Android cupcake(杯子蛋糕)

與上一篇發的 Firmware 1.5 不同的是,這版為穩定版,Firmware 1.5 是主線的版本,所以 bugs 會比較多,目前穩定版的發展還算不錯,穩定性也夠,國外已經有人裝在 ADP1 上面了,目前就等 Google 釋出新的 SDK 與 Android cupcake。詳細更新如下

cupcake(杯子蛋糕) 下一個穩定版的代號,中英對照更新清單,大略翻譯一下,有些地方院長看不懂就沒翻了,歸納重點如下:新增虛擬鍵盤與 IMF、瀏覽器快五倍、瀏覽器可剪下貼上、相機可錄影、藍芽支援 A2DP 與 AVRCP、SDK 將可以外掛開發者的 Add-ons。

Applications

  • MMS
    • New features
      • Save attachments from MMS.(另存 MMS 的附件)
    • Significant bug fixes
      • Faster conversation list scrolling(調整對話清單的流暢度)
  • Email(Android 除了 Gmail 外,還支援 POP3 與 IMAP,這邊是講 POP3 與 IMAP 的部份)
    • Significant bug fixes
      • Accounts that were marked "never check" are not auto-checked.
      • Date & time displayed using user preference (e.g. 24 hr vs. AM/PM).(根據使用者的設定顯示不同的時間格式)
      • cc: displayed in message view.(增加副本顯示)
      • Relaxed POP3 parser rules so it works with non-compliant email servers.
      • Password quoting bugs in IMAP.  Makes it work for users with funny chars in their password (e.g. spaces).(放寬 IMAP 的密碼輸入規則,使用者可輸入特殊的符號例如:空白鍵)
      • Various sources of errors in auto & manual account setup.
      • Improvements on how we report various connection errors. Makes it much easier for user to diagnose failed account setups.
      • New-mail notifications for POP3 accounts.(POP3 收信將有新的通知符號or畫面)
      • Properly recover from POP3 connection failures, so that the next connection has a chance of working properly.(POP3 連線失敗回覆的機制)

      • New accounts are now set to check every 15 minutes (instead of defaulting to "never").(新帳號「check」設定為每 15 分鍾)
      • Fixed a bug causing approximately 1 in 25 outbound messages to freeze up the IMAP connection (to a Gmail based server) when transferred to the Sent folder.  This broke the entire connection so new messages could not be downloaded either.(修正送信的錯誤,可能造成 IMAP「freeze up」造成新信收不下來)

To copy with the trackball, press and hold the shift key, move the cursor to the selection start, click the trackball, and move the trackball to the extend the selection. Releasing the shift key, or clicking the trackball a second time, copies the text.(支援 copy/paste 的功能,可透過鍵盤上的「shift」鍵選取文字,也可以透過「trackball」,圖片可以透過螢幕點選複製)

    • Input method framework, for soft keyboards and other on-screen input methods.  Includes new APIs for applications to interact with input methods, and the ability for third party developers to write their own input methods.(IMF 輸入法,提供「soft keyboards(虛擬鍵盤)」並且允許第三方開發者開發輸入法)

    • Fixed issues with saving state in the view hierarchy, so that you can properly subclass from something like TextView and create your own state that inherits from that provided by TextView.
    • TextView now implements onKeyMultiple(), so that flinging the trackball will result in accelerated scrolling. This required some changes to movement methods, and included some improvements to the acceleration computed when flinging.
    • Framework bug fixes in PackageManager to share/un-share permissions for applications with shared uid's.(套件管理修正)
    • Significant rework of Settings->ManageApplications Performance and UI enhancements.(重寫管理 App 的部份)

The old constants in Settings.System have been deprecated.  It is possible to read settings values via Settings.System using the deprecated constants. However, attempts to modify these settings via Settings.System will result in a log message and the setting value will be left unchanged.(「android.provider.Settings.System」移到「android.provider.Settings.Secure」且只有「system software」可以改變其設定值)
    • Many bug fixes in the media framework(修正多媒體「framework」)


Bluetooth

  • New features
    • Support for A2DP & AVRCP profiles.(支援 A2DP 與 AVRCP
  • Significant bug fixes
    • First connection after pairing always fails on many carkits.(修正與「carkits」連結的錯誤)

Radio & Telephony

    • Green CALL button is no longer a shortcut for "add a new call". This has been a rarely used feature and confusing if triggered accidentally.(通話鍵不再是「add a new call」的捷徑,預防誤觸通話鍵)
    • Longer in-call screen timeout when using the speakerphone.(加長來電的「timeout」時間,當使用「speakerphone」的時候)
    • "Show dialpad" / "Hide dialpad" item added to the in-call menu, to make it easier to discover the DTMF dialpad.(來電時增加「"Show dialpad" / "Hide dialpad"」的功能)
  • Significant bug fixes
    • An obscure case where the Phone UI could cause the device to not go to sleep on its own. This would happen if user bails out of the in-call screen by hitting HOME, followed by the call disconnecting remotely.
    • Don't allow a single tap to open the in-call dialpad. It is now required to touch and drag it.  This makes it much harder to accidentally open the dialpad by touching the screen with your face.

      • emulator system images, skins, and hardware configuration to let developers test their applications on their Android implementation(「emulator 」可以掛上不同的映像檔、skins、硬體設定檔,使開發者可以針對目標裝置做測試)
This is work-in-progress. Please note that the latest Android SDK (Android 1.0 SDK, Release 2) is not compatible with the SDK plugin in the new branch, please use ADT 0.8.0. SDK add-on support is planned for future SDK release. (目前「Android 1.0 SDK, Release 2」尚未支援「SDK plugin」未來推出新的「SDK release」)
 

                   
Build System

  • New features
    • The functions in build/envsetup.sh should be much more useful(編譯功能新增「build/envsetup.sh」)
