Android SDK Security Upgrade Released

android_small_image.jpgA new Android SDK update has been released to fix a minor security issue involving handling of images files. Android SDK version m5-rc15 doesn’t include any new features or changes to the API but it is recommended users upgrade.

The update doesn’t change any of the Android APIs or introduce any new ones. Eclipse users don’t need to update the ADT plug-in either. Once you’ve unzipped the file on your machine, you will want to update things like your PATH variable and, if you’re using Eclipse, the SDK location setting for ADT (hint: Preferences > Android).

If you have yet to upgrade from M3 to M5 you can find the relevant upgrade instructions here
