Hollywood APK Compiler 3.0 released

Airsoft Softwair, the hardest working men in code business, are proud to present a brand-new version of one of the most popular add-ons for Hollywood 8.0: The Hollywood APK Compiler 3.0. This program converts Hollywood applets into stand-alone APK packages that can then be published on the Google Play Store where they will be available to billions of Android users. Once the Hollywood APK Compiler has been set up, the conversion of a Hollywood applet into an APK file takes only a few seconds.

Version 3.0 is a major update which adds support for Hollywood 8.0 as well as for RapaGUI 2.0. It also introduces a new build caching mechanism which greatly reduces build times. It is also possible to link whole directories of assets to the APK now and the plugin linker is much more efficient too. Furthermore, the Hollywood APK Compiler is now available in a Home Edition and a Professional Edition. The Professional Edition of the Hollywood APK Compiler removes the "Powered by Hollywood" splash screen, it allows you to execute custom Java code and it also allows the customization of the Hollywood APK Compiler's Android manifest and Gradle build scripts. See here for a detailed comparison between the Home and Professional Edition.

All people who have bought Hollywood 8.0 and a previous version of the Hollywood APK Compiler can request a free upgrade to the Home Edition of the Hollywood APK Compiler via e-mail. Alternatively, people who already own a previous version of the Hollywood APK Compiler can also upgrade to the Professional Edition with a discount. See here for more information.

Note that the Hollywood APK Compiler is currently only available for the Microsoft Windows platform because it requires the Java SE Development Kit (JDK) and the Android SDK, both of which are available for free download from the web.

Get ready for Android development and purchase the Hollywood APK Compiler now on the official Hollywood portal!

This release was brought to you by Airsoft Softwair - the hardest working men in code business.

Sure, it does. It has everything you need for a bright Android future :)

Btw, I forgot to mention another new feature: You can also switch between light and dark themes now for your APK :)

Does this new version include a fix for this bug:
viewtopic.php?f=4&t=2063 ?

If it has not been directly fixed, is there a work-around for getting rid of that extra black on the side of the display?

No, it's not fixed yet. This needs some more thoughts and I don't think there's a workaround... proportional scaling is tricky...

Sorry to hear that. (It is quite a visually annoying bug.)
I'll still upgrade. Perhaps the dark theme will make the bug less noticeable.

Thanks, I'll try to get that "KeepProportions" bug resolved for you shortly... it's a rarely used feature, maybe that's why nobody noticed it was broken.
