The top priority for Android is a major rewrite of the display handler in order to be compatible with the "new" action bar concept. After that, we'll see :) Feel free to bump this thread from time to time...

Support for some action bar elements would be really cool!

And wouldn't support for action bar elements open the door for a kind of multi window support - i.e. forcing a "window" to a tab?

No idea, it all depends on how complicated this is to do on the Java side. Keep in mind that Hollywood's Android backend is really quirky because it has to jump back and forth between Java and C code all the time. But Hollywood 7.2 will definitely bring on some improvements for Android. I'll also try to add some functionality that allows to call from Hollywood code into Java code for all Hollywood APK Compiler users. This should open up quite some nice new possibilities.

- New [Android]: Added support for multiple displays; as soon as more than one display is open, Hollywood will put an item into the menu bar for every display that is open so that you can conveniently switch to this display; if you don't want to have a list of all open displays in the menu bar, set the new "NoCyclerMenu" tag to TRUE (either in CreateDisplay() or in @DISPLAY); you can programmatically bring a hidden display to the front by calling either ShowWindow() or ActivateWindow()
