DO NOT MERGE - Merge Android 13 Bug: 242648940 Merged-In: Ica480bef236603c59fb593056ea70a0414f9218f Change-Id: Ia3820ad86bce405e71bc4131fcad64d9633f5e5f
Building the Chromium-based WebView in AOSP is no longer supported or required. WebView can now be built entirely from the Chromium source code.
Docs on how to build WebView from Chromium for use in AOSP are available here: https://chromium.googlesource.com/chromium/src/+/HEAD/android_webview/docs/aosp-system-integration.md
For questions about building WebView, please contact our mailing list: https://groups.google.com/a/chromium.org/forum/#!forum/android-webview-dev
The prebuilt APKs provided here are built from Chromium upstream sources; you should check the commit message to see the version number for a particular prebuilt. The version number is formatted like “12.0.3456.789” and matches the tag in the Chromium repository it was built from.
If you want to build your own WebView, you should generally build the latest stable version, not the version published here: newer versions have important security and stability improvements.
