Chaquopy version 6.3.0

Posted on


  • Android Gradle plugin version 3.5 is now supported.
  • Pre-compile Python code to .pyc format by default, so it doesn’t have to be compiled on the device. This significantly improves app startup speed and storage usage.
  • Remove the extractPackages setting, as data files are now extracted automatically. See the documentation for details.
  • Change data file location from cache to files directory, to prevent the user from clearing it while the app is running.
  • Hide importer frames in stack traces, unless the exception originated from the importer itself.
  • Fix another metadata parsing issue, this one affecting the package astroid.
  • Fix “has no DT_SONAME” warning (#112).
