Update to ArcGIS Runtime SDK for Android: 10.2.6-2

We are excited to provide another quick turnaround on an update to our recent 10.2.6 release of the Android SDK.  This is bug fix only release and there is no new functionality included with this minor but important fix.

To apply this fix, update your build.gradle file with the following dependency:

dependencies {
        compile 'com.esri.arcgis.android:arcgis-android:10.2.6-2'

If you’ve downloaded the local v10.2.6 download and use the local AAR library, you can get the updated AAR lib module in the 10.2.6-2 download file.  All other SDK components are the same, so no need to download if you use the AAR lib in the preferred method from our Bintray maven URL.

All of our samples have been updated to use our latest version and developer instructions on how to sync your local fork of the samples with our public repository.  We invite you to collaborate with the community and the Esri development team on GeoNet & our GitHub samples and maps-app repos.
