We strongly recommend using Brother Print SDK for Android™ v4.x.x because:

  1. 1) v3.x.x SDK APIs will continue to be supported and improved *ONLY* in v4 SDK, unless there is a special reason to update the v3 SDK.
  2. 2) v4.x.x SDK is backward compatible to v3.x.x SDK APIs, for now. No existing code changes are required immediately.
  3. 3) v4.x.x SDK added *NEW* APIs that are designed to be more suitable for cross-platform developers.
  4. 4) v4.x.x SDK added other new useful features that are not available in v3 SDK.
  5. 5) In the future, new printer models will *ONLY* be supported by the new v4 APIs.
  6. 6) We would like to encourage developers to begin migrating your existing code to the new v4 APIs as soon as possible, at your own pace.
