I’m sure that you attended the event yesterday, may be not in real but definitely LIVE with million others. And so it did happen, what we truly expected of this very event; the release of Jelly Bean 4.3The event was not quite long, yet unveiled tons of changes and new additions and as Sundar Pichai was taking his steps on the stage, a lot was happening alongside, uploading of Jelly Bean 4.3 source code, factory images, binaries, updated apps and much more. Here we are going to highlight specifically on the latest Jelly Bean 4.3 source code which was pushed to the AOSP a few hours back. So, if you’re a developer, set your machines up and start syncing and later you compile.

The source is available, as usual on Google’s Official Repository under android-4.3_r2.1. You can also obtain  the necessary drivers/binaries here.

Follow the Official Android 4.3 Developing Google Group, live by the AOSP Master Jean-Baptiste Queru. 

Words From JBQ

Here’s some words by the famous JBQ himself:

Google Airlines welcomes you on the ground in Android International Open Source Airport Project. The local time is exactly 4:30 pm. We will be taxiing for a few minutes to our gate JSS15J while ground support guides us to the public git server.
We hope that you had a pleasant flight and we welcome you to Jelly Bean, or that you have a conflict-free rebase while connecting to your final version.
Your source files will be delivered down the https://android.googlesource.com stairs, in hall jb-mr2-dev, on carousel android-4.3_r2.1. Oversize kernel source files will follow a few minutes later at the counter.
Customs forms are available at https://developers.google.com/android/nexus/drivers and need to be filled before starting a device build, even if this is not your first trip to Jelly Bean.
If you forgot to pack something in your luggage, pre-packed luggage is available at https://developers.google.com/android/nexus/images that contains everything you might need.
Should you have any questions, our agents are standing by at the android-building Google Group. Complaints and suggestions can be filed at http://b.android.com. Volunteers can head to the android-contrib Google Group, and job applicants to http://google.com/jobs
Even if you've visited Jelly Bean before, you will notice that our graphics public transportation is now smoother and more energy-efficient. The city is also safer for everyone, with an entire block dedicated to children. Location Hill was renovated, and the repaving of Bluetooth Avenue continued all the way to BTLE Street and AVRCP 1.3 Park. Our filesystem garbage collection service can now handle active households that generate a lot of trash.
On behalf of all of Google Airlines and of our Android ground crew, captain Conley and cabin chief JBQ wish you a pleasant experience with Android 4.3 and we hope to see you again soon.

With this being released, our beloved Developing teams like CyanogenMod and ParanoidAndroid have already committed themselves towards the new builds being based on Jelly Bean 4.3. Look at CM’s news here and PA’s here. Pretty sure that others too have started to merge their work! Heads up.
Stay tuned for more on Jelly Bean 4.3! Stay viewed, with DroidViews.
