Android 5.0 Lollipop DSC07203

Yesterday we watched as the Lollipop was uploaded to AOSP and while the Nexus community still anxiously awaits the release of Android 5.0 factory images, we now have a little bit of downtime. Taking a look at Lollipop running on the Nexus 5 and it’s pretty easy to see how big Android 5.0 is from Android 4.4 KitKat. Because seeing is believing, you might be curious to take a look at every, single, change made to Android code in Lollipop — outside the major changes already public on Android.com.

Today the folks at Funky Android have once again compiled a developer changelog of all the changes made from KitKat to Android 5.0 Lollipop using a modified version of a script written by ex-Googler Jean-Baptiste Queru. The initial changelog for 5.0.0_r2 is pretty substantial, weighing in at just over 128,680 commits. Yeah, Android 5.0 Lollipop is huge.

Expect the changelog to be updated as bugs are discovered and patched in future updates, so goes the story with initial software releases. As far as those factory images go, Nexus 9 is now live (but expect smartphone images to launch sometime in the coming weeks).
