After installing the Studio version I exported and uploaded an app to the Google play Store and received this error:

Your app currently targets API level 26 and must target at least API level 28 to ensure it is built on the latest APIs optimized for security and performance.

From August 2019, new apps must target at least Android 9.0 (API level 28).
From November 2019, app updates must target Android 9.0 (API level 28).


The highest Android Version available in the export is 8 (API 26)

Also this warning was displayed

Upgrade to new permission model
Warning:
Users that currently have APK with version code 2, which targets SDK 22 or lower, will be eligible to upgrade to this APK. However, once users upgrade to this APK, they will be unable to upgrade to APKs that target SDK 22 or lower.
Tip:
If this is an intended change, then ensure that all future updates for the users that upgrade to this APK target SDK 23 or higher.


As a commercial app developer with several apps about to go live on the store... and August is only days away, can this problem receive some attention please.

I was hoping the new Studio version would have the latest API 28 version in-built....

When will this issue be resolved?

The best and quickest way to attention bugs using agk studio is https://github.com/TheGameCreators/AGK-Studio/issues
Posting on the foroum they may or may not notice and any time spent reading forum posts is time they could be further developing

Hi Lee,

Thanks for your report. We too have commercial apps and will be ensuring both AppGameKit Classic and AppGameKit Studio are updated to support API28.

I will talk to my team about it today and get back to you.

Hi

I know the export and upload to store is a simple quick process, it is simply the August 1st deadline that is concerning.

Any update after talking to your team?

Thanks

It is August 1st here in Australia and the deadline day is now past for our apps to be updated on the google play store to meet the requirement for the API 28 requirement.

AppGameKit still hasn't been updated.

Keeping the API updates current needs to be a priority for TGC.

As a commercial developer this is not acceptable.

Explaining to clients that the tools I use are not current and it is 'out of my hands' is not part of my business plan.

As much as I like developing with AppGameKit, I will start looking at alternate products with a more pro-active support team for my lower priority app development.
