New Features

  • material3-window-size-class is a new library that provides support for window size classes: a set of opinionated viewport breakpoints for you to design, develop, and test resizable application layouts against. You can use calculateWindowSizeClass to retrieve a window size class instance, which you can use to determine how your UI should appear, such as showing a navigation rail instead of bottom navigation for larger window sizes. For more information and sample usage see the API reference documentation for WindowSizeClass. For more information on window size class definitions, see the public guidance on supporting different screen sizes.

  • PointerInputChange::copy() now always makes a shallow copy. It means that copies of PointerInputChange will be consumed once one of the copies is consumed. If you want to create an unbound PointerInputChange, use constructor instead. (Ie6be4, b/225669674)

  • The parameter backgroundColor has been renamed containerColor in Material 3 text fields for improved consistency with other components. (I6fbd9)

Bug Fixes

  • Updates to the standard IconButton to align it with the Material3 spec. (I09eab)
