Final Android 3.0 SDK for Developers Released

Feb. 24, 2011, 11:09 a.m.
The full SDK for Android 3.0 is out! This Android version is specially for tablets. You are free to develop with the new API Level 11. Also the SDK tools has been updated. The ADT plugin for Eclipse.

The highlights are:


  • UI Builder improvements in the ADT Plugin


    • New Palette with categories and rendering previews.

    • More accurate rendering of layouts to more faithfully reflect how the layout will look on devices, including rendering status and title bars to more accurately reflect screen space actually available to applications.

    • Selection-sensitive action bars to manipulate View properties.

    • Zoom improvements (fit to view, persistent scale, keyboard access).

    • Improved support for layouts, as well as layouts with gesture overlays.


  • Traceview integration for easier profiling from ADT.

  • Tools for using the Renderscript graphics engine: the SDK tools now compiles .rs files into Java Programming Language files and native bytecode.
