Subject RE: Deprecation Wars: ICS vs Gingerbread
Date Wed, 22 Apr 2015 19:18:58 GMT
I still see minSdkVersion = 10 (GINGERBREAD) in platform template. Should it be replaced w/
14 (ICE_CREAM_SANDWICH) in this case and also updated in platform docs? -  per docs we still
support Gingerbread.

Steve is currently working on docs update so this is perfect time to change this.

Joe, perhaps that can be part of the Tools Release blog post? Steve put out a link to the
draft in another thread.
