Google "As everyone is trying to guess whether the next big Android update is going to be Key Lime Pie or not, and whether the release will be Android 5.X or 4.X, we have yet to hear anything concrete. After getting a tip from an eagle-eyed reader (thanks, deepayan!) and digging deeper, I can definitively tell you that Google is currently working on Android 4.3, and it is still Jelly Bean." Great detective work by Artem Russakovskii.

Let me see:

- Support Java 7 language constructs (most likely not going to happen with the Oracle suit going on)

- Compile Java to native code or improve the JIT

- Allow the full use of native applications, instead of shared objects loaded into Dalvik with wrappers around JNI calls

- With clang as part of the NDK, start supporting Objective-C instead of disabling it

- Even without generics (my pet peeve), allow for Go usage in the NDK via gccgo

I think I can remember of a few more issues from the developer point of view.
