The developer view of Android 11 appears to be swimming along with today’s first update. With the duplicate developer version of Android 11 1.1, this update has no new features – just an abundance of new patches and fixes. All adjustments made in the development of the Android 11 DP update address provide feedback from Google in the testing process so far. Check out the full changelog below.
Android 11 DP 1.1 update change log
- Applications that target Android 11 will no longer receive a false security exception if they attempt to request a location permission in the foreground, such as ACCESS_COARSE_LOCATION or ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION, and any other permissions at the same time.
Android Studio and tools
- Armeabi-v7a applications no longer lock images from the x86 emulator.
- NDK apps targeting Android 11 are no longer blocked by an issue with the Android Gradle Plugin. This fix is included in Android Studio 4.0 Beta 2 (or higher) and Android Studio 4.1 Canary 1 (or higher).
Non-SSDK interface limitations
- Gray scale restrictions have been relaxed temporarily in a small number of methods used by OkHTTP and related SDKs, which are widely used. This should give app developers more time to test and update their libraries before these restrictions are later reintroduced into the Developer View.
- Fixed an issue where a fatal exception was thrown by com.android.phone.
- Fixed an issue where using the gsi_gms_arm64-user debug build did not boot on Pixel 3 devices.
- Fixed an issue where the Installation Wizard failed to run on Pixel 4 XL devices.
If you want to preview the developer for a spider, OTA and factory images are available for all Pixel devices (excluding the original Pixels) and also for the Android Emulator. Note that it is not yet recommended for daily use. The Android 11 developer preview is for development and testing purposes only, and this update does not change that.
