This week, we look at how LiveData and Glide might work with Jetpack Compose and how we align our text in a row.
The biggest news is that Compose support was removed from Android Studio 4.0 Beta 1 and added to Android Studio 4.1 Alpha 1. If you are relying on an Android Studio 4.0 canary release for your Compose work, be careful about what you upgrade to!

...And One More Thing
The Android Studio moves with respect to Jetpack Compose (added to 4.1, removed from 4.0) just add more confusion to the mix. It is understandable that the Studio team might not want to support features tied to early-stage technologies like Compose in a stable Studio release. However, it would be nice if the Compose team had their own communications on the topic, rather than us having to interpret what this means solely from what the Studio team has said (which isn’t much).
