Android Maven Plugin 4.4.1 Released

It has been a while since the last release of the Android Maven Plugin, and things like holidays and setting up a new computer got into the way. But now I am all up and running on a Kubuntu VM for my development. So much better than using OSX! I am glad to be back in Linux land for all my development. Even if it is on a VM running on a OSX. Thanks to Oracle and VirtualBox that is possible. And there were a LOT of contributions since the 4.3.0 release and I ran into some trouble with 4.4.0 so here you have the changelog for the shiny, new 4.4.1 release.

So without further ado – the Android Maven Plugin team is pleased to announce the release of version 4.4.1 of the plugin.
