Great video +Rich Hyndman! But I'd like to know I we can expect updates to the L preview. Would be kind of pointless without, right?

They'll be some extras coming, like the 64bit emulator. But I don't believe new device images are coming.
 
+Rich Hyndman updated images would make sense if you guys want to smash bugs. With only the one release testing is quite limited.
 
True, but the preview release is primarily for developers to be able to test their apps and get them ready for the L launch. It is the first time we've had a preview release and it will mean less chance of issues with apps in the Play Store at launch and more apps ready to take advantage of the new features.
 
+Rich Hyndman totally get this but let me give you an example. I use OkHttp and there is a bug in the preview and +Jake Wharton said it's already fixed but I can't test with the current preview release. And I could fix it but that's not the point. The preview testing capabilities are quite small in its current iteration.

I know this is new for you guys, but a weekly release for developers even if you have to be registered would be awesome for you and us
 
+Michael Panzer Your statement holds too much logic. It has banished him to the Google Voice-Hangouts integration blackhole. Good luck with any response you wanted :-D
 
+Ananya Gupta you know I haven't expected a response in the first place. 😊
I hope Google will see the benefit of more test releases over the development period. The community will find every bug out there.
 
+Michael Panzer I hear ya! It makes total sense to anyone and I thought that would be the logical progression behind maintaining the 'L' Developer Preview release.
 
But they probably would have to maintain another android branch without those new awesome upcoming features of "L" just for the Preview.
Otherwise they would leak everything ;-)
 
+Benedikt Knoll yes, you're right but that shouldn't be the problem... Also the idea would be to test the things before release. I think a release with less bugs is better then the surprise in the end!
 
We all would love a updated image, but maybe the L release is closer than we think. Let's hope for the best :-P
 
Hopefully there is some incremental update. Would be nice to test the fixes that Android L has before the release goes public
 
i guess L release is very near ... not to many bugs left to kill... updated images makes no sense... will further make L release less mouthwatering
