Android SDK Updated to Version m5-rc15

Postby plusminus » Tue Mar 04, 2008 10:14 pm

Hello Community,

minutes ago the Google Android Team released an update to their Android SDK – the version is now m5-rc15. With this update, the SDK now includes all of the incremental changes that have been made to the online documentation since m5-rc14 was released in mid-February. In addition to the latest documentation, they've also fixed a security issue involving handling of image files.

Google recommends to install m5-rc15 at your earliest convenience. The update doesn't change any of the Android APIs or introduce any new ones. Eclipse users don't need to update the ADT plug-in either.

Once you've unzipped the file on your machine, you will want to update things like your PATH variable and, if you're using Eclipse, the SDK location setting for ADT (hint: Preferences :arrow: Android).

Any notable difference?

Hi,

Has anyone noticed any notable changes to m5-rc15 SDK since m5-rc14
besides document update and security issue involving handling images?
I thought they fixed eclipse hanging issue, but I got my eclipse to hang
after updating to new SDK...

m5-rc14 was released mid Feburary so I was hoping at least
one more major release well before the deadline for ADC (which is April 14th)
but if they are releasing a such a *minor release early March then
do you think it is safe to assume we don't get any major release
before first phase of ADC?

* I said minor here because I haven't really notice any difference on my project.
However this might not be true for others, especially if you are suffering from the
security issue involving handling images
Don't really understand what "security issue" actually means but oh well...

Hello wataru,

"The update doesn't change any of the Android APIs or introduce any new ones."

yes I'm also a bit disappointed that (as they say) nothing was fixed, except the one bug you mentioned.
At least we've had a fast cycle this time, what is good.

I hope there will be another major update before the ADC, because there are still some annoying (even new) Bugs in m5.

Regards,
