  • Documented how to use method call removal to remove Android logging calls.
  • Improved usability of file browsing dialogs in the DashO GUI.
  • A default editor (notepad.exe on Windows or on macOS) is now used when viewing the project and reports.

  • The samples have been moved online and are no longer included with the DashO installation.
  • Improved organization of GUI documentation.
  • Wildcard class matching for method call removal is deprecated.
  • The <obfuscate-jar> task, in the Ant integration, is deprecated.
  • Updated the DashO Gradle Plugin:
    • v3.1.0 with support for the Android Gradle 3.1.0 & 3.1.1 plugins and which uses minifyEnabled instead of disabledForBuildVariants.
    • v3.0.3 with the generateProGuardMap configuration option.
  • Includes apktool-2.3.3.
  • Includes dex-tools-2.1-nightly-28.
