Google trumpets next-gen Android NDK features

12 JAN 2011

Google highlighted a number of features which will be supported in future versions of its Android Native Development Kit, including the fact that “you can now build an entire Android application without writing a single line of Java.” This will be enabled by new native APIs, and will be supported by devices running Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) or later. In a post on the Android Developers’ Blog, it was noted that “this [NDK] release is specifically designed to help game developers continue to rock; with Gingerbread and the NDK r5, it should now be very easy to bring games written entirely in C and C++ to Android with minimal modification.”
