What’s in the box?

This release includes the following changes:

  • Keyboard composition has been fixed ; you can now type symbols the way you are used to. For example, on most European keyboard layouts, press “Alt Gr” + “E” to get the Euro symbol.

Deprecating older Android versions

We are deprecating Android 4.1, 4.2 and 4.3 support. Genymotion Desktop 3.0 can create devices with those Android versions (using Genymotion Virtual Devices 2.13). But they won’t be available in Genymotion Desktop 3.1. If you rely on such devices, we recommend migrating your setup to at least Android 4.4.

Availability

These new devices are now available for Genymotion Desktop 3.0 users and Genymotion Cloud SaaS.

Improvement

A new command: logzip

This new command will gather all gmsaas logs into one ZIP file.

This file is named like gmsaas-logs-YYYYMMDD-HHMMSS.zip, and generated in the current directory.

Whatever your problem is, the logs are handy to help us investigate on any issue you may have found when using our SaaS product. Just follow the steps below:

  • reproduce your issue
  • run gmsaas logzip
  • contact us with the generated ZIP archive as an attachment
