Browse Every New AOSP Code Commit in Android 4.4.1

With every new version of Android, end users are greeted with dozens of new features, each designed to make our lives just a little bit easier. However, it’s not only consumers who benefit from new Android versions. By virtue of its open source nature, Android ROM and kernel developers are essentially early Christmas presents in the form of hundreds or thousands of new AOSP code commits to merge.

Thankfully, there are resources available to sort and aggregate all of the additions. The most famous of these comes from the fine folks over at FunkyAndroid. Using this script written by former AOSP lead JBQ, the site displays all of the commits and their descriptions, all sorted by project.

You may remember FunkyAndroid’s previous changelog, which detailed all of the changes introduced with Android 4.4 KitKat. Their newest changelog now shows viewers every commit made from KRT16M (4.4) to KOT49E (4.4.1), including one change that may indicate future changes to the AOSP email client’s distribution method.

To get started, make your way over to the FunkyAndroid page and check out those code commits!
