Android Lemon Meringue Pie build LRW87D seen on issue tracker site, running on Nexus 5
Is Android L being tested on the Nexus 5? The Chromium issue tracker on the Chromium web site revealed Lemon Meringue Pie build LRW87D running on the Hammerhead, which was Google's code for the Nexus 5. The issue being reported has something to do with videos crashing on the phone, while the new OS build is installed.

The version of Lemon Meringue Pie employed is quite recent. Breaking down the LRW87D build number, the "L" stands for Lemon Meringue Pie. The second letter "R" is a code used by Google that reveals the code branch that the build was made from. The remaining "W87" tells us that the build was made on the 87th day of the third quarter of 2014. How do we know that? If we start with "A"  for the first quarter of 2009, and move to the next letter for each quarter, "W" would be the third quarter of 2014. The 87th day of the quarter was September 25th. And the "D" means that it was the fourth version of the OS produced that day.

Google says that the date codes aren't always perfect. But it does show us that Android L is currently being tested, and with the third quarter now over, we should see the latest Android build released some time before the current quarter ends. You can view a video of LRW87D in action, and see it crash, by clicking on the video below.
