Intel and Unity Technologies are collaborating to bring native support for Android apps built with the gaming-oriented Unity platform to Intel processors.
Millions of developers using the gaming-focused Unity cross-platform development framework “can now bring native Android games and other apps to Intel-based mobile devices,” states a news release from Intel and Unity Technologies. Unity is adding Android support for all of Intel’s current and future processors including the Core and Atom processors. Unity will test and support tablets and handsets based on Intel’s Bay Trail, Clovertrail+, and Merrifield Atom processors before moving on to Core processors. Unity, which appears to be the first gaming engine to offer native Android-on-x86 support, is no stranger to x86, having already supported Windows apps on x86.
The Wine development release 1.7.25 is now available.
What's new in this release (see below for details):
- Implementation of the packet capture library.
- A few more DirectWrite functions.
- Improvements in HTML table support.
- More VBScript math functions.
- Various bug fixes.
