This update is very similar to previous one - NBAndroid is following the work done by Android SDK team and the latest update (1.226) uses Gradle plugin for android development 0.8. This version also requires Gradle 1.10 which is the latest and greatest of released Gradle versions.
Needless to say that this update was the smoothest so far and makes me feel that the Gradle support is getting more mature and stable.
There are a few bugs and RFE filled recently in our bugtracker that I am going to address soon. In addition to that it is likely that NBAndroid will drop support for NetBeans 7.2. It gives us a chance to migrate to Java 7 and use some new improvements in NetBeans APIs.
