+title:  "Cordova Android 7.0.0 Released!"
+categories: announcements
+tags: news releases
+We are happy to announce that `Cordova Android 7.0.0` has been released! 
+With this release, we have changed the default project structure for Android projects.  People
who currently use the CLI and treat everything in the platforms directory as a 
+build artifact should not notice a difference, however this a major breaking change for people
creating standalone Cordova Android projects.  This also means that the locations
+of files have changed and have been brought in line to the structure used by Android Studio.
+## Major Changes include:
+ * Support for Java 1.8 language features in Cordova Plugins
+ * CordovaInterface now has a Context getter so that contexts can be retrieved without an
+ * Cordova can now build for x86_64, arm64 and armeabi architecture when building plugins
that use the NDK
+ * The minimum Android API version supported is now API Level 19
+ * Due to the directory structure change, we no longer support in-line upgrading, bringing
us in line with iOS
+ * ANT builds are no longer supported and the functionality has been removed.
+To upgrade:
+    npm install -g cordova
+    cd my_project
+    cordova platform remove android
+    cordova platform add android@7.0.0
+To add it explicitly:
+    cordova platform add android@7.0.0
