Here’s All That’s Changed in Android 5.0 Lollipop

Here’s All That’s Changed in Android 5.0 Lollipop

With each passing generation of Android OS, the fine folks over at Funky Android have made it a habit to release a full developer changelogs that detail everything that’s changed up until that point. They’ve done this ever since the days of Android 4.4.1, and they’ve continued the habit all the way to the Android L Developer Preview. Now with the full Lollipop source code finally finishing its journey over to the AOSP servers, it was only a matter of time before we’d have a similar developer changelog for Android 5.0.

Well folks, the time is here, as the Funky Android team have once again created a comprehensive list showing everything that’s changed with Android 5.0 Lollipop. As always, this service is made possible thanks to an open source script released by none other than former AOSP lead JBQ.

As you would expect in a full major version change from 4 to 5.0, there is quite a lot that has been changed. As such, the changelog is rather extensive at over 125,000 commits. That said, if scrolling through a lollipop-flavored wall of text is your thing, head over to the Funky Android Lollipop Changelog to learn more. Oh, and for those wondering, we’re looking at Linux kernel 3.14.
