Google has just released Android 4.1.2 in Android Open Source Project. According Googler Jean-Baptiste Queru, 4.1.2 is a minor update.
There are no details when the new Android version will start rolling out to Galaxy Nexus or Xoom tablet, however Nexus 7 has already started getting the update.
According to Nexus 7 Android 4.1.2 change-log, the update brings performances and stability improvements as well as several bug-fixes. No new features seem to be present in Android 4.1.2 apart from the presence of landscape support in stock launcher.
We’re releasing Android 4.1.2 to AOSP today, which is a minor update on top of 4.1.1.
As a note to maintainers of community builds running on Nexus 7: please update to 4.1.2 at the first opportunity. Future variants of the grouper hardware will have a minor change in one of the components (the power management chip) that will not be compatible with 4.1.1.
The build number is JZO54K, and the tag is android-4.1.2_r1.
