So I published that watch face, and it got me thinking…

/cc +Ian Lake because this is all your fault :-P
Android lets you mash apps together. When you do, cool things start to happen.

Anyone who wants to try out Googles solution to the 64k method limit can have a look at https://android.googlesource.com/toolchain/jack/

This seems to be the solution that they will launch in an upcoming update of the Android toolchain.

Haven't tried it out myself yet.

Thinking about the not-so-distant future when all that hard-won experience and knowledge working around all the quirks of ListView will go away, replaced by the newly hard-won experience and knowledge working around all the quirks of RecyclerView, I'm all like...

Here comes the Squad leader, to help your ProGuards
We've all been through the pain of ProGuard breaking your release builds and you've probably been copying your ProGuard config from one project to another carefully. I'm releasing a simple library called Squad leader that hopefully helps a bit with this.

Squad leader provides a @Keep and a @KeepName annotation to signal ProGuard to always keep a class, field or method name or only keep it in the case it's used in your code (in the case of @KeepName).

Secondly, it provides a standard set of ProGuard rules that get automatically applied when you add Squad leader as a dependency to your project. No configuration needed, all through the magic of the Android Gradle plugin.

Currently there are only a couple of configurations for libraries such as Gson, Otto, Butterknife, and for keeping annotated JavascriptInterfaces when you have them + some sane defaults config so that you are able to retrace your obfuscated stack traces when you need to.
If you want to add your favorite library, file an issue, or better yet: send me a pull request.

You can find the Squad leader at https://bitbucket.org/littlerobots/squadleader

tbh, I haven't been keeping many single classes, more entire packages. but this does seem like it has huge potential

We've just released Android Studio 0.8.4 to the canary channel. While the release contains mostly bug fixes, it also contains a new Android specific project view which simplifies the Gradle project structure and Android resources significantly. This generated a lot of interest after our demo at Google I/O, so please give it a try!

For more information, see the full release announcement at

AS 0.8.x is not required to build 'L' preview apps, correct?  After seeing all the issues people are having, I would like to stick with 0.6.x for a bit more.  They can be installed/used side-by-side though?

Okay, maybe it seems to be mostly just user error on their part.  I'll give it a whirl later.

Summary: App developers like us used to consider Android a total pain. A few things have changed that.

Trippy!
 
The ones you're not looking at turn clockwise

Look at either the red dot or the yellow dot.  The circles near that dot will turn counterclockwise.  The ones you're not looking at turn clockwise!

Or: let your eyes bounce back and forth between the two.

Or: look away from both of them.

Puzzle: how does it work?

Today marks the 100th anniversary of the first game played at the corner of Clark & Addison

On the field, the +Chicago Cubs will wear the shirt of the Chi-Feds, the Federal League team that inhabited then-Weeghman Park in 1914 and 1915, and the Diamondbacks will become the Kansas City Packers, the April 23, 1914 opponent, for one day. It’ll be a game to remember, complete with iconic guests, throwback jerseys, giveaways and a whole lot more. 

Learn more about the season-long celebration: http://goo.gl/3ubyTd and share your memories of the Friendly Confines with other fans: http://goo.gl/VcXpyN
