Jean-Baptiste Queru, the technical lead on the Android Open Source Project has just announced that the source for the newest version of Android 4.1 Jelly Bean will be made available today. Binaries are available for the Nexus 7 and GALAXY Nexus, with Nexus S and Motorola Xoom models promised soon.
This is more ammo for big third-party coders like CyanogenMod to crank out some great releases. It might take a little while before the code to be replicated and go live, but we've been patient enough, right?
We should see some great releases thanks to Jelly Bean and its Project Butter 60fps goodness, I can't wait to try out a Nexus 7 personally.
