Kotlin.coroutines vs kotlinx.coroutines


#1

I am trying to apply Coroutines to an Android codebase, as described here.

I have been reading the official Coroutine guide, but didn’t see a reference to Continuation and related functions. On searching, I found another official guide for coroutines.

Why are there 2 coroutine guides - one for kotlin and another for kotlinx? I see a kotin.coroutines.experimental package, and kotlinx.coroutine.experimental package - both of them having Continuation related functions, while Continuation is not documented in the kotlinx coroutine guide. Is it okay to mix both kotlin and kotlinx packages in one codebase?

My bad, I should have looked in the language reference for the answer.
