The first weeks

Unfortunately the developers had to deal with a not fully implemented preview-SDK (initially released build: 'm3-rc20'), where even some keyparts of the SDK were poorly documented. The lack of documentation leaded to an explosion of the Android-Developer-Group within the Google-Groups. Sooner or later one had to respect the statement from Google:

"If it is not documented it is not meant to work yet."

Many developers did not realize that fact that the first SDK released were first-looks or developer-previews, where changes in the API had to be awaited.

Another annoying bug was the choppy emulator-sound, which was said fixed with the release of build 'm3-rc37a' about 4 weeks later, but still happened on some setups up to m5.
