Oh, Android – How do I love thee? Let me count the ways; I love that you’ve essentially eliminated the need to hypothesize what might be coming in future firmware updates as, due to your open source nature, it’s put out there for all to see. I love that.. well, there are other reasons, but none relevant to this post. No offense, Android.
In the recently published roadmap for the work-in-progress “Cupcake” Android development branch, a laundry list of bugs fixes and coming features is on display.
The big things on the feature front:
Stereo bluetooth, onscreen keyboards, video recording.. that covers a huge chunk of the gripes people have with the platform. No word yet on how (one big update? lots of little ones?) or when all of this will be rolled out (we’ll go ahead and assume the ETA is “When it’s done”), but it’s good to know whats on the way.
They also detail bug fixes across the board, from the depths of the framework to the camera and the music player. If you want to give the list a glance to see if your (least) favorite bug is getting nixed, you can check it out in full here.
