Android API Differences between 16 and 17 : Part-1

The overall difference between API Levels 16 and 17 is approximately 1.26% only.

The table below lists the numbers of program elements (packages, classes, constructors, methods, and fields) that were added, changed, or removed. The table includes only the highest-level program elements — that is, if a class with two methods was added, the number of methods added does not include those two methods, but the number of classes added does include that class.
