Google Finally! Jean-Baptiste Queru (yes, husband of) has announced the source code release for Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich (technically, it's 4.0.1). Naturally, this code dump also happens to include the source code for Honeycomb - however, due to Honeycomb's incomplete nature, there's no tags available for it. Not interesting from a let's-build-it-and-code-point of view, but it is interesting for ROM hackers - bring it on, ICS for my Galaxy SII!

Except, 99-2000 she was still at BeNews, which might be what you are thinking of? I'm pretty sure she didn't leave BeNews fully till 2001 when the site went belly up, and transitioned to OSNews some time that year.


She just typed "www.osnews.com" in the address bar after BeNews went tits up, and ended up at the stagnant OSNews (v1). She sent a mail to David, and he allowed her to completely overhaul it. That was OSNews v2. Adam then wrote OSNews v3 to overhaul many of the lower systems. He also wrote v4 which is what we're currently using.

Someone who shall remain unnamed started work on OSNews v5, but that project never got finished because we bit off way more than we could chew. We're currently planning something I came up with called OSNews Simple - I'll let you decide what that means (esp. in light of several popular websites getting ever more complex and confusing).
