Whiteboard

UDTC 0.1 is now out and support Android Studio, Android eclipse (ADT) and Eclipse luna.

Tests worked as they

Long term plan will be to place environments in to a docker image which can be easily added, upgraded and removed. This will enable us to tests as well the exact whole stack to validate it before pushing the update, through a controlled environment, to our users.
