How to Use Aspose.Words for Android from 17.2.0 Onward

Previous Versions 1.11 and 1.12 were manually divided into two parts: jar and apk in order to limit the number of methods in DEX file. In these versions, we provided our own apk loader to initiate the correct loading of the additional classes.dex file.

Now starting from this release Aspose.Words for Android is delivered as a single JAR file, we have started to reduce the size of Aspose.Words for Android library. Our major concern now is to reduce the number of methods without loss of functionality. We are constantly working on improving the quality and usability of Aspose.Words for Android.
