ActionBar drop-down menu

Hi guys, I'm writing an Android application similar to the blog reader app in Ben's second course. I need to put a drop-down menu on the ActionBar and I'm kinda lost in the Android Developer site. Where can I find some information about that?

Ben Jakuben : is there any plan to add more courses to the Android library? Something more advanced (ie. custom list adapters, working with objects and parse XML) would be cool! ;)

Can you provide a screenshot on what you "consider" a drop down menu?

Alessandro, I'm about to update the Roadmap with the next Android project (due this fall) and plan on covering everything you mentioned as soon as I can. Some will be covered in the next course!
