Android M Developer Preview 2 brings new features and a dedicated memory manager
The Android M Developer Preview 2 just hit the airwaves, as promised by Google, and with it come several new features, compared to the first release. 

Some are welcome, like the new memory management system (looking at you, Lollipop), some look like a step back, like the vertical scrolling in the app drawer, or the hide-and-seek game that the theming option has apparently engaged in.

All eyes are on the new memory manager here, as we know how Lollipop sometimes drops the ball when it comes to leakage, memory sprawl, and battery drain on standby. There is now a dedicated section in the setting menu, where the system shows you how much memory an app uses at all times, not just when they are running, indicating possible memory hog footprints.
