python-for-android 0.6 released

We’ve just officially released python-for-android 0.6. The new version can
be downloaded via pip, or will be used by buildozer automatically in
new installations. This release contains about 130 new commits from
14 different contributors. Thanks to everyone involved!

python-for-android is a
packaging tool for turning Python scripts and apps into Android
APKs. It was originally created for use with the Kivy graphical
, but now supports multiple kinds
of Python app including Kivy, PySDL2, a webview interface with Flask
or other webserver backend, plain Python scripts without a GUI, or other
possibilities such as Python builds for use in other applications.

As planned following the release of python-for-android 0.5, the new
version includes some relatively major changes and improvements. In
particular, python-for-android should now work with all recent
versions of the Android SDK and NDK. On the SDK side this means
python-for-android now uses gradle if available, although this doesn’t
require any changes to the configuration on the user side.

For full instructions and further information, see the
python-for-android documentation.
