+## What's new in Android
+
+This release adds significant functionality, and also introduces a number
+of breaking changes.  Some of the changes to the code base will be of
+particular interest to third party webview plugin developers.
+
+#### Major Changes ####
+* Primary bridge is the EVAL_BRIDGE, which tells the WebView to execute JS directly.  This
is more stable than the ONLINE_EVENT bridge
+* Full Support for Android Nougat (API 24)
+* Ice Cream Sandwich Support has been deprecated.  Minimum Supported Android Version is Jellybean
(API 16/ Android 4.1)
+* Plugin Installation now CLEANS the build directory, this speeds up gradle build times and
allows for CLI develoment to be more predictable
+
+Changes For Third-Party WebView Developers:
+* executeJavascript method added and is an abstract method that must be implemented
+* the EVAL_BRIDGE must be added to the WebView
+
+
+#### Curated Changes from the Git Commit Logs, check release notes for a more complete list

+* [CB-11935](https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CB-11935) Does a best-effort attempt to
