Subject: [guardian-dev] Orbot 15.2.0 RC 1 is out!
Date: Fri, 28 Oct 2016 09:13:11 -0700

A culmination of work done since March, has resulted in a
stable-enough-for-jazz RC 1 release of Orbot v15.2. This is the first RC
using our new Gradle-based project, which we hope to even further refine
into various useful modules.

We've also redesigned the user interface to be even simpler for new
users, yet still have all the exciting options for the old timers. Along
with this, we are now shipping on ARM only, SDK16+ release, reducing the
app download size to 7MB. We will be released x86 and MIPS builds
shortly, as well. We are considering our strategy for supporting older
devices, in particular Android 2.3, or at least 4.0/SDK-14, and up

The build has been pushed to Google Play, and is available as an APK for
direct download. We will update our F-Droid repository shortly, as
