Android SDK 2.0, Release 1 is available!

The first release version of Android SDK 2.0 is out - in time before the first Android 2.0 phones are to be officially published. Now, if HTC would just release the official Eclair update image for my HTC Hero.

Android 2.0 introduces several new significant features, such as Quick Contacts API, a proper Bluetooth 2.1 API (finally), search functionality for SMS/MMS messages, improved camera API, HTML 5.0 support, revamped graphics API with better hardware acceleration support (good new for game developers), and improved virtual keyboard ... nice. A complete list of new and improved features can be found from this Android 2.0 Platform Highlights document.
