Hilt-Navigation-Compose Version 1.0.0

Version 1.0.0-beta01

November 17, 2021

androidx.hilt:hilt-navigation-compose:1.0.0-beta01 is released. Version 1.0.0-beta01 contains these commits.

API Changes

  • Remove deprecated hiltNavGraphViewModel() function and its overloads. These were all replaced by hiltViewModel(). (Iaf7d7)

Version 1.0.0-alpha03

June 16, 2021

androidx.hilt:hilt-navigation-compose:1.0.0-alpha03 is released. Version 1.0.0-alpha03 contains these commits.

API Changes

  • The hiltViewModel() method now aligns with the viewModel() API changes in Lifecycle-ViewModel-Compose 1.0.0-alpha07 and now takes an optional ViewModelStoreOwner parameter, rather than having a no argument version and one that takes only a NavBackStackEntry. This allows you to continue to use hiltViewModel() to access the default owner provided by LocalViewModelStoreOwner or use hiltViewModel(navBackStackEntry) or another ViewModelStoreOwner to specify any specific owner. (I2628d)

Version 1.0.0-alpha02

May 18, 2021

androidx.hilt:hilt-navigation-compose:1.0.0-alpha02 is released. Version 1.0.0-alpha02 contains these commits.

API Changes

  • Renamed hiltNavGraphViewModel() to hiltViewModel() and removed the extension on NavController since a user can directly use the navigation-compose API for getting a NavBackStackEntry from a route. (I6ef57)

Compose Compatibility

  • androidx.hilt:hilt-navigation-compose:1.0.0-alpha02 is only compatible with Compose version 1.0.0-beta07 and above.

Dependency updates

Version 1.0.0-alpha01

March 10, 2021

androidx.hilt:hilt-navigation-compose:1.0.0-alpha01 is released. Version 1.0.0-alpha01 contains these commits.

New Features

  • The :hilt-navigation-compose artifact provides APIs that allow users to get a @HiltViewModel annotated ViewModel from a Navigation back stack entry within a Compose application using :navigation-compose. The function hiltNavGraphViewModel() can either take a NavBackStackEntry or a 'route' string that can be used to scope the ViewModel to either the current back stack entry or to a parent entry in the stack. (Ia9234)

Version 1.0.0

Version 1.0.0

May 5, 2021

androidx.hilt:hilt-*:1.0.0 is released. Version 1.0.0 contains these commits.

Major features of 1.0.0

Version 1.0.0-beta01

March 10, 2021

androidx.hilt:hilt-*:1.0.0-beta01 is released. Version 1.0.0-beta01 contains these commits.

API Changes

  • Remove @Deprecated types from the AndroidX Hilt artifacts, specifically @androidx.hilt.ViewModelInject and @androidx.hilt.Assisted. Note that @ViewModelInject was replaced by @HiltViewModel. (I626fe)

Version 1.0.0-alpha03

January 27, 2021

androidx.hilt:hilt-*:1.0.0-alpha03 is released. Version 1.0.0-alpha03 contains these commits.

New Features

  • Provide APIs for retrieving @HiltViewModel annotated ViewModel from a Navigation NavBackStackEntry. The artifact hilt-navigation-fragment offers a hiltNavGraphViewModels Kotlin extension while hilt-navigation exposes a HiltViewModelFactory factory method that takes in a NavBackStackEntry as argument and returns a ViewModelProvider.Facctory that can be used with ViewModelProvider or other View Model retrieving APIs, such as Compose’s viewModel() function: viewModel(HiltViewModelFactory(AmbientContext.current, backStackEntry)). (I00e67)

API Changes

  • Replace @WorkerInject with @HiltWorker. @HiltWorker is now a type annotation and requires the usage of @AssistedInject in the constructor. (Ic2f15)
  • Deprecate @ViewModelInject. Equivalent functionality is now offered by @HiltViewModel, which is now part of the core Hilt Android APIs. (I36a41)

Bug Fixes

  • Fix an issue where AndroidX Hilt extension Modules would not get correctly picked up by Hilt causing Workers to not be available for creation. (I3181c, b/159540434)
  • Migrate AndroidX Hilt extensions to the SingletonComponent, removing the deprecated warning of using ApplicationCompoonent. (I9c916, b/175849092)
