Xamarin.Forms 4.4.0.991265 (4.4.0) Release Notes

Summary

Xamarin.Forms 4.4.0 introduces new controls, continued development for Shell and CollectionView, and many other quality improvements.

GIF Animations

The existing Image control now supports rendering GIF images. This is intended for small, short animations. Caching and streaming is not supported. The animation will play once or loop based on the metadata encoded into the image. To check and control playback, use the new IsAnimationPlaying bindable property.

<Image Source="animatedImage.gif"/>

Note: GIF animations are not supported on legacy Android renderers.

CarouselView (Preview)

Work continues on completing features for a rich CarouselView experience. For details on using CarouselView refer to the preview documentation.

IndicatorView (Preview)

To let you display pagination dots for a CarouselView, we have added an independent control that may be positioned anywhere you like and which also supports adding custom templates with visual states. To associate an IndicatorView with a carousel, populate the attached property IndicatorView.ItemsSourceBy with the name of the carousel.

<CarouselView x:Name="myCarousel">
// content of your carousel
</CarouselView>
<IndicatorView 
   IndicatorColor="LightGray"
   SelectedIndicatorColor="Black"
   IndicatorSize="10" HorizontalOptions="Center"
   IndicatorView.ItemsSourceBy="myCarousel"/>

We're still working on the public API for this feature, so please test it out by setting the Forms.SetFlags("IndicatorView_Experimental") flag before Forms.Init() in your head projects and let us know what you think.

CarouselGallery Samples

SwipeView (Preview)

Have you missed having ContextActions in the CollectionView? We've added something better. Now you can use a SwipeView to easily configure swipe-to-reveal menu items. If you need more customization than menu items allow, you can also configure custom views to reveal instead. Swipe from any direction you like, and even display different menu items based on the swipe direction. Plus, you're not limited to using this in a CollectionView. Try using the SwipeView to create a custom refresh indicator action.

We're so excited to get your feedback about SwipeView that we're releasing it to you early, so please test it out by setting the Forms.SetFlags("SwipeView_Experimental") flag before Forms.Init() in your head projects and let us know what you think.

Animation Enhancements

Contributed during Hacktoberfest, animation methods have been added for ScaleXTo and ScaleYTo.

Example:

void AnimateButton_Clicked(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
 _boxView.ScaleYTo(2, 250, Easing.CubicInOut);
 _boxView.ScaleXTo(1.5, 400, Easing.BounceOut);
}
