Hi everyone,

We've released our latest update to the Wikipedia Android app[1][2], available now on the Google Play store. This is mostly a maintenance release that contains a few bug fixes and minor design updates since our previous version.

More notably, as we announced earlier[3], this will be the last version of the app that supports older Android devices, specifically devices older than Ice Cream Sandwich MR1 (i.e. older than version 4.0.3, API 15).  As we continue to release future versions of the app, these older devices will still be able to install our app from the Play Store, but the version that they receive will be frozen at today's release.  Newer devices will, of course, continue to receive the latest version of the app, as before.
