    I really dont understand how you can release a version that still misses basic functionality. It is of course good to add new functionality. But you really need to look at basic functionality as well.
    Still we cannot use multi-gesture to zoom in/out in the map on Android devices (only works on iOS).
    And since Android supported this since version 2.2 then the question is, why is this not supported by ArcGIS?
    As it is now, customers with Android devices is locked out from this, since basic functionality wont work!
    I really hope for a quick fix on this!

    Just noticed that, with API v3.0, all samples regarding the BasemapGallery do not work anymore.

      The “Basemap Gallery – Manual” and “Basemap Gallery – Dropdown Button” samples are not working. We’ll get them fixed ASAP. The other three Basemap Gallery samples are working.

    Along with creating the download version we patch the CDN version last night to fix the issue with the Basemap Gallery sample and an issue regarding hiding/showing layers and panning.
