(To Google devs)Using the IM plugin class

 I would like to use the IM plugin class thats included in the Android
source, but it is not SDK friendly. I am happy to submit the revisions
required, but I don't really know what to change. It requires access
to the non-api android.im tree and UID sharing with android.uid.im.
I'm stumped, but I'd really like to implement this. Is it better to
just to submit an official revision?

 This isn't currently supported in the SDK.  I don't know what plans there
are to have it in the SDK, if any.  Certainly we aren't going to have
anything in the SDK that requires you get a shared user ID with a system

Note: please don't send private questions to me, as I don't have time to
provide private support.  All such questions should be posted on public
forums, where I and others can see and answer them.

 Have there been any updates to (the roadmap for) IM since this

1. Drawing many map overlays efficiently


I have many pins I'd like to display on a map. I first tried adding
each as an Overlay, but this is way too slow, as each overlay tries
drawing itself even though it may not be visible within the screen

So the question is, is one overlay instance supposed to be used per
pin? Or is there some more efficient data structure to use with it?

If we are supposed to use Overlay for this, I figured I could keep the
"mercator" unit of each of my overlay cached, then recalculate the
mercator unit of the top-left, bottom-right points of the map view to
figure if an overlay should be drawn or not, which will probably be
much faster.

I'm guessing there's already some built-in way to draw a large number
of Overlays, as google is known for fast algorithms and efficiency?


2. Beginning

Hi, I'm new here. I've got some experience in programming (never imnd
it's very poor) and I want to become an Android developer. Could You
please tell me step-by-step how to start? I bet I would manage to
write a programme, but I certainly got lost with this all installation
files. Could You please write down all programmes and all settings
changes required to start writing applications? Thank You in advance.
