Android 4.1 Jelly Bean Changelog Reveals Full Recipe of Changes

Google spent considerable time talking about its Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) update during its Google I/O conference a few weeks ago, but only now has the sultan of search gotten around to posting a full changelog for the latest and greatest version of its open-source mobile operating system. The newly posted changelog details Jelly Bean from top to bottom, some of which Google has already highlighted.

References to Project Butter, for example, appear throughout, which is the technology that makes phones and tablets running Jelly Bean feel buttery smooth compared to previous Android builds.

The devil is in the details, however, and the changlog focuses on all aspects of Jelly Bean, not just the ones Google talked about in late June. Extensive bullet points cover everything from the keyboard and networking to accessibility options and the camera, and everything in between.

In related news, Google has begun pushing out Jelly Bean to Samsung's Galaxy Nexus HSPA+ devices.

"Up next for Jelly Bean: all Galaxy Nexus, Nexus S, Motorola Xoom, and of course Nexus 7, which will ship with Jelly Bean later this month," Google announced last week.
