Android 1.6 SDK Now Available

Welcome to API Level 4!
The Android 1.6 SDK is now available for download. Many of the highlights are good for users and manufacturers, such as a Market update and support for CDMA hardware. What's good for users is good for developers. Also included is a new gestures framework and a tool for creating gestures, multi-lingual and accent text-to-speech, and better search capabilities.
The API changes list is relatively small; this is an incremental upgrade with some nice features, but not a sweeping change by any means.
The update is set to be on handsets as early as October, according to the release notes.
