+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.  
+This may affect plugin.xml files and config.xml files that use edit-config, 
and make it so plugins that use edit-config will not be able to be compatible 
with both Android 6.x and Android 7.x.  To fix this issue, please do the 
following in your XML files: 
+<!-- An existing config.xml -->
+<edit-config file="AndroidManifest.xml" target="/manifest/application" 
+<!-- needs to change to -->
+<edit-config file="app/src/main/AndroidManifest.xml" 
target="/manifest/application" mode="merge">
+## 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 Activity
+ * 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
+## Curated Changelog

`package.json` so we can install plugins

default app assets
+* [CB-12835]( add a Context

`cdvVersionCodeForceAbiDigit` flag to the template build.gradle that appends 0

+* [CB-12291]( (android) Add 
x86_64, arm64 and armeabi architecture flavors

multiple apks (different product flavors)
+* [CB-13558]( Upgrading the

support multiple builders based on project structure
+* [CB-11244]( Changing 
directory creation, will most likely hide this behind a flag for the next

pending feedback
+* Adding the Studio Builder to build a project based on **Android** Studio, 
and deleting Ant, since Google does not support Ant Builds anymore. Sorry!
