GNU/Linux developer Arne Exton informs us today, September 15, 2016, about the availability of a new build of his RaspAnd project that lets users run Google's Linux-based Android mobile operating system on Raspberry Pi single-board computers.
RaspAnd Build 160915 is out now and it's a remastered Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow operating system engineered to run on the latest Raspberry Pi 2 Model B and Raspberry Pi 3 Model B SBCs (Single-board computers), and it appears to be faster and more responsive than previous versions.
"This new version has about the same pre-installed apps and features as in RaspAnd Marshmallow Build 160717, but it looks better, runs faster and is more responsive," says Arne Exton. "You can also run this build using a Raspberry Pi 2 computer, but for best performance you really should use a Raspberry Pi 3."
