    +## 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-11083]( Fix to deal with custom
frameworks with their own Gradle configuration
    +* [CB-8722](  - Move icons from drawable
to mipmap
    +* [CB-11964](  Call clean after plugin
install and mock it in tests
    +* [CB-11935]( Does a best-effort attempt
to pause any processing that can be paused safely, such as animations and geolocation.
    +* [CB-11640](  Changing requirements check
to ask for Java 8
    +* [CB-11907]( Bumping Gradle to work
with Android Studio 2.2 and the Android Gradle Plugin
    +* [CB-11078]( string for BackgroundColor

    Also, maybe we want to do a pass over these to format them consistently (colon after the
