Google introduced the second beta version of the  Android Q OS. The release of Android Q, which will most likely come under Android 10, is expected in the third quarter of 2019. To evaluate the platform's new features, a beta testing program is offered, within which the experimental branch can be installed and maintained up-to-date through the regular update installation interface (OTA, over-the-air), without the need for manual firmware replacement. Updates are available for Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel 2, Pixel 2 XL, Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL devices.

Changes since the first beta release:

  • Introduced new storage Scoped Storage, providing isolation level for application files. 
  • The concept of "bubbles" has been added to organize simultaneous work with several applications.
  • A new device emulator with folding folding screens has been added to the SDK, which is available in the test release of Android Studio 3.5 in the form of an additional virtual device, presented in versions with screens 7.3 (4.6) and 8 (6.6) inches. 
  • The implementation of shortcuts for sending data and messages (Sharing Shortcuts) has been expanded, allowing you to quickly switch to the sending application.
  • Added MicrophoneDirection API to control audio capture from directional microphones.

The developers of Bisq presented a new version of the decentralized exchange (v1.0).

The project repository on GitHub notes that version 1.0 is the most important milestone in the development of the Bisq platform.

Thus, the new version of the software implements a decentralized autonomous organization mechanism (Bisq DAO). It allows exchange users to directly participate in project management.

For example, those who contribute to the development of Bisq may receive rewards in BSQ tokens. Also, the use of these assets can reduce trade commissions by 90%.

Among other changes - bug fixes, minor improvements to the user interface.
