June 28, 2012
"At its Mountain View headquarters, Google put up an Android statue filled with jelly beans yesterday, making it a certainty that a new version of Android would be presented at the Google I/O developer conference. And later that day it did announce "Jelly Bean", Android 4.1 which differs from its predecessors mainly in small details, but Google has also added complete new applications such as the Google Now assistant. The greatest amount of innovation in Android 4.1 is incorporates in what Google has termed "Project Butter" – designed to ensure that the user interface has a "fast, fluid and smooth" feel, and that there are fewer delays when users input information. To this end, Google uses technologies such as Vertical Synchronisation (VSync) and Triple Buffering: VSync makes sure that the graphics chip doesn't output more frames per second than the screen can display, while Triple Buffering pre-calculates images and buffers them in memory." -
