This week’s release is a minor cleanup from our 4.4 final release last week. Between Google I/O and the Android L preview release, not as much work got done on PA as we would have hoped. We would like to re-iterate that we cannot release any ROM based on L until the source code is publicly available, but until then we can reflect on what Android is shaping up to be.
Numerous features in Android L have been inspired by the Android aftermarket community, even some from our own PA. L has gotten serious about notifications just as we have at PA. Google has refined our Hover into something they call heads up. Heads up shows a brief, interactive card of your notifications, and Hover takes that one step further by allowing you to open a floating window. For those of you who missed it, we released a preview of our recents redesign. Minus a few material touches, our design is almost identical to Google's. Hats off to our design team, Lord Duarte would be pleased. Per app color is also judicious used throught out L another PA original feature. We are proud to see the idea mature into a android feature but we still have our own vision for it, which we will be sharing with you soon.
We also have a few surprises coming up, so keep your eyes in the PA page in the coming days

Many of you are curious about our network configuration and how we distribute such a massive workload across such a small team. There was a lot of thought put into designing our system, and we tried to keep it as simple as possible to eliminate bottlenecks and bugs.
