Earlier, we told you guys Google issued an upgrade to Honeycomb. The upgrade brought the version number to 3.1 and it added some pretty cool things. (My favorite was the addition of native resizable widgets, but other highlights include full USB host support, inline HTML5 playback (with videos embedded using the <video> tag) in Android’s native browser and a ton more. (A lot of it is low level stuff that you developer types will want to take a gander at.) Google has now published the full changelog over at their developer site for all to consume. Those who want to take advantage of the new changes for their own apps can download the updated SDK (revision 11) here.
In related news, the Motorola XOOM on Verizon was the first device announced to be getting the upgrade and it actually rolled out for users today. Many of you aren’t seeing it, unfortunately (including our very own Rob Jackson), but Pete Alphonso has done what he does best – intercepted the URL that will allow you to download the build (HMJ37) straight from Google’s servers. It’s a signed, legit build straight from Verizon/Google/Moto and can be flashed as such, but we aren’t exactly sure how to go about that at the moment. Trust me when I say that when we know, you’ll know. [Droid-Life]
