Google will soon release the Android N update, but since it is not yet available, people will have to do with the developer preview. Just recently, the Androd N Developer Preview 4 AOSP Changelog has been spotted with the promise that people will soon be able to update to the firmware.
Android N Developer Preview 4 AOSP Changelog
A lot of people and developers have been keeping a close watch on the releases of the Android N preview, since it usually provides a hint on what specs and features to expect. However, there will be so many changes that some of them will not be visible to the naked eye. Thanks to the AOSP changelog, that has now been spotted. People will be able to look deeper into the Android N system.
“This only includes the Android Open Source Project changes and does not include any changes in any proprietary components included by Google or any hardware manufacturer. The raw log was generated using a modified version of this script written by JBQ, and further improved by Al Sutton,” the changelog reads.
According to Android Police, since it is a developer preview, the changelog will still be incomplete. The log should most likely cover “projects Google is responsible for disclosing under the terms of the GPL and other similar open source licenses.” People should not expect code for features like the notification shade.
Android N Release
- March: Android N developer preview 1 (alpha)
- April: Android N developer preview 2 (beta)
- May: Android N developer preview 3 (beta)
- June: Android N developer preview 4 (with final APIs and SDK)
- July: Android N developer preview 5 (near-final build)

This means that people can expect the release to be sometime around August or September depending on Google’s announcements. All information should be taken with a grain of salt until the official announcement.
