 Hi all,

excuse the doutbless newbie question .. but a quick scan of the FAQ
didn't turn up a pertinent answer.

I've downloaded 2 version of the dev kit now: 

When I download and unpack, and look at RELEASE_NOTES.html in the top
level directory there's a big screaming message that goes like:

"Android 1.1 SDK, Release 1
February 2009

This is NOT the current Android SDK release.
Download the current Android SDK
The sections below provide an overview of the SDK package.

For more information on this SDK release, read the Release Notes."

Is this message just incorrect and needs fixing, or are the files I'm
downloading with 1.5 in the title really just 1.1 dev kits?

yours confusedly..

1. Handling Resolutions with the Canvas

I'm currently working on a 2D application using the canvas, and I
curious how other developers would handle this issue.

The application has a background that then has bitmaps drawn on top of
it in very specific locations.  Obviously with screen resolutions this
becomes a bit problematic.  First, I'm assuming I'll need to create a
new background for each phone resolution I want to support (or I can
allow the SDK to resize it for me?)

The bigger question is I have 5-10 bitmaps I need to place on very
specific locations on top of the background, they will animate and do
various things so they are not part of the background..  Since the
resolution changes affect the placement of these items, I'm curious on
the best way to handle the placement?

I know with certain assets you can append -320x240 for instance to the
filename and the sdk will pull the asset that fits the resolutions.  I
thought maybe i could create an array asset in the xml folder, but was
unsure if this would work with the extension method.. then I could
just create an xml file of positions per screen resolution.

The other option is just to code a object of some sort to store all
the positions at each resolutions... I have a feeling I'm missing
something to make this far easier so hoping someone here might have
some insight?  Since the scaling of the background will change both
the x and y position of the items on top of it, I'm not sure I can
just easily compute their placement?


2. Anyone else notice more frequent GC in 1.6?

Cool ... in this particular case I am glad its not me ... otherwise I might
not touch any of the code again!
