Over the Christmas holidays Google has integrated the Espresso testing framework into its android built tools and bumped the version to 2.0.

Few months ago I have brushed off dust out of one of my pet projects which I wrote back when I was working on Acision SMS gateway: SMPP SMSC simulator. SMPP is a binary protocol for sending SMS messages. It’s still very much used in Telco so this simulator might be of use to some people.
