    +title:  "Cordova Android 6.2.0 Released!"
    +categories: announcements
    +tags: news releases
    +We are happy to announce that `Cordova Android 6.2.0` has been released! 
    +This release has fixed issues introduced by the **Android SDK Tools 25.3.1** release.
**Google** dropped support for the `android` binary, so `cordova-android` has now adopted
support for the `avdmanager` and `sdkmanager` binaries. We have also taken the opportunity
to rewrite how we use gradle on the users system.
    +This release also adds support for the `<resource-file>` element in `config.xml`
which copies specified files during a `cordova prepare`. This allows providing arbitrary files
such as special notification-sized icons, or API configuration JSON files. 
    +To upgrade:
    +    npm install -g cordova
    +    cd my_project
    +    cordova platform update android@6.2.0
    +To add it explicitly:
    +    cordova platform add android@6.2.0
    +This release will have to be explicitly added until the upcoming `cordova@7` release,
where it will be pinned as the default android platform.
    +## What's new in Android
    +* [CB-12614]( Adding headers to tests
    +* [CB-8978]( Prepare copy `resource-files`
from `config.xml`
    +* [CB-12605]( Fix a requirements check
failure on **Windows**
    +* [CB-12595]( This should find an **Android
Studio** installation and use the sweet gradle center found inside
    +* [CB-12546]( leverage `avdmanager` if
`android` warns it is no longer useful, which happens in **Android SDK Tools 25.3.1**. Explicitly
set the `CWD` of the spawned emulator process to workaround a recent google android sdk bug.
Rename `android_sdk_version.js` to `android_sdk.js`, to better reflect its contents. Have
`create.js` copy over the `android_sdk_version` batch file.
    +* [CB-12524]( Fix for missing gradle template
error. This now fetches the template from inside of the **Android Studio** directory, and
falls back to a locally installed Gradle instance
    --- End diff --
    Explicitly state that Gradle or Android Studio are required in the blog post.  This is
a change, since we used to just require the Android SDK
