If you were looking for the developer changelog for Android KitKat to Lollipop 5.0.0 r2, now you can find it on the AOSP. Yesterday morning, Google started uploading the Lollipop source code to the AOSP and, considering the operation took some hours, now we can sigh in relief that we have it at our disposal at any time. Anyone who wants to compile their own Android version can now try to do so whereas those who are just curious to find out the changes in a comprehensible manner can glance at the developer changelog generated by Al Sutton.
This is the biggest Android update yet and the changelog is a rather bulky one too. You will find 128,680 commits which will only increase in number as future updates hit the public, and they would be even more if not for the unbundling of Chromium WebView from Android.
The android-5.0.0_r1 tag, or LRX21L, is destined for Nexus 9 and the android-5.0.0_r2, or LRX21M, is destined for the Nexus player. These are the official builds for the new devices and other builds will soon show up for the rest of the Nexus devices. The source code for Lollipop was kept in a forked branch to facilitate KitKat updates and bug fixes to other devices, but it may reach the master branch in the following days.
