 Hi everyone

if you just have a look into the new locales that are added to the new
SDK 1.6, you will notice that among these locales is Arabic

 http://developer.android.com/sdk/android-1.6.html 

but unfortunately, when I tried to run the emulator,I didn't find any
locale supported Arabic.

Could you please give more clarifications about this issue ??

 Disappointed, I was so happy to see Arabic listed in the docs. Any
suggestion on how to get that done? or at least add Arabic fonts to be
able to read Arabic across multiple apps?

 You are right. Arabic letters are all rendered as uniform rectangles,
which is even worse than the slightly-comical way in which the iPhone
renders Arabic.

1. Upgrade to ADT 8.0.1: I knew I shoudn't have done it!

So I finally caved in and updated my laptop from ADT 0.0.7 to ADT
8.0.1.

Eclipse was working fine before the update but now I cannot use the
Layout Editor.  I am getting the error:
NoClassDefFoundError: Could not initialize class:
sun.awt.image.BufImgSurfaceData

I tried googling but I didn't find anyone who encountered the same
error as me.

Any ideas on how I should fix this?


Thanks,

2. Does Android's GPS location provider do a built-in optimization?

how accurate is the data from Android's GPS location provider?

does the device always try to seek a satellite, or does it sometimes
return an optimization of the past locations without querying the
satellites?

if this question is device-specific, i'm asking about HTC Hero, HTC
Desire and Google Nexus One.

thanks
