This Google I/O has been rich in announces and new and nice features.
So everybody is speaking about :
* flash : This is really nice, and a big plus for Android ( no, I didn't mention the Fruit Phone... )
* performances : x2 - x5 for free is always good for developers. It also seems the general OS has been improved in this direction.
* Installation on SD card ( the size of applications will now explode !! )
* Cloud to device messenging : this is like the push function in the Fruit Phone, but one step further, as it use the intent system, and can launch some application from the Cloud...
* Application Backup Data : This is nice. Some developers were already doing it on their side, but having it included in the SDK is really a big plus.
But there is a little new feature that I was waiting for for such a long time, and that is totally unexpected :
The project Libraries !!
Project libraries are basically, Android libraries, with code and resources included.
This is awesome !!

In my case, I have 2 different application for the english and the french version of my game, I will now have only one version !
Here is the thing :
And there is a sample :
