1.11.1 (June 20, 2019)

This release fixed some issues with the docs, the CI, and Kivy dependencies that was introduced in 1.11.0 (#6357).

1.11.0 (June 1, 2019)

Installation notes

Windows

  • [#6324]: We are transitioning the kivy Windows dependencies from the kivy.deps.xxx namespace stored under kivy/deps/xxx to the kivy_deps.xxx namespace stored under kivy_deps/xxx. Pip is sometimes not able to distinguish between these two formats, so follow the instructions below.

  • If you’re not upgrading Kivy, please make sure to pin your kivy.deps.xxx==x.y.z dependencies to the versions that was on pypi when your Kivy was released so that you don’t get newer incompatible dependencies.

  • If you’re upgrading Kivy, manually uninstall all the kivy.deps.xxx dependencies because pip will not uninstall them when you’re upgrading. Then re-install the kivy_deps.xxx dependencies as instructed on the Kivy website.

  • If you’re installing the first time, simply follow the instructions on Kivy’s website.

Linux and macOS

  • The new Linux wheels (#6248) can be installed with just pip install kivy, however, just like on macOS it comes without the Gstreamer dependencies so it has no video and minor audio support. For video/audio support, please install ffpyplayer and set KIVY_VIDEO=ffpyplayer in the environment, or install kivy using an alternative method that provides these dependencies.

Highlights

Support

Configuration

  • [#6192]: Support for environmental variables that control the config in the form of KCFG_SECTION_KEY has been added. E.g. setting KCFG_KIVY_LOG_LEVEL=warning in the environment is the same as calling Config.set(“kivy”, “log_level”, “warning”) or setting the log_level in the kivy section of the config to warning. Note that underscores are not allowed in the section names.

  • Any key set this will way will take precedence on the loaded config.ini file. Support for this can be disabled by setting the enviornmental variable KIVY_NO_ENV_CONFIG=1 and the environment will not be read for configuration options.

KV lang

  • [#6257]: A new KV-Python integration event that fires when all the KV rules of the widget has been applied, on_kv_post, has been added to the Widget class. This event fires for a widget when all the KV rules it participates in has been applied and ids has been initialized. Binding to this event will let you execute code for your widget without having to schedule the code for the next clock cycle.

  • Similarly, a new apply_class_lang_rules method was added to Widget that is called in order to apply the KV rules of that widget class. Inheriting and overwriting that method will give you the oppertunity to execute code before any KV rules are applied.

Garden

Other

  • [#6186]: Live resizing has been added for desktop platforms that use the SDL2 window backend.

Deprecated

  • [#6313]: Pygame has been deprecated. We urge users who have been using pygame to try SDL2 and our other providers. If there are any reasons why Pygame is used instead of SDL2 please let us know so we can fix them.

  • Deprecation warnings have also been added to everything that has been deprecated in the past.

Breaking changes

  • [#6095]: Changed the Android version to use App.user_data_dir for the configuration and added a missing dot to the config file name.

  • [#5340]: Removed DropDown.dismiss in on_touch_down so it is only dismissed in on_touch_up.

  • [#5990, #6169]: We now use pytest to run our tests rather than nose.
