Kotlin Android Extensions is deprecated, which means that using Kotlin synthetics for view binding is no longer supported.

I remember when I was first shifting from Java to Kotlin, the discovery of Kotlin Android Synthetics was such a soothing experience. The need of no longer calling findViewById() for every single view was such a relief. From there on after, it was just Kotlin Synthetics all the way. Just directly referring the views by their XML IDs and you were all set.

Alas, not all good things last long, and just like that, we have to say our goodbyes to Kotlin…
