    Google Android L Developer Preview now available - Liliputing (click for full article)

    by Brad Linder - June 26, 2014

    -- Google’s next major version of Android won’t roll out to phones, tablets, and other devices until this fall. But you can start tinkering with the Android L Developer Preview today.


    The software developer kit is now available for download through the Android SDK Manager. And you can grab the factory images of Android L for the Google Nexus 5 and Google Nexus 7 2013 from Google’s developer preview site.


    This is the first time Google has released a developer preview. Usually the Android team works on new versions of the operating system in private and only releases the SDK and source code after a new build of Android is ready for the public.


    But Android L will have some pretty major changes including an entirely new design language called Material design. By releasing a preview several months before launch, Google gives app developers, phone makers, wireless carriers, and others more time to get ready for the public release.

    Google paves way for 64-bit Android apps with new Android L developer preview - Liliputing (click for full article)

    10/09/2014 at 10:00 AM by Brad Linder

    -- Google plans to launch the next version of its Android operating system this fall. Code-named Android L (at least until Google comes up with a good dessert name starting with the letter L), the operating system will feature a new design language and improvements to the lock screen, quick settings panel, graphics performance, and more.

    It’ll also be the first version of Android to support 64-bit applications.

    Right now there aren’t really any 64-bit Android apps. But that could soon change, now that Google has released a 64-bit developer preview emulator image of Android L.
