Preheat the oven, Google’s mixin’ up a batch of Gingerbread

Gingerbread

With Froyo still frosty and yet to be released comes the announcement of Gingerbread, the next major update to the Google Android platform. Brian Swetland, Android’s Kernel guru, recently blogged to clear up some confusion surrounding the Android Kernel and dropped mention of the new codename:

This week we’re finalizing our move to 2.6.32 for the Android “Froyo” release, and we’ll likely be on .33 or .34 for “Gingerbread”.Brian Swetlandlwn.net

I’m not sure why but the new update names always get me excited. Maybe we should start up a pool where we all take guesses at the future names. H seems like it might be a tricky one…

    What about :

    Halvah or Halva

  3. I think the next version of android will either be huckleberry pie or hamburger bun….I’m torn between the 2.

  4. ToddGuest 5 years ago

    Hmmm, let’s see, naming convention needs to start with the letter “G”, but convey a “treat”, “dessert” or “yummy snack”.

    Gummybear, Gumdrop, Gum ( then things begin to deteriorate rapidly… ) Goo, Glop, Gunk

    I guess we all need to watch this scene from Family Guy to get inspiration

  22. It’s Gingerbread to follow Froyo at the Android house | Android ArenaGuest 5 years ago

    [...] The yummy sweet names of Google’s codenames for major Android builds continues itself in the alphabetical list — now stopping at the letter G. Although Froyo has yet to be released, we’re now getting the word about the “Gingerbread” codename that was mentioned by Brian Swetland, one of Google’s Android Kernel gurus. He has been quoted saying, “This week we’re finalizing our move to 2.6.32 for the Android Froyo release, and we’ll likely be on .33 or .34 for Gingerbread.” Much like what is known specifically about Froyo, which is still next to nothing, Gingerbread is still early in the development stage and won’t see anything come out of it for some time. Now that “Gingerbread” is made known, what do we have in store for the letter H? source: LWN.net via Android and Me [...]
