LiveCode only supports Android 4.x and above, and all devices which run
4.x have at the very least an ARMv7 processor - so there isn't any need
for a ARMv6 device build anymore (hence why it has been removed in 9.5).

That would be quite a useful thing to have - perhaps a check-box which
'builds separate APKs' on the standalone settings pane. It could also
do something to derive a new versionCode (they all have to be 
different).
e.g.

     APK-versionCode = S/B-specified-versionCode * 10 + arch-index

    arch-index = 0 (ARMv7), 1 (ARM64), 2 (x86), 3 (x86-64)

That would save having to specify (by hand) several different 
versionCodes
for each build.

Could you file an enhancement request for such an option, and we can see 
what
we can do.

Warmest Regards,

Mark.
