Developers -- time to fire up your Android SDK installation and grab the new Android 3.2 SDK. The Android development has let everyone know the update is now available to all.
Here are some of the highlights of Android 3.2:
- Optimizations for a wider range of tablets. A variety of refinements across the system ensure a great user experience on a wider range of tablet devices.
- Compatibility zoom for fixed-sized apps. A new compatibility display mode gives users a new way to view these apps on larger devices. The mode provides a pixel-scaled alternative to the standard UI stretching, for apps that are not designed to run on larger screen sizes.
- Media sync from SD card. On devices that support a removable SD card, users can now load media files directly from the SD card to apps that use them.
- Extended screen support API. For developers who want more precise control over their UI across the range of Android-powered devices, the platform’s screen support API is extended with new resource qualifiers and manifest attributes, to also allow targeting screens by their dimensions.
That's just a small portion of what has been updated, you can find the full release notes over at the Android Developers website found in the source link below.
