Using the Android NDK? Please read and double check your linked libraries if you aren't sure.
 
PSA: Linking against platform libraries not in the NDK could break your app

Android is moving from OpenSSL to BoringSSL in the AOSP (https://goo.gl/BZOaBc).  If your app links against platform libraries (such as libcrypto.so) that aren’t in the Android NDK, it’ll likely break in a future platform release.

The move to BoringSSL will increase the consistency amongst Android, Chrome, and other products.  To find out more about BoringSSL and its motivations, see Adam Langley’s blog post (https://goo.gl/pFyZVI).  For most developers this should be an invisible change.  However some apps mistakenly link against the platform libcrypto.so or libssl.so, which isn’t part of the Android NDK API.  If you’re using the Android NDK in your app, you must not link against any library that isn’t part of the Android NDK API.  These libraries are not public API, and may change or break without notice across releases and devices. In addition, you may expose yourself to security vulnerabilities. Instead, you should modify your native code to call the Java cryptography APIs via JNI or to statically link against a cryptography library of your choice.

Check out the new 'Reports' tab in the Play Developer console. Reports can be downloaded directly or programatically.
 
We're adding statistics on your apps and games to the data you can export from Google Play, along with financial information, crash data, and user reviews. You can now access your data programmatically and integrate into into your workflow or access it via a new Reports section in the Developer Console.

Learn more in the blog post below.

Searching back through the Android Developers Blog archive for something and one of +Dick Wall's original posts comes up, it's almost nostalgic and is still relevant... 'in a lightweight and CPU efficient manner'

How excellent, the ability to re-share other people's public posts into a Collection is very handy. My first collection is a private one call 'Read Later'... my second should be public and called 'Android Tips'.
 
Introducing Google+ Collections, a new way to group your posts by topic

Our happiest Google+ users are those who connect with others around shared interests and passions. So we set out to give people a place to express the things they love. Today, we’re announcing Google+ Collections, a new way to group your posts by topic.

Every collection is a focused set of posts on a particular topic, providing an easy way for you to organize all the things you’re into. Each collection can be shared publicly, privately, or with a custom set of people. Once you create your first collection, your profile will display a new tab where other people can find and follow your collections.

Posts in collections you follow will appear in your Home stream, with a link to easily jump right into the collection so you can get to similar content from that author. Collections give you a great way to find more of the stuff you love from the people you follow.

Collections is available on Android and the web, and iOS is coming later. For Android users, make sure to update your Google+ app to get access to Collections.

For inspiration on interesting topics, check out our Featured Collections page here: g.co/collections

Create your collections today and share what you love.

If you have questions then also be sure to check out our Help Center content http://goo.gl/zyIVMH; if you still can’t find an answer then please post your question in the Collections subcategory. 

Best,
Moritz & Claire

Today we’re introducing a new program called Designed for Families, which allows developers to designate their apps and games as family-friendly. Participating apps will be eligible for upcoming family-focused experiences on Google Play that will help parents discover great, age-appropriate content and make more informed choices. Read more on the blog.
