    This coming Friday, January 27th, we will be releasing version nb154
    of MIT App Inventor.

    This is a component release, which means that it updates the
    component software used on devices by MIT App Inventor developed
    applications. Most of the changes are bugfixes or updates needed to
    make MIT App Inventor compatible with the latest version of Android.

    There is one new feature, the “ShowListsAsJson” has been added to
    Screen1. This property, when set, will result in list structures being
    displayed in JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) instead of Lisp
    structures. This property is only visible on Screen1, but effects all
    screens.

    By default this new property is not set. However at a future date new
    projects will be created with it set to true (existing projects will
    not be affected).

    Because this is a component release, there will be a new MIT AI2
    Companion released at the same time. The current Companion (version
    2.39) will continue to work, but you will need the newer version
    (currently planned as 2.40) in order to use the “ShowListsAsJson.”

    The release is scheduled for January 27th at 10PM US Eastern Standard
    Time. That is 2017-01-28T03:00:00Z (aka 3AM on Saturday, January 28th,
    UTC).
