Hi all, I'm working on an upcoming release for a new app, and was wondering if anyone has any recommendations of the latest stable AIR version we should be using.
Our previous apps from last summer were still built using 126.96.36.199, which has been stable for us on both iOS and Android with low ANR/crash rates. I believe we can still use this version for iOS until April 2021 when they start requiring iOS 14 SDK, though for Google Play we would now need to target API 29. I've heard some developers had used older AIR SDKs and just set the targetSdkVersion to 29 even though it was built with 28, though I'm not sure if this is generally a good practice or not and if it would cause unintended behavior on some devices.
The latest 188.8.131.525 should support iOS 14 SDK as well as Android API 29, though I was curious if anyone has been using this newest AIR version and could weigh in on how stable it is to be used for production (I know the previous .300 introduced some crashing issues on Android, not sure if those have all been addressed here.) We've rarely jumped into the absolute latest version, and with Harman tied up with supporting Flash EOL customers I don't know how quick they'd be able to address any issues that might pop up in this latest release.
I've heard other developers had rolled back to .259 after the crashes in .300 for Android, so I suppose that could be an option at least for Android if it's more stable than .345.
If anyone is currently using any of those options live in production and wouldn't mind sharing their experience, I'd greatly appreciate some suggestions!
