Project Latte: How Microsoft wants to integrate Android apps into Windows 10

Windows 10 may soon be able to run mobile apps designed for Android. Update on the technical details that allow this porting.  Microsoft is working on a software solution that would allow app developers to run their Android apps on Windows 10 with little or no code changes. How? 'Or' What ? By packaging them as an MSIX app package format and allowing developers to submit them to the Microsoft Store. The project is codenamed " Latte ," according to Windows Central, which says it will go into production next year. Microsoft had already tried to put Android applications under Windows 10 with the Astoria project, which has since aborted. The Latte project is probably powered by the Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL). But Microsoft will need to provide its own Android subsystem for Google's OS apps to actually work. Microsoft has announced that the WSL will soon be compatible with GPU acceleration, which should improve the performance of applications runnin

Uemoa: Decline in economic activity in the first quarter of 2020

According to the Bceao's "Quarterly Statistics Bulletin, first quarter 2020", a drop in economic activity is noted. "The pace of economic activity in Uemoa dropped in the first quarter of 2020, against the backdrop of the health crisis linked to Covid-19. The gross domestic product of the UEMOA increased in the first quarter 2020 of 3.3%, on a year, against 6.0% a quarter earlier, "it reads in the document.

Decline in economic activity in the first quarter of 2020

According to the Bceao, the sharp deceleration in economic activity in the Union is mainly marked by the tertiary sector, whose contribution fell by 1.8 percentage points compared to the previous quarter, to stand at 1 , 8 point. The contribution of the secondary sector stood at 0.7 percentage point, down 0.7 percentage point compared to that recorded a quarter earlier.

The primary sector's contribution to growth was 0.9 percentage points, 0.2 points lower than in the fourth quarter of 2019.

The annual inflation rate in the UEMOA stood at 1.3% at the end of March 2020, after -0.5% three months earlier. The rebound in the general price level is mainly due to the "Food" component, whose contribution to total inflation rose from -0.6 percentage points at the end of December 2019 to 0.8 percentage points at the end of March 2020 .




The increase in food prices is mainly observed in Benin, Ivory Coast, Guinea-Bissau and Senegal, in connection with higher prices for fishery products as well as tubers and plantains, linked to the weakness of supply on the markets. In addition, an increase in the prices of cereal products was recorded in the Sahelian countries, notably in Niger, in connection with the drop in production.

Changes in food prices also reflect the effects of the disruption of distribution channels caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.
