFactory.flyTo(GeoCoordinatesUpdate, double, Duration), MapCameraAnimationFactory.flyTo(GeoCoordinatesUpdate, GeoOrientationUpdate, double, Duration), MapCameraAnimationFactory.flyTo(GeoCoordinatesUpdate, MapMeasure, double, Duration), MapCameraAnimationFactory.flyTo(GeoCoordinatesUpdate, GeoOrientationUpdate, MapMeasure, double, Duration).

#### API Changes - Breaking

• Removed the previously deprecated InstantiationErrorCode.FAILED_TO_LOCK_PERSISTENT_MAP_STORAGE_FOLDER. Nothing to use instead: The persistent storage directory is no longer locked.

• The TrafficEngine can handle now GeoCorridor objects without a radius. When the radius via halfWidthInMeters is unset, a default value of 30 meters is used.
• The returnToRoute() feature of the RoutingEngine now routes back to the first untravelled waypoint and the routeFractionTraveled parameter is no longer ignored.

#### Known Issues

• Outlines for MapPolyline lines can show a minimal gap at certain zoom levels. As a workaround use a round LineCap style.
• Finding traffic on a route via trafficEngine.queryForIncidents fails unexpectedly for GeoCorridor objects that are much shorter than 500 km.

### Version 4.10.1.0

#### New Features

• Routing: Route calculations can now be canceled via the returned TaskHandle when calling calculateRoute() or related methods on engines such as the RoutingEngine.
• BYOD: Extended GeoPlace to hold more information: Added ExternalID, LocationDetails, WebDetails, BusinessDetails.
• Added matchSideOfStreet property to Waypoint class. It specifies how the location set by sideOfStreetHint should be handled when reaching a destination.
• Added global ParameterConfiguration that holds default values for HERE SDK features. For now, this allows to specify a walkingSpeedInMetersPerSecond to define a default pedestrian movement. Added TransitRouteOptions.fromDefaultParameterConfiguration() and PedestrianOptions.fromDefaultParameterConfiguration() that allow to create TransitRouteOptions and PedestrianOptions that will use the values set via ParameterConfiguration. The created options can then be used as usual for route calculation. Note that this is a beta feature.
• Added a new TrafficEngine that allows querying for current traffic incidents. Check the Traffic example app to see how it works. The TrafficEngine supports querying for traffic incidents in a bounding box, a circle, or a corridor. Querying for the exact traffic incident by ID. Traffic incidents can contain an incident type, an incident impact, an incident location (currently, a polyline with length), incident codes, an active time range, localized by the queried language description and summary, relevant vehicle restrictions, and more. It supports representations of traffic incident vehicle restrictions as a set of restricted vehicle properties of some vehicle category and filtering queried incidents by an incident type, an incident impact and an active time range.
• Added RouteOptions.occupantsNumber: An option reflecting the number of occupants in a vehicle. Supported for CAR and TRUCK transport modes. When it is higher than 1 it affects a vehicles ability to use HOV/carpool lanes. Defaults to 1.
• Extended MapSurface constructor to add MapViewOptions to support MapProjection.GLOBE and MapProjection.WEB_MERCATOR projections.

#### API Changes

• Changed type of RefreshRouteOptions constructor parameter from sdk.routing.TransportMode to sdk.transport.TransportMode.

#### Resolved Issues

• Fixed: The newly introduced zoom level behaves inconsistent across different devices as the shown level of detail depends on the physical screen size of a device.
• Fixed: Updating an existing MapMarker with a completely new image causes the marker to disappear for a brief moment before being drawn with the new image.
• Fixed: When cachePath and persistentMapStoragePath are changed via SDKOptions, then it may not change the default path.
• Fixed: Truck routes that are imported via importRoute() may be result in a RoutingError.NO_ROUTE_FOUND error as certain truck restrictions may be violated along the road. This is incorrect and instead the resulting route should contain the violated restrictions as part of the route's SectionNotice.
• Fixed a crash when MapCameraAnimationFactory.createAnimation(MapCameraUpdate, Duration, EasingFunction) was called.

#### Known Issues

• Outlines for MapPolyline lines can show a minimal gap at certain zoom levels. As a workaround use a round LineCap style.

