[Updated] Google to release SDK Update soon ?

Postby plusminus » Sat Feb 02, 2008 12:30 am

Hello Community,

hints that Google is going to release an updated version of their SDK within a few weeks are densifying. Remember that the most recent update was released in early December (14[sup]th[/sup]), more than 6 weeks ago.

Lets start with the announcement form Quang Nguyen in the official Android-Developers-Blog five days ago, according to the Deadline Extension for the Android Developer Challenge where he said:
"... we've made significant updates to the SDK that we'll be releasing in several weeks.".


Additionally to that, one can see the internal SDK-Build-Number in the Android-Online-Documentation which currently shows
Build m3-rc45 - 29 Jan 2008 14:24

The latest downloadable SDK-version is Version m3-rc37a, so there have been at least 8 Builds since the last update. The whole Android-Community is yawing louder and louder for the "forthcoming UI and API enhancements" promised by Nguyen this Monday.

Google definitely needs to dispose the SDK teething problems to create a fertile basis for submissions to the Challenge. Displeasing the developers-community, the creators of the applications Android relies on, could repulse Google in their challenge on the mobile market.

[Update] Dan Morill at the Google Code Days in Munich showing whats next with the Android SDK:

Well, in fact the Android Development kit now doesn't work anymore when downloaded through the update site !!!
(see the build timestamp in https://dl-ssl.google.com/android/eclipse/site.xml) ... The SDK is now considered too old (it looks for an adb in version 1.0.18 whereas the rc37a adb version is only 1.0.17 ...)

The next SDK will probably probably be M5-something according to the check against the SDK version which is done in the Eclipse plugin .......

To be continued ....
