Noteworthy Items

The ability to target Android N has arrived! Our Android team has been working hard to accelerate the addition of support and features for Android N to allow us to move on to Android O support, which is coming soon. With this release, you can target Android API 25 and make use of some N features such as split screen and bundle notifications. Users can now also deploy to Android O devices. So we could make use of O features on older Android OS versions, Android SDK Build-tools 26 is required for Android builds using Titanium SDK 6.2.0.

Xcode 9 beta 6 is currently supported, along with the implementation of some key iOS 11 features in the SDK core, or through modules.
