SDK for Android 4.1 is now available

Google released the Android 4.1 SDK today and it is now available for download. Included with the SDK are revised versions of SDK Tools (20.1.1) and NDK revision 8b. The new tools will let developers publish code up to API level 16 using Jelly Bean APIs. As usual, the SDK is available for Windows, Mac and Linux platforms.  The SDK and related tools can be installed via an existing installation of the SDK or one can head over to the Android Developers’ web site.

Nick Butcher, an Android engineer who announced the release on the Android Developers blog, also provided some hints and recommendations to improve the level of polish and professional presentation for new Jelly Bean apps. The advice is provided as a way to help developers get a jump start on app development that goes beyond just working, especially since this will likely be developers’ first exposure to Jelly Bean. The tips and tricks are geared toward the Google Nexus 7, but should translate to other devices over time.

Follow the source link to read up on Butcher’s suggestions and to access the SDK on the developers’ web site.
