Sneak Peek: Android SDK, NDK and Device Support in Delphi

A juicy sneak peek of the Android support in the SDK Manager and Project manager being developed in the beta. This video shows the updates to the SDK Manager to support the Android SDK & NDK. These can be installed and configured automatically, or you can install them on your own and configure them here. Then it shows how easy it is to add Android as a target. The project manager will automatically detect any Android Emulators or devices with USB debugging enabled and provide them as an option.

    I was told a while ago that you were targeting August-Sepember for release, I’m going to make a guess that that estimate was no where near accurate? Any updated timelines?

  4. Jim McKeeth says:

    The mobile roadmap was recently updated. That is as much as I can tell you right now.
    But you may be able to get on the beta still.

  7. Aquellos que adquirimos radstudio xe4 no tenemos maneras de actualizar a xe5 que no sea muy costoso eso es lo malo de embarcadero ya que no hace 6 meses han sacado rad studio xe4 y ya estan anunciando xe5 no se vale

    — Google Translation —

    Those who have not acquired radstudio xe4 ways to upgrade to xe5 expensive than that is bad for landing as not six months ago rad studio have released and are already announcing xe4 xe5 not worth

  8. Jim McKeeth says:

    @Carlos: Delphi is moving really fast right now. The RAD Studio Roadmap showed two releases this year. (it is updated, but still on schedule from the last one).

    Hopefully most developers are buying Support & Maintenance with their Delphi licenses so they will get the new releases for free.

    where can i change the value of the %minSdkVersion% in AndroidManifest.xml useing the IDE, i want to set it for android:minSdkVersion=”17? instead of android:minSdkVersion=”9?

  11. Jim McKeeth says:

    @Ray: the best solution I’ve found is to edit the Manifest template and replace %minSdkVersion% with 17.
