As part of the move to separate interpreters from the Android Scripting Environment (ASE) project, it has been renamed to Scripting Layer for Android (SL4A). SL4A will focus on providing:
- a simple, very high level API layer on top of Android's own APIs,
- on-device developer tools (script editing, launching, debugging, etc.),
- sharing scripts as APKs (i.e. typical Android applications),
- and standards for adding new interpreters.
We've been very busy getting everything ready for SL4A release r0 and we are excited to share it with everyone as soon as possible.
