Google's Android dev team have released version 17 of the Android software development kit, which also brings an updated Eclipse plugin.
Some of the key improvements and new features include:
As our title suggests, one of the sexiest new features is a big update to the Android emulator - contributions to AOSP from Intel mean that the emulator now runs at near native speed on Windows and Mac OS X. Webcam support and sensor emulation has been added, and there is experimental support for Multi-Touch input using a connected Android device.
The Support Library brings a lot of new improvements in areas such as design, layout, and notifications. For a heap more info, check out Google's Android blog post here.
