Android Compile error when upgrade to JUCE 4.1


I try to upgrade my application from JUCE 4.02 to JUCE 4.1. After getting all the latest files from GitHub, my application was able to build and work well in Mac, Window, iOS device. When I try to build for Android using command line "ant", I got the following compile error.

Is there something I missed that I need to do when upgrading to 4.1?

Ah, Timur sometimes gets carried away and goes into C++11 mode.. Thanks, we'll check that.


C++11 shouldn't be a problem for Android... I've used it in my Android project. It might just need to have the necessary part of the library included more explicitly. 


Thanks for the help. Will wait for further advice on how to compile it.


Ah, I think it's simply missing #include <memory> for the std::unique_ptr.

Android Studio didn't have a problem with that, but apparently ant does.

Should be fixed now, please update to the newest tip.


Many Thanks! That solved the compile issue and all compile goes well. 


But one more problem at the AndroidManifest.xml file at the end of the build.

Hi eddie, I can't reproduce this problem here on my Mac. Are you on Linux? (and if yes, what distro/version?)

Also, nowadays the recommended way to build for Android is using Android Studio, and not ant. Did you try that?
