Version 1.2

Version 1.2.0

March 22, 2023

androidx.drawerlayout:drawerlayout:1.2.0 is released. Version 1.2.0 contains these commits.

Important changes since 1.1.0

  • DrawerLayout now integrates with Android 13’s OnBackPressedInvoked APIs to automatically intercept the system back button when the drawer is open. This requires that your app opts into the predictive back gesture.
  • Calling open and close now consistently work even if the drawer is locked. Locking the drawer still prevents users from interacting with the drawer via gestures.
