Thanks, AnkiDroid 2.14.4 ready, and a look to the future
Published on March 8, 2021 by Mike Hardy
Hello AnkiDroid Backers!
We all get enough notifications etc so I will keep this short.
- Thank you! Seriously, thank you! It's hard to find time to contribute to open source projects as business and paying work starts up again in these COVID-times, but your donations allow the contributors here to give AnkiDroid priority, which means your favorite flashcard app will keep moving forward. It's a big deal. Thank you!
- 2.14.4 is releasing today and Android 11 users can crop now! Forward ports to handle new versions are one of the main things we do, by the way.
- 2.15 is coming soon. It's very exciting for us. Why? We will be sharing the underlying code between Anki Desktop and AnkiDroid directly for the first time ever. It was a port before, and hard for us to maintain. Your donations funded work by David Allison to get the new back-end library from Anki Desktop working under AnkiDroid and it's a really big deal. It should fix some of the last few incompatibilities we have between AnkiDroid and Anki Desktop.
There are always more things to say but I said I'd keep it short.
If you're curious what we are up to, you can always see by looking at the pulse: https://github.com/ankidroid/Anki-Android/pulse/monthly
Thanks for your support, and happy reviewing!
