Hi Joel,

I've read recently that WebView has been deprecated. What has replaced it and is it covered in your book.

Thanks,

Frank

WebView has been deprecated? This is news to me. Where did your read it? Can you please share some article or source about this?

Whoops - according to Google, who should know, it looks like only some parts of it have been deprecated.

Starting with Android 5, WebView is implemented on top of a different rendering engine -and the Android docs talk about what has changed-, but WebView will continue to be fully supported (including getting fixes through the Play Store).

Whew! I'm glad it wasn't deprecated because I just added some coverage of it to the second (current) edition of my book. I tested it on several different versions of Android, including Android 6, and it worked fine. Thanks!
