Google Project Treble will allow manufacturers to more quickly release updates for Android
Google introduced the development, called Project Treble, which should help manufacturers to more quickly release updates for Android. Acceleration is expected to be achieved through modularity.
The modularity will allow you to split the OS frame and the low-level implementation, in significant part provided by the manufacturer of the hardware platform. Between themselves, they will be linked by a «provider interface» (Vendor Interface, VI). As a result, the frame OS can be changed independently of the low-level implementation.
To ensure compatibility with low-level implementation with future versions of the OS, provided by checking with a test Suite Vendor Test Suite (VTS), just as with tests Compatibility Test Suite (CTS) tests application.
The first modular version of the Android OS will be the Android O, which will be released this year.
