Breaking changes:

  • Deprecate old build system. Carthage is not required anymore. To fix your current project please do following steps:

    1. Add empty Swift file if you don't have at least one:
      • Select File/New/File...
      • Choose Swift file and click Next.
      • Name it however you want, select your targets and create it.
      • Accept to create Objective-C bridging header.
    2. Remove copy-frameworks script if you don't have any other dependency requiring it:
      • Go to Your Target / Build Phases
      • Remove run script.

Other:

  • Fix warning when no listeners were attached and events were emitted.
  • Show error.message properly. Make sure that invalid errorCodes from implementation side won't trigger another error during construction.
  • Property ServiceUUID is properly propagated to IncludedServicesDiscoveryFailed's error message.
  • Add missing deviceServicesNotDiscovered implementation on Android.
