hey guys 👋 do you have any tips/reading material on how to sync-up compose and kotlin libraries in android? I'm trying to update to material3 for compose, but my build's crashing. I'm not sure what other library(ies) I should update and to what version. Any help?

I have found that using the bom helps ease the pain somewhat (

@Travis Griggs haven't given BOM a chance because it was not clear to me how stable it was. I suppose it's OK for production, then?
@Peter I know this map, the problem seems to be not only between kotlin vs compose, but between compose libraries themselves. Or more specifically, material3

BOM is just a set of versions, that work well together. More stable, than trying to specify all versions on your own. Any yes, it includes M3 versions.
