Andriod Market Changes Oct 2010

Android Market Changes
The Android Market is become better with these additional changes.

Support for a recent changes feature, which allows
you to add notes about changes specific to the newest version of your
application. You are able to submit these from the Developer Console,
similar to descriptions. In the Market app, these notes will appear
under the app description as “Recent changes.”

 
There is now a ‘draft upload’ capability for application
updates. This feature enables you to edit your app listing and upload a
new version without affecting the version live in Market. Your app
listing edits will not change your live listing until you select
“Publish.”<!>
Support for larger promotional graphics to
showcase your application. In addition to the currently required app
screenshot, you will be required to upload one “feature” graphic.
Supported promotional assets will now include:
 – A “feature” graphic, landscape aspect ratio, 1024 x 500 (required).
 – A high-res icon, 512 x 512 (required)..  The Android icon design guidelines located at http://developer.android.com/guide/practices/ui_guidelines/icon_design.html apply.
 – 2 screen shots, 320w x 480h, 480w x 854h, or 480w x 800h, increasing to 8 screen shots in the future (1 required).
 – A link for a promotional video hosted on YouTube (optional).

These changes will provide more visibility about the Applications and its changes between the versions helping the end-user to make an informed decision before they buy or upgrade. Likewise this will help the developers to promote it better.
