 First post here! I am new to programming on Android.

I would like to know, when you start Android development, which
version of Android do you usually choose (the latest or v1.5)?

The benefit of testing in the latest I guess would be having the
newest and best APIs (and any bugfixes), whereas the oldest assures
reverse compatibility. (Of course, you can always test in the
simulator and on a few devices). Anyways, when you create apps, what
version do you usually choose?

1. Does this group need renaming?

Hello.

I notice that there's been a bit of controversy in the last couple of
days about off-topic posting on this list. As the list home page says,
it is intended to be a place to "Discuss developing Android
applications using the Android framework". While I find the talk about
the Market and wider issues very interesting, I do think it would be
better placed on the -discuss list, so that this list can be more
focussed on technical issues to do with developing using the SDK.

I wonder if the reason why this list attracts a lot of off-topic stuff
is the name? I suspect many people don't see the description and just
interpret "android-developers" to be for discussion of issues
affecting developers. Perhaps if it was named "android-sdk" (to match
the new android-ndk list), that would improve things?

Apologies for the fact that this post itself is off-topic. :-)
