Google Today, Google has released the software development kit for Android 2.0, the company's mobile operating system. The SDK gives away all the new features, and there's indeed quite a lot in this one. The biggest new feature is multitouch support, but there's a whole lot more.

It sounds like the new version of Android addresses one of my main software-related gripes (had an HTC Dream for testing a few months ago): interfaces that didn't fit the screen. I expect to scroll in webpages and documents, but not within preference panels and the UI of the applications themselves. And many times, there was only one or two lines "beneath the scroll" - a small detail, but it contributed to an overall feeling that the UI was un-polished.

I realize that's inevitable with a handheld OS designed to run on different screen sizes - it looks like they've found a fairly clever solution.
