[erlang-questions] Erlang/OTP 17.0 and android

download the .apk from
http://erlang.ernovation.com/files/Erlang4Android17.0.apk (It is no

intended to be used with ScriptingLayer4Android (SL4), as before.
You can download the zip file with Erlang itself directly for use
outside SL4A from http://erlang.ernovation.com/files/erlang_17.0.zip The
apk will download and install this for you...

introduced recently, otherwise it works as before. It is an interface to
the API of SL4A which you can find here:
