Android Lollipop Changes

Applications targeting this or a later release will get these new changes in behavior:
  • Context.bindService now requires an explicit Intent, and will throw an exception if given an implicit Intent.
  • Notification.Builder will not have the colors of their various notification elements adjusted to better match the new material design look.
  • Message will validate that a message is not currently in use when it is recycled.
  • Hardware accelerated drawing in windows will be enabled automatically in most places.
  • Spinner throws an exception if attaching an adapter with more than one item type.
  • If the app is a launcher, the launcher will be available to the user even when they are using corporate profiles (which requires that the app use LauncherApps to correctly populate its apps UI).
