[android-developers] Re: Renderscript Deprecated

It was always a poorly thought out API (design was interesting, but strategically it made no sense), so not surprised it's being deprecated.

The latest reference documentation for Renderscript shows half of the API now being deprecated. It appears to be directed toward the graphics functionality. I just built an entire 3D rendering engine on this API and am concerned that it is deprecated so soon after being released. What is it being replaced with?! The developer guides and release notes don't say anything about this change. The graphics section was removed from the developer guide, which now only describes the compute functionality. I only see it in the reference docs.
