Google mania strikes back, everything its google now

And its so true – i was surfing through different blogs and found a user comment at one of the post of Mobile Crunch – Interesting – seems like Google will rule the whole world wide web with in few years –

The post was about Android firmware 1.1 (RC33) patch notes – Google has gone ahead and published the full bug fix/features lists for Firmware 1.1 alongside the updated SDK.

Check after the jump to see what’s gone down.

 

Resolved Issues

* AlarmClock alert now plays audio/vibe directly, rather than through AlarmManager. AlarmClock alert starts playing audio/vibe in its IntentReceiver, rather than on activity start. These changes should prevent alarms from being blocked by modal dialogs.
* Fixes to device sleep.
* Single tap no longer opens the in-call dialpad; users now need to touch and drag it.
* Fixes 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.
* Removes automatic account setup entries that were broken or not testable. Adds minor fixes to a few of the remaining entries. Makes improvements to warning dialogs used for a few special cases.
* Changes default mail checking interval to every 15 minutes (instead of defaulting to “never”).
* Fixes password-quoting bugs in IMAP, so that users can include special characters in passwords (e.g. spaces).
* Fixes various errors in auto and manual account setup
* Improves reporting for various connection errors, making it easier for the user to diagnose failed account setups.
* Fixes new-mail notifications for POP3 accounts.
* Ensures proper auto-checking of accounts marked as “never check”.
* Now displays date and time using user preference (e.g. 24 hr vs. AM/PM).
* Now shows cc: in message view.
* Improves recovery from POP3 connection failures.
* POP3 parser rules loosened, so the application can work with non-compliant email servers.
* Removes green CALL button as a shortcut for “add a new call”.
