Google "The Android emulator is a key tool for Android developers in building and testing their apps. As the power and diversity of Android devices has grown quickly, it's been hard for the emulator keep pace. Today we're thrilled to announce several significant improvements to the emulator, including a dramatic performance upgrade and support for a broader range of hardware features, notably sensors and multi-finger input." That sound you're hearing is the collective Android developer base shouting 'about damn time!'.

Where the F$%^ is the download link? It's great to talk about vapor, but without a d/l link, it's just vapor.

Follow the instructions to install the Android SDK from http://developer.android.com/sdk/installing.html and then the updated emulator image will be in the list of components to download.

An update appeared for me. I assume this is revision 18 of the Android SDK Tools? If so it appears that if you have the Android SDK tools already installed, the update just appears.
