A lot has changed since XE5 introduced support for the Android platform back in 2013. At the time it supported Android versions 2.33/Gingerbread through 4.4/KitKat, which covered the vast majority of Android devices available at the time. Now with the 10.3/Rio release, it supports Android versions through 9/Pie, including the new security model introduced in version 6/Marshmallow. And whatever happened to those NEON instructions? If all of these sweets are giving you a toothache, and you just want to target Android today, then join us to learn the latest about the Android platform, what is supported, and how to take advantage of it all with your favorite development tools!
Also new in 10.3/Rio is expanded platform native control support for the Android platform. We’ll take a look at what this means to Android development and how to take advantage of them and other FireMonkey GUI templates in your user interface design.
