What’s in a number? The sum of all of its parts? What are those parts, then?

In a software release, it’s the small things like bugfixes, rewriting menu options, rewriting entire menus. It’s also the big things like vulnerabilities that need to be patched yesterday. But if you’re planning on regular releases, do we really need to plan on giving new names just for sake of giving some idea of iteration?

Well, according to Evan Blass, it’s all set up for the next nine months. Google plans on putting out once-a-quarter Maintenance Releases for Android Nougat. And they have changes in numbers.

Android 7.1” was already swirling around as the name for that first update.

Well, at least that’s supposedly the plan. Surprises in between can snap things into a bind, but it seems that Google has a blueprint in place that will see major features coming this fall and more minor changes through next spring.
