About a week ago, Google released a fairly major update to the Play Store with version 4.3.10. The update brought combined update notifications, the new Recently updated section of My apps, and a bunch of other tweaks. Today, a minor update with version 4.3.11 is rolling out. As always, you can download and install it manually using one of the links below.
And a few earlier ones:
- [Update: APK Download] Google Play Store v5.8 Rolling Out With Hamburger-Arrow Morphing Animation
- Google Play Store Updated To 5.6.6 With Layout Changes And Possible Groundwork For Kids' Accounts [APK Download And Mini-Teardown]
- [Update: 5.5.12] Play Store 5.5 Brings A Spiffy Circular Animation To Page Transitions (TV Shows Only) And Popular Opinion Review Blurbs [APK Download]
- Play Store 5.4 Makes The Notification Bar Transparent On App Pages [APK Download]
As I stated earlier, 4.3.11 is a minor update to 4.3.10. I don't believe it fixes the Package File Invalid error, but then again, I believe it's a server issue in the first place.
Update: Google resolved the Package File Invalid issue, so it's clear that it was indeed independent of the Play Store version.
Having torn down the APK, the changes are:
- Updated plural translations for the following locales: bg, es-rUS, fr, id, in, ja, ko, ms, pt, pt-rPT, ro, ru, sk, sl, th, tl, tr, vi, zh-rCN
- Minor changes to the SearchAdapter and PlayTabContainer. I can't tell what these changes are exactly, but they have something to do with item counts, query suggestions, and layout width. Probably bug fixes.
That is all, folks. Unfortunately, there's nothing else fun going on here.
