Unable to use the new Color Preference

See original GitHub issue

Hi, I couldn’t get the new Color preference working.

After including in my gradle file the compile '' line, I get

Error:Failed to resolve: xpece-android-support-preference:support-preference:unspecified

The issue is I currently have to manually fix the dependency from



when releasing the library.

The first time (0.6.0) i didn’t know at all. The second time (0.7.0) I fixed only the version and didn’t notice the groupId being wrong.

I uploaded fixed .pom file (maven metadata) but there’s a million caches on the way to your Android Studio so you probably won’t pick it up. For now you’re stuck with @aar suffix and manually importing as well.

Thank you for letting me know and let’s pray I get it right in next release.

Still fails for me. Error message:

Error:Failed to resolve: xpece-android-support-preference:support-preference:[0.7.0,0.8.0)

Adding the @aar sufix solves the issue.

I don’t know if this have something to do, but I have upgraded to Android Studio 2 yesterday, and to make sure I have the latest support library (I’ve seen the comment // depends on preference-v7 r23.3.0 in readme) I kept “Android Support Repository, rev 30” and removed “Android Support Library 23.2.1” in SDK Manager.

I’ve done this after asking asking in G+ ( why I couldn’t see the 23.3.0 release in SDK Manager. The docs say “Note: If you’re developing with Android Studio, select and install the Android Support Repository item instead”.
