Android++ is now open-source and publicly available via GitHub.

There were a multitude of reasons preventing this move in the past, but thankfully I’m finally able to release the code for version 0.7.x. A lot of you will either be using Visual Studio 2015’s Android support, or weighing up the merits of doing so – but I intend to keep this project alive for as long as I feel it offers a suitable alternative.

Even with Visual Studio 2015 Update 1, Android support still has a long way to go in terms of matching the build performance offered by Android++. This project was designed to help real-world C/C++ projects (mainly in the Games industry), so there are various optimisations and unique approaches that are still of value (and worth sharing).

Please feel free to view the source code, and see if there are any parts of the Android++ that might be worthwhile.
