Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-12914) Drop Support for Android JellyBean
Date Sun, 17 Sep 2017 19:07:02 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CB-12914?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16169385#comment-16169385

Andres Zsogon commented on CB-12914:
------------------------------------

*Exactly who and why has decided to drop support for any Android API before 19?* Is that person
aware that at least 8% of the Android devices out there will be rendered obsolete? Does he
even know that Android 4.1 and 4.2 devices are still being manufactured, shipped and sold
around the world as we speak?

> In cordova-android 7.0.0 we will be dropping support for any Android API level before
19 (Android KitKat).
> We should update the default tempate to indicate the minSdkLevel is 19 and check for
any conditional code that checks for API level less than 19 and adds any special cases.
