Google ends support, development for Eclipse Android Developer Tools (ADT)
Google has finally departed from the way in which it developed apps for its open source platform by ending its support and stopping development work for the Eclipse ADT. Instead, the search giant is now focusing on Android Studio, which debuted as the official IDE for the Android ecosystem back in May 2013.
The new development happened following the arrival of Android
Studio 2.2.2 last month.
“There has never been a better time to switch to Android Studio and experience the improvements we’ve made to the Android development workflow,” wrote Jamal Eason, product manager for Android, Google, in a blog post.
