This is a rather small update, courtesy of a variety of things that fouled up my writing schedule this month. I apologize for the reduced amount of new content and will aim to do better next month.

This update includes a new chapter on animators, including animating fragments (e.g., Gmail-style three-pane navigation). It also adds a short chapter on AdapterViewFlipper to the widget catalog. And, there are the typical array of errata fixes.

If you encounter any problems with this update or your Warescription in general, please contact, and be sure to provide your Warescription user ID.
