      Poweramp v3 - Next Beta Release Planned for April 2018   03/14/2018

      As you may be aware, the Poweramp developer has been working hard on an updated material design user interface for Poweramp v3 which required a full ground-up rebuild of the code and is taking some time to get to a beta-test stage. See the forum thread for more details and to discuss, but it is currently hoped that the next Beta Test release will be ready for April 2018.

How to make skin support both 5.0+ and 5.0- android version

2 posts in this topic

Do I need to upload two different APKs in order to support 5.0+ and 5.0- ?

because ant dist-shared only works on 5.0+

And ant dist have problem on 5.0+ when using user's style as parent in some styles.

I notice in skin_custom_rules.XML the different of dist and dist-shared is the --shared-lib aapt manipulator.

Provided that you updated your Android SDK (as described here: http://forum.powerampapp.com/index.php?/topic/5047-poweramp-apiskin-sdk-update-2014-11-15/) and the Poweramp Skin SDK, you can build skin (or update existing skin) to support both cases.


The problem with Lollipop skin handling is that they "reserved" the attribute inheritance, Poweramp skins was using previously. This makes styles derived from other skin styles not possible for Lollipop and all such styles should be manually "un-packed".


We provided example for both cases in skin sdk. You may want to check this file:




and compare it vs this one:
