While there are frequent unexplained changes and pushes to Google's AOSP repositories, an interesting-looking new branch has been pushed out recently, called "master-soong".

xPerfect Full Android Development Environment
Fed up of spending too much time messing around with environments, and unable to find a live cf or kitchen for cooking ROMS, XDA forum member MrHassell decided to build his own and release to share with the rest of the community.
xPerfect provides a full Android development environment in the form of a virtual machine and is free for anyone to download and use as required for building and developing Android sources, kernels, drivers and more.

Please note that this is still a work in progress and is in initial release for feedback and suggestions.
For more information, including the download link, check out the forum thread.

I personally like neither, and I simply download the latest 3D games to see the progression...
