Google announces Android 4.1.2, rolling out to Nexus 7 now

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.
