Now, as this book “went to print” on Friday, a new arrival came to the Googleplex, signifying (I assume) a forthcoming Android OS and SDK release. So, there should be a Version 3.3 of this book coming out in the next 3-4 weeks, including updates for that new Android version, plus other improvements.
This is the first book update since the new Warescription site was launched. Those of you with Warescription accounts tied to your Google accounts may encounter problems logging in, claiming that you lack a Warescription. This happened on occasion before the new site cutover but appears to have increased since, perhaps due to an upgraded OpenID gem the Warescription site is using. If you log in, do not have a Warescription, but think you do, contact firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance. Please have patience, as I am traveling to London for Droidcon UK and some training, and so my responses to you may be somewhat delayed.
If you have any ideas, suggestions, complaints, etc. regarding
the book, please join the
