Happy Solstice everyone (Winter and Summer)!

The MOTODEV tools team has a present for all you good Android developers. Fresh from the oven (or off the barbeque for our antipodean friends) is a fresh release of MOTODEV Studio.

In this release, we’ve added several new items :

  • Support for the ADT plugins (version 16.0.1) that were released last Friday
  • The automatic translation feature now supports the Google Translate v2 API
  • Generated database classes now follow the Java naming standards
  • Automatic generation of code that saves and restores the app state
  • New code snippets

We’re doing this release today in a restricted manner (as an update only) because the holidays are upon us. Many of the MOTODEV team members will be on holiday beginning this Friday and at different times through the next 12 days. While we will be monitoring the discussion boards , we won’t be back to our full staff level until January 3rd. We’re confident that MOTODEV Studio 3.1 will be fine, but we won’t be as quick to answer questions as we would be at other times of the year.

Most users should continue to use Studio 3.0.x until after the New Year. Users who want access to the latest plugins, including ADT 16, the way to access this release is via the MOTODEV menu. Choose MOTODEV -> Update MOTODEV Studio as shown below.

We’ll have the standalone installers and a plugin archive ready to go when we return from the break. We also have something new that I think you’ll enjoy.

On behalf of the MOTODEV tools team, I would like to thank you all for downloading and using MOTODEV Studio this year. We’ve had a lot of great feedback from everyone and we’ve enjoyed working with you.

Best wishes for joyful New Year and a prosperous and happy 2012.
