    Can someone please tell me where I can find information about the compose artifacts like ui-tooling or ui-tooling-preview or other sub artifacts which are part of the big ones. Unfortunately they are not advertised under https://developer.android.com/jetpack/androidx/releases/compose I haven't used Compose for a while so I'm a bit outdated

    Thanks. Is this the only option or are there any other places with additional information?

    If you look at the left navigation menu, you should see all the android libraries, and navigating to them will allow you to look at specific components in that package

    Yeah I was aware of the reference page. I currently found this, which has a slightly better overview: https://androidx.tech/artifacts/compose.ui/ui/

    To answer the specific question,
    ui-tooling
    ,
    ui-tooling-data
    , and
    ui-tooling-preview
    provide information for Compose dev tools and IDEs. For example, they provide APIs for
    @Preview
    to work within Android Studio. IIRC, you shouldn't need to depend on them in your app
    For module specific questions, the package summary listed are good, also the "Description" on google maven - https://maven.google.com/web/index.html?q=compose.ui#androidx.compose.ui:ui-tooling-preview:1.1.0-alpha02
