Android NDK Revision 8 Adds MIPS Architecture Support

Google has just released Android Native Development Kit Revision 8, the Android SDK that allows developers to reuse C/C++ code. This version adds support for MIPS architecture and fixes a few bugs.

Here’s the changelog of the new features and most important bug fixes:

  • Added support for the MIPS ABI, which allows you to generate machine code that runs on compatible MIPS-based Android devices. Major features for MIPS include MIPS-specific toolchains, system headers, libraries and debugging support. For more details regarding MIPS support, see docs/CPU-MIPS.htmlin the NDK package.
  • Fixed a typo in GAbi++ implementation.
  • Fixed an issue in which make-standalone-toolchain.sh fails to copy libsupc++.*.

You can download Android NDK version 8 to develop native apps for MIPS or take advantage of the new bug fixes.

Previously, MIPS provided the Android NDK on their own website, but this version might be phased out, as MIPS support is now part of  the official Android NDK.
