@prographodeveloper, I think you answered your own question.

 

Because the armeabi-v7a binaries run just about anywhere and there are so few mips devices, there isn't a lot of motivation to spend engineering time on this when there are other priorities that the community will benefit more from.

The Native build makes libcorona.so plus a number of other libraries, however it only makes the armeabi-v7a versions of those libraries.

 

What about arm64-v8a, armeabi, mips (mips64), x86 (x86_64)

According to this: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/33228158/android-architecture-usage

 

If it's arm64-v8a it can use armeabi-v7a

 

armeabi is no longer supported

 

x86 and x86_64 can emulate armeabi-v7a

 

and there are so few mips / mips64 devices that they are not worth bothering with.

 

If anyone knows different pls let me know.
