Application Statistics have been added to Android Market

Application Statistics is a new type of dashboard in the Market Developer Console that gives an overview of the installation performance of apps. It provides charts and tables that summarize each app’s active installation trend over time, as well as its distribution across key dimensions such as Android platform versions, devices, user countries, and user languages. For additional context, the dashboard also shows the comparable aggregate distribution for all app installs from Android Market (numbering in the billions). Developers could use this data to observe how their app performs relative to the rest of Market or decide what to develop next.

Static Fragments library support Pre-Honeycomb Android Platforms

Android SDK 3.0 provide Fragments API for Honeycomb. A Fragment represents a behavior or a portion of user interface in an Activity. You can combine multiple fragments in a single activity to build a multi-pane UI and reuse a fragment in multiple activities. You can think of a fragment as a modular section of an activity, which has its own lifecycle, receives its own input events, and which you can add or remove while the activity is running.

Now Google have released a static library that exposes the same Fragments API (as well as the new LoaderManager and a few other classes) so that applications compatible with Android 1.6 or later can use fragments to create tablet-compatible user interfaces.

This library is available through the SDK Updater; it’s called "Android Compatibility package".
