Android SDK updated

New user interface introduced

The Android software developer's kit (SDK) has been updated with a new user interface and new developer tools, among other changes.

A blog entry by Jason Chen, a developer advocate working with the Open Handset Alliance and Google, says the update, called m5-rc14, includes a new user interface as well as a means for developers to create layout animations for their Android applications. Changes to geocoding and media-player coding are also part of the new SDK.

Android is a project of the Open Handset Alliance, a group of more than 30 companies headed by Google to provide an open operating system and related functions for wireless devices.
