Google Android 4.1 Jelly Bean was announced for the first time at I/O Conference 2012 three weeks ago. On the same occasion, Google was also upload a sneak peek preview of Jelly Bean SDK into their official blog. Today, they finally come out with the real deal. The final release of Android 4.1 SDK is already available for download now. So, developers, are you ready to pump out some great Jelly Bean apps for us?
If you’ve install the Android SDK before, the new Jelly Bean update should be appear on your SDK manager. First time on developing? Then there is no need to worry guys, you can download it from the direct link here. The news about this release is received from the Google+ statement made last night. Since this is a final release, you might find some different from the preview version that released on at I/O Conference few weeks ago. Here’s what they said about that
“We are pleased to announce that the full SDK for Android 4.1 is now available to developers and can be downloaded through your SDK Manager. You can now develop and publish applications against API level 16 using new Jelly Bean APIs. We are also releasing SDK Tools revision 20.0.1 and NDK revision 8b containing bug fixes only”
It is nice to see that Google has come out with the developers support this fast. Previously, they’ve push the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean to Android Open Source Project (AOSP). This is mean that the ROM developer can start to create their own custom ROM now. CyanogenMod team has manage to release the CyanogenMod 10 ROM with the help from the source code. With the release of this SDK, app developer can experience the Jelly Bean frenzy too! Let’s hope that Google will continue their good performance when providing Android 4.1 update for some smartphone and tablet.
