Hello Everyone,

We've made an update to MOTODEV Studio for Android.This update provides support for the latest JIL and OPhone SDKs; fixes the recently reported zipalign problem; and fixes several smaller bugs. The new release is provided only as an Eclipse update that can be installed with MOTODEV Studio 1.1.0. Release notes, installation instructions, and the 1.1.0 installer are available on the MOTODEV download site.

Accessing the Update

Before accessing the update, check a few things first. Go to "Window->Preferences->Install/Update->Available Software Sites" and ensure that there is a site named "MOTODEV Studio for Android Updates" and that it is enabled. Also, if you are working behind a proxy, you will need to enter the proxy information in the preference panel named "General->Network Connections". Mac users, the Preferences screen is on the "MOTODEV Studio" menu. While in this preference screen, you should test your network connection by pressing the "Test Connection" button.

To check for updates, choose "Help->Check for Updates". The MOTODEV Studio update site uses the HTTPS protocol and requires a password, so you will need to supply your MOTODEV user name and password. Fortunately, if you have a secure machine, you need only enter this information once and choose the "Save Password" check box. When the update is ready, you will see it mentioned in the updates window. The update is several megabytes in size and should not take more than a few minutes to install.

NOTES:

If you see a message about operations being blocked, do not be alarmed--this is the Eclipse update manager doing its work and the warning message is more severe than the condition. Give the update manager a minute or two in order to do its work and the updates should install properly.

If you are developing JIL widgets, please review the release notes carefully as some of the workflows for using the SDK have changed.

Once you've installed the update, you will need to restart MOTODEV Studio.

If you have any problems with the update or other questions or comments about MOTODEV Studio for Android, please post your feedback in the MOTODEV Studio Discussion board.

Thank you for using MOTODEV Studio for Android.
