Forging Titanium Episode 17: Android, Meet V8

This week on "Forging Titanium" we'll be taking a closer look at the recently announced 1.8.0.1 continuous integration build of the Titanium Mobile SDK. The reason this build is such a hot subject is that it is the first to allow Titanium developers to have access to the V8 Javascript engine as an Android runtime. In short, V8 will potentially bring tremendous performance improvements to your Android apps without any intervention on your part.

It's a very exciting time for Titanium Android developers. Don't miss this screencast if you want to join in on the fun!

### Episode Highlights

* Find out where to get the 1.8.0.1 CI build
