I just noticed in the Aleph One forums that toxicsham apparently created an Alpha release Android port after the Version 1.3rc1 release but before the releases I indicated above. The forum discussion is here: https://www.pfhorums.com/viewtopic.php?f=22&t=54135
The Version 0.1.0 Android port is on GitHub: https://github.com/daniele-rapagnani/alephone-android

Aleph One 1.4

@treellama

Note: This release is not network compatible with Aleph One 1.3 and earlier.

Changes:

Adds support for Lua ephemera: optional scripted effects like precipitation or gore, that can be turned on and off without affecting saved games, films, and net games
Adds a new "Editor" mode that integrates better with Weland for seamless visual mode editing
Adds new high frame rate interpolation. Choose 30 fps for authentic classic play, 60 fps or 120 fps capped, or unlimited fps
Adds many new Lua API functions. See Lua.html for details
Adds support for weapon hot keys. Hot keys 1-9 switch weapons, but can be overridden by Lua scripts; hot keys 10-12 are reserved for Lua scripts
Restores some retro/nostalgia features in the software renderer: every-other-line mode, and 8-bit color
MML/Lua can now set the maximum inventory on a per-difficulty level. This should add versatility for balancing difficulty in new scenarios
