October 2015 OTA Links: Moar security fixes!
Yesterday was an exciting day of Android releases. It brought both the October 2015 Nexus Security Bulletin and the public release of Android 6.0 Marshmallow. I’ve updated our AOSP Changes site to show all of the new changes in glorious hyperlinked diff format. Both releases fix numerous critical security issues, so it’s important that these fixes reach users as quickly as possible. In the spirit of helping that happen, last month we pledged to help get these updates to security conscious individuals faster. Without further ado, I present the OTA links you all know and love.
NOTE: Some update URLs are still yet to be discovered. This post will be updated as soon as they become available.
