The new edition, if you can follow developer speak, adds a few new features including: a revamped user interface, added support for geo-coding, the ability to create layout animations for applications, and support for additional media codecs like iMelody, MIDI, OGG Vorbis, OTA, RTTL/RTX, and XMF.

Finally, there’s also an updated eclipse plug-in with a new Android manifest editor. A list of the differences between the previous SDK and the new one can be found on the m5 changes website.

Read on to see a few screen shots of the new UI.

So what’s this really mean for the end-user? Android is back on track after a short delay, even though Google had originally planned to delay Android for a few weeks.

We installed the new UI to grab a few screen shots, take a look at a few of them below:
