Android build fails after upgrade to NS 4.1


I had successfully upgraded my project to NS 4.0.2, later ran tns doctor, and saw that 4.1 was available. So, I upgraded NS, platforms, plugins, etc, so that TNS doctor runs clean. Now, when I build on android, I get this error:

Failed to build plugin nativescript-google-maps-sdk :
Error: Command ./gradlew failed with exit code 1 Error output:

FAILURE: Build failed with an exception.

* What went wrong:
Could not resolve all files for configuration ':releaseCompileClasspath'.
> Could not find common.jar (android.arch.core:common:1.0.0).
  Searched in the following locations:

* Try:
Run with --stacktrace option to get the stack trace. Run with --info or --debug option to get more log output. Run with --scan to get full insights.

I’m guessing that perhaps I need to update my version of java, but the instructions I find don’t match what I see on my Mac (ie., there is no Java Control Panel on System Preferences). At this point I’m searched out. Anyone have any hints?


After more searching, I’ve found this issue which addresses the problem:

It appears the nativescript-google-maps.sdk plugin does not support NS 4.1.
