4.0 - March 25, 2015

The Facebook SDK for Android v4.0 is a major version upgrade which features:

  • Improved login programming model.
  • Improved sharing programming model, and more ways to share without needing an access token.
  • Improved error handling and error recovery mechanism.
  • The SDK now allows developers to run ProGuard across the entire project, reducing the footprint in the final APK.

This describes the major differences between v3.x and v4.0 of the SDK. For details on upgrading, see Upgrading the Android SDK from 3.x to 4.x.

Facebook SDK

Added

Login:

  • LoginManager and AccessToken - These new classes perform Facebook Login. For more information, see Facebook Login for Android.

  • AccessTokenTracker - This new class receives notifications of access token changes. This includes when a token gets updated, or when a different user logs in. See Facebook Login for Android, Track Access Tokens.

  • Profile and ProfileTracker Are new classes to get notifications of profile changes, such as when a different person logs in to your app. See Facebook Login for Android, Track Current Profile.

  • Login and Graph API Errors - LoginManager can now resolve GraphRequest errors which are login related. See LoginManager.resolveError()

Sharing:

  • ShareApi class to help sharing through the Graph API.

Dialogs:

  • Strongly typed dialog classes - Are added for App Invites, App Group creation, App Group joins, Game Requests, Messages and Share. Each *Dialog class has an associated *Content class with a Builder so you can easily set parameters.

Modified

  • Deprecated - Any classes or methods marked as @deprecated in 3.x have been removed. Some feature specific classes have been moved into their own packages such as com.facebook.login and com.facebook.share.

  • Graph API - GraphObject, OpenGraphObject and OpenGraphAction classes have been removed in favor of using JSON objects directly. Apps that use OG objects/actions for sharing can still use the helper methods in the ShareOpenGraphObject and ShareOpenGraphAction classes to build an OG object/action. This allows developers to use ProGuard on their entire project.

  • UiLifecycleHelper removed - This is removed and the various onActivityResult or handleOnActivityResult calls for passing results for login or the dialogs are now in the CallbackManager class.

  • LoginFragment - Has been removed.

  • Picker fragments - Have been removed.

Sharing:

  • Sharing Classes - Many types for Sharing have been modified. See the Sharing on Android.

  • Dialog Changes - All *Dialog classes are converted to use FacebookCallback and CallbackManager.

  • Automatic Web Fallback - ShareDialog and AppInviteDialog automatically fall back to using a web dialog if the Facebook app is not present on device. See Sharing on Android , Built-In Share Fallbacks.

Login:

  • AccessToken now has userId.

  • Replacement Classes - Session and UserSettingsFragment have been removed and replaced by the LoginManager and AccessToken classes. LoginActivity is replaced by FacebookActivity.

Error-Handling