### Version 4.10.0.0

#### New Features

• MapView: Added support for mercator projection when a MapView is created programmatically. Note that for a future HERE SDK release it is planned to allow this also for MapView instances that are created from a layout file. Added MapViewOptions and MapProjection that allow to specify the map projection. Examples:
• mapView = new MapView(context, new MapViewOptions(MapProjection.GLOBE))
• mapView = new MapView(context, new MapViewOptions(MapProjection.WEB_MERCATOR))
• Added MapContext class and added getMapContext() method to MapView. A MapContext is needed when custom data sources for map tiles should be created, such as the new RasterDataSource to support custom raster layers on a MapView.
• MapView: Added support custom raster layers that can be shown as tile overlay on top of the map. Note: This is a beta release of this feature, so there could be a few bugs and unexpected behaviors. Related APIs may change for new releases without a deprecation process. The following classes have been added to support custom raster layers:
• Added RasterDataSourceFactory which is used to create RasterDataSource objects.
• Added RasterDataSource which represents the source of raster tile data to display. It also allows changing its configuration.
• Added RasterDataSourceConfiguration which is used to specify a configuration for the data source, including URL, tiling scheme, storage levels and caching parameters.
• Added TilingScheme enum which specifies how the tile data has to be interpreted.
• Added RasterDataSourceListener interface which can be used to receive notifications from the RasterDataSource.
• Added MapLayer class which represents a renderable map overlay and controls its visibility.
• Added MapLayerBuilder which is used to create MapLayer objects.
• Added MapLayerPriority which specifies the order of drawing a map layer.
• Added MapLayerVisibilityRange which specifies at which zoom levels the map layer will become visible.
• Added MapContentType which specifies the type of data shown by the MapLayer.
• Added HereMap class. Added getHereMap() method to MapView. HereMap is used to initialize a MapLayer that can be used with a MapLayerBuilder to support custom raster layers.
• Import routes: Added RouteHandle​(String handle) constructor that allows to create a RouteHandle from a given string handle. Such a string can be provided from other backend sources such as HERE REST APIs and it is valid for a couple of hours. The string encodes a calculated route and it can be used to import this route via the newly added method importRoute​(@NonNull RouteHandle routeHandle, @NonNull RefreshRouteOptions refreshRouteOptions, @NonNull CalculateRouteCallback callback) of the RoutingEngine for further use with the HERE SDK. Note: This is a beta release of this feature.
• Search: Added a default constructor for Address.

#### API Changes

• Removed the previously deprecated classes MapCamera.Orientation, MapCamera.OrientationUpdate, MapCamera.State.targetOrientation and all methods using them. Use instead the new methods that use the new classes GeoOrientation, GeoOrientationUpdate and MapCamera.State.orientationAtTarget. For example, instead of the removed method MapCamera.lookAt(GeoCoordinates target, MapCamera.OrientationUpdate orientation, double distanceInMeters) use now MapCamera.lookAt(GeoCoordinates target, GeoOrientationUpdate orientation, double distanceInMeters).
• Removed the previously deprecated GeoCorridor.radiusInMeters property. Use the new property GeoCorridor.halfWidthInMeters instead.
• Removed the previously deprecated FarePrice.unit property. Use instead the FarePrice.validityPeriodInSeconds property.
• Removed the previously deprecated Agency.icon property. This feature is no longer supported.
• Replaced usage of java.time.Duration with com.here.time.Duration across the HERE SDK. This ensures that the HERE SDK stays compatible with Android API level 21. Note that com.here.time.Duration is a subset of java.time.Duration and behaves identically.
• Deprecated the method MapScene.setLayerState(String layerName, MapScene.LayerState newState). Use the new method MapScene.setLayerVisibility(String layerName, VisibilityState visibility) instead. Deprecated the enum MapSceneLayerState. Use the enum VisibilityState instead. Deprecated the enum MapScene.LayerState. Use the enum VisibilityState instead.

#### Resolved Issues

• Routing: It is now possible to set a stop duration for each waypoint so that a better overal ETA can be given. Added 'durationInSeconds' property to Waypoint. It defaults to 0. Note that it will be ignored for pass-through waypoints.
• Fixed: MapViewLifecycleListener.onAttach() is now called once MapView has been fully initialized.

#### Known Issues

• Updating an existing MapMarker with a completely new image causes the marker to disappear for a brief moment before being drawn with the new image.
• The newly introduced zoom level behaves inconsistent across different devices as the shown level of detail depends on the physical screen size of a device.
• Transparency for MapPolylines is not supported.
• MapViewPin instances cannot be removed after tilting and panning the map.
• The jamFactor indicating TrafficSpeed is currently calculated linear without taking road types and other parameters into account.

