Following the actual announcement of Android Lollipop earlier this week, Google has now released its official SDK to developers interested in writing apps for the new OS. The release comes following the Android L SDK preview that was released earlier this year at Google I/O (which was only for the Nexus 5 and 7).

In Google’s announcement post for the new SDK, the company is urging developers to make sure their new material-y designed apps–which can also take advantage of as many as 5,000 new APIs–will be ready for the launch of Lollipop in just about two weeks.

The recently-announced Nexus 6, Nexus 9, and Nexus Player will be the first devices to run the new operating system, and Google plans to roll it out to other supported Nexus devices around the time of the new devices’ launch. This includes Nexus 4, 5, 7 (’12 & ’13), and Nexus 10.
