Hi! We just released a bit of code we thought this group might be interested in.
Over at our Android Open-Source Project git servers, the source code
for Android version 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) is now available.
Here’s how to get it:Follow the instructions at
http://source.android.com/source/downloading.html Check out the
‘ics-release’ branch:repo init -u
https://android.googlesource.com/platform/manifest -b android-4.0.1_r1
That’s it! However since this is a large push, please be aware that it
will take some time to complete. If you sync before it’s done, you’ll
get an incomplete copy that you won’t be able to use, so please wait
for us to give the all-clear before you sync.
This is actually the source code for version 4.0.1 of Android, which
is the specific version that will ship on the Galaxy Nexus, the first
Android 4.0 device. In the source tree, you will find a device build
target named “full_maguro” that you can use to build a system image
for Galaxy Nexus. Build configurations for other devices will come
Unfortunately we still don’t have our Gerrit code review servers back
online. That remains our top priority though, and we hope to have them
This release includes the full history of the Android source code
tree, which naturally includes all the source code for the Honeycomb
releases. However, since Honeycomb was a little incomplete, we want
everyone to focus on Ice Cream Sandwich. So, we haven’t created any
tags that correspond to the Honeycomb releases (even though the
changes are present in the history.)

As you know, like many other projects the Android Open-Source Project was affected by the recent kernel.org
downtime. So, we’re pleased to let you know that the Gingerbread source code is now available again, and AOSP git servers are back online.
Even before the kernel.org
downtime, it was clear that AOSP was sometimes taxing kernel.org
’s git infrastructure. When we did the Gingerbread source release, for example, load due to AOSP made part of kernel.org
unusable for several days. This isn’t fair to kernel.org
’s staff or the community, so for some time we’ve been preparing our own git hosting on Google servers.
We were finishing up just as kernel.org
experienced their downtime, so the Gingerbread source is now available on Google’s servers. Accordingly, the git URLs have changed.
Here are the instructions to access the new git servers:
There are a few limitations to be aware of:
- Our priority has been getting the main source code mirrors back online, so for the moment gitweb source browsing and Gerrit Code Review are still unavailable.
- We are now working on bringing AOSP’s Gerrit Code Review site back up, and hope to be able to say something here soon.
- It might be a little while longer before gitweb comes back, unfortunately, since Gerrit Code Review is the next priority.
- To reiterate, these servers contain only the ‘gingerbread’ and ‘master’ branches from the old AOSP servers. We plan to release the source for the recently-announced Ice Cream Sandwich soon, once it’s available on devices.
- As these new servers are, well, new, there may be hiccups if we encounter unexpected issues. However we’re keeping a close eye on them and will respond to any issues as quickly as possible.
Finally, we’d like to send a huge “thank-you” to the kernel.org
community and Oregon State University Open-Source Lab staff. They’ve done an incredible job hosting the AOSP source code mirror and Gerrit Code Review for nearly 3 years. Without them, it’s safe to say that AOSP would not be where we are today.
Thanks, and happy coding!

今天在solidot看到Google开发了开源实时语音视频项目WebRTC(需要翻墙), 相关的源代码在Google Code. 这里有个简单的Demo有兴趣的可以去看看, 相关的API可以参考这里. 搜了一下WebRTC相关信息，发现爱立信也在做相关的研究，项目地址在这里，并且有个Demo，不过需要安装WebKit library, 目前之支持Ubuntu 11.04, 不过看相关的视频效果还是不错。Web Real-Time Communication,
