Android developers who don’t like surprises were offered something resembling an apology by Google the other day. Google’s open source and public sector programs manager talked about the way that new versions of the Android operating system can pop up without warning.
As reported by Cade Metz, Chris DiBona said, “It can be a little hard for developers, and sometimes, they have to adapt.”
He then said with regards to developer roadmaps, “We could do better.”
Obviously, this doesn’t equate to either an “I’m very sorry” or a promise to give everyone a six-month heads up about every little tweak.
Still, it looks like Google might give Android developers a little more consideration in the future.
