 This question has been left w/o an answer before.
My case: the new version has it's package name changed (domain name
switch) so I obviously can't upgrade. Created a new app under the same
name and uploaded the new version under it. Published it.
Now, how do I delete the obsolete one? Should I file a support request

 Un-publish the old one?

 Sure I've done this already. But why let it stick around?

 I believe it's related to the policy of consumers always being
entitled to free upgrades of your application. If there was a way of
completely deleting an application then you could delete before
publishing an upgrade, thereby forcing people to pay for the upgrade.

1. Are you localizing an app? Do you want to be?

We have been working on some documentation to help developers localize their
applications, in anticipation of Android devices becoming available in more
countries.  (You might have seen some information on this via an email to
Android Market developers, recently.)

We bumped into a couple issues with the SDK tools, but rather than wait for
the next release we wanted to get a draft version of this documentation out
there, so developers can get started.  I've placed the information here:

That document is a work in progress, but it should get you started.
Eventually, once we've tweaked the SDK tools and the text has gone through a
more formal review, it will be promoted to the core documentation.

Happy hacking!

2. Resources causing IndexOutOfBoundsException


I've started seeing a lot of weird crashes from users' phones
regarding an IndexOutOfBoundsException around loading String
resources.  One example is reproduced below.  This began with Android
1.5, build 147201.

Any ideas what is going on?
