Some big element announcements!

The iron-dropdown element, and paper-menu-button have both been updated to 1.0.0.

https://github.com/polymerelements/iron-dropdown
https://github.com/PolymerElements/paper-menu-button

The paper-dropdown-menu element is still being ported, should have updates on that soon.

A technique worth noting, to create a paper-dropdown like element is to use an iron-dropdown and place a paper-material element inside of it. You can check out the implementation for paper-menu-button for an example of this, and we're also adding a little blurb to the readme of iron-dropdown to explain it.

14,000 commits from 400 contributors in one year -- glad we started it :-)  Now ready for production use, be that on GCP or on your own cluster.

Android Support Library 22.2.1 available now
This release is focused on product quality and stability, with a healthy dose of bugs and edge cases now fixed, particularly for users of the Android Design Library (http://goo.gl/ZgmA99) introduced in version 22.2.0.

You’ll also find a number of API improvements as well:
- FloatingActionButton’s new show() and hide() methods to allow triggering the appropriate animations programmatically
- Snackbar gains LENGTH_INDEFINITE for continuing to show a Snackbar until it is dismissed or another Snackbar is shown
- TabLayout now allows you to retrieve the currently selected tab via getSelectedTabPosition()
- NotificationCompat.MediaStyle now uses a fully fluent API, allowing chaining methods together
- RecyclerView’s SortedList now has convenience methods to batch insert items

Please continue to file any Support Library bugs at https://goo.gl/QHIwpH

The phone in your pocket is an amazing, fluid, multi-functional tool. When it comes to talking to other devices, such as your TV or laptop, the user experience drops off sharply. Bill Buxton speaks eloquently on the subject, describing three stages of high tech evolution: Device works: feature completeness and stability Device flows: good user experience Many devices work together But connecting devices is a pain and we have been...
