Android Jetpack Compose Reaches General Availability

Jetpack Compose, Android’s toolkit for programmatically defining application UI via composable functions, has reached a stable V.10 release point. Alongside the announcement of general availability, Jetpack also gains a new preview feature. 

The Android Developer Blog hosted an announcement that noted:

“The new Compose Preview, available in Android Studio Arctic Fox allows you to see your Composables in different states, light and dark theme, or different font scalings, all at the same time, making component development easier, without having to deploy a whole app to your device. Enhanced with live editing of literals, you can see updates without recompiling your project”
