    mistakes

    there are lots of mistakes in this article.
    Jelly bean uses the following kernels
    3.0 kernel for Galaxy Nexus
    3.1 kernel for Nexus 7
    3.4 Kernel for Nexus 4 and Nexus 10.

    sound pretty unlikely they would ship it in Android 5.0, with only 3 months to go before Google I/O, no?

    I think it may be for Android 6.0, and probably because 3.7 and later 3.8 contained 64 bit ARMv8 support, and also the F2FS file systems like others have said.

    i actually found all the new things they've been roping into java has made it a lot more convoluted and uglier. it's like they want to turn it into something unintuitive like PHP or C++.

    jmo of course.

    edit: before you know it they'll be adding "unsigned ints"
    I wouldnt call that a bad thing, when you consider it probably adds more power while getting rid of the amateur devs who release crappy apps.

    Because now Nexus 7 with latest Android 4.2.2 still use old 3.1.10 kernel built on November 29, 2012.

    I hope they already rebase it on more modern Java, because they still use Java 6 which is boring.
    Java 7 is much nicer.

    The fact that its 3.1 isn't really related to whether Androids kernel changes are mainlined. Those changes are easy enough to port to any modern kernel version. The real problem is NVIDIA and other ARM makers usually develop against one kernel version and don't update for a year or two.