### Version 4.9.4.0

#### New Features

• Routing: Added support for bicycles. Now it is possible to create bicycle routes online with the RoutingEngine using BicycleOptions. Added also TransportMode.bicycle.
• Routing: Added optional field nameHint to Waypoint. For cases when there are multiple places at the same geographic coordinate, this hint can help the RoutingEngine to find the expected place. For example, "North" can be set to differentiate between interstates "I66 North" and "I66 South".
• Routing: It's now possible to set TaxiOptions.allowDriveThroughTaxiRoads. It allows to calculate routes that make use of roads and lanes that are reserved for taxis.

• Added a feature to observe when a MapCamera animation or flyTo()-call has been completed: Added AnimationListener interface, AnimationState enumeration and MapCamera.startAnimation().
• Added a feature to pick embedded carto POIs. By default, embedded POIs are visible on the map and they can be picked now via mapView.pickMapFeatures() to get a PickMapFeaturesResult that contains a PoiResult. Check the Developer's Guide for a usage example.
• Added a convenience feature to tie a LocationIndicator directly to the MapView's life cycle'. For example, be calling the new enable() method, the LocationIndicator is visible on the map. This has the same affect as when calling mapView.addLifecycleDelegate(locationIndicator). Added constructor LocationIndicator(@NonNull final MapViewBase mapView), added methods LocationIndicator.enable(@NonNull final MapViewBase mapView), LocationIndicator.disable()
• MapMarkerCluster items can now be picked - and when picking other map items, clustered markers are no longer returned via pickMapItemsResult.getMarkers(). Instead, call the new pickMapItemsResult.getClusteredMarkers() method. See the MapItems example app and the Developer's Guide for a usage example.

### Version 4.7.5.0

#### New Features

• Routing: Added avoidance options for pedestrians with PedestrianOptions.avoidanceOptions.
• Search: Added support to search along longer route polylines with a GeoCorridor. Either increase halfWidthInMeters when set via constructor or do not set it - by using the GeoCorridor constructor that only allows to set the GeoPolyline. The parameter radiusInMeters has been deprecated: Please only use halfWidthInMeters as constructor parameter to specify the thickness of the route corridor. When increasing halfWidthInMeters then a greater simplification of the polyline shape can be achieved resulting in a longer route that can be searched along. On the downside the results are less accurate and can lie farther away from the route. When halfWidthInMeters is not set, a suitable value is set internally based on "best guess".

#### New Features

• Added new WatermarkStyle enum that defines the style of the HERE watermark logo. The dark watermark should be used for custom styles that are brighter (like daytime) and the light watermark for darker custom schemes (like night or satellite based). Added a new loadScene() method to MapScene to accept the new enum together with a custom style.
• MapCamera: Added FlyToOptions to customize the fly-to animation from current target GeoCoordinates to a new location. The durationInMs parameter defines how long the animation will run, the bowFactor defines a relative camera height for the ballistic curve that ranges from -1 < 0 (concave curve) to 0 (constant height) to 0 < 1 (convex curve). The maximum height can be achieved with a bowFactor of 1, the minimum with -1. Note that the height is relative to the distance between current target and new target to achieve a constant look regardless of the current zoom level.
• Routing: Added sideOfStreetHint property to Waypoint. These optional GeoCoordinates indicate which side of the street should be used to reach the waypoint. For example, if the location is to the left of the street, the route will prefer using that side in case the street has dividers. Hence, if the street has no dividers, sideOfStreetHint is ignored.

#### API Changes

• targetSdkVersion and compileSdkVersion of the internal AndroidManifest used by the HERE SDK have been updated from 28 to 29.

#### Deprecated

• A few methods, fields and constructors of class here.sdk.Color have been deprecated. Instead, use the new methods that have been introduced to the class to conform to Android's native Color class. The new factory methods and getters use a color component of type float with the interval [0,1] - instead of type short and [0,255] that was used for the deprecated components.

#### Resolved Issues

• Fixed an issue with flickering street labels after credentials have been changed.
• Fixed issue with empty IDs for reverse geocoding results: IDs of place results are no longer empty strings and contain now a valid ID.
