Changes

  • Android: Added support for Android SDK 31 and 33.

  • Android: Android SDK must have cmdline-tools component installed now. Unity will ignore tools component.

  • Android: Default gradle templates have changed significantly with new Gradle and AGP versions. Gradle templates in existing projects will have to be recreated based on new default templates when upgrading projects created with previous Unity versions.

  • Android: JDK 11 is required now to build Android apps.

  • Android: Modified the input device listener so it now processes the callback on the UI thread. The callbacks were previously being processed in Unity's main thread but this is incompatible with the GameActivity setup, where Java looper is not present on Unity's main thread.

  • Android: Removed editor UI option which allowed to choose between R8 and Proguard tools to minify code. New AGP version doesn't have an option to minify using proguard. Instead R8 is always used.

  • Asset Bundles: When the Asset Bundle cache layout was changed in 2017, an automatic migration codepath was added to check for asset bundles in the old cache location and move them into the new cache, so that end users would not need to re-download the bundles just because the cache layout changed. As 5 years have now passed, it is unlikely that this automatic migration still has any value, so the behavior has been removed.

  • Documentation: Added documentation for public-facing methods EditorUserBuildSettings.SwitchActiveBuildTarget, NamedBuildTarget.FromBuildTargetGroup, and NamedBuildTarget.ToBuildTargetGroup.
