OPEN SOURCE SOFTWARE HOUSE Google has updated its Android software development kit (SDK) to match the latest version of Android 2.2.
While the SDK for Android 2.2 was released last month, since that time Google has been busy pushing out new builds of Android 2.2, its Linux based operating system for smartphones and other small Internet-connected devices. The latest update couples the SDK to the latest Android 2.2 build, FRF91.
Google is urging all developers to update to the latest version using the SDK manager to maintain feature parity.
Handset manufacturers are in the midst of announcing upgrades to Android 2.2, though at present only Google's Nexus One has received the update. Android 2.2 brings with it several new features including wired and wireless tethering but, above all, support for Adobe's Flash software.
For developers however, Google's update cycle means that they have to keep on their toes in order not to fall afoul of any changes under the surface.
Users can rejoice in the fact that Google's commitment to serve developers with all they require should mean more in the way of features. µ
