Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie Release Date and Features

Google's showing no signs of slowing its pace of Android development, with Android 4.0 appearing on the Galaxy Nexus late in 2011, followed in July of 2012 by the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean release that arrived powering the super Nexus 7.
But, forward-looking, update-obsessed people that we are, we can't help but imagine how Google's going to maintain the pace of innovation in its next major release of its mobile OS, Android 5.0.

Android 5.0 release date

The Android 5.0 release date is currently looking to be some time in October 2013, although we originally expected to see it break cover at Google IO which was scheduled to take place from May 15 to May 17 2013, a month earlier than 2012's June dates. Given that Google announced Android 4.1 Jelly Bean at 2012's IO conference, it seemed reasonable to expect to see Android 5.0 at this year's event.
On 31 January, a Google IO showing of Android 5.0 looked more likely when screengrabs of a Qualcomm roadmap were leaked, showing Android 5.0 as breaking cover between April and June 2013.
But on 24 April 2013, we read that Key Lime Pie may not make its debut at Google IO after all. Apparently, "trusty internal sources" told a site called Gadgetronica that Google decided to delay Android 5.0 for two to four months to give hardware makers the chance to properly roll out Android 4.2 Jelly Bean.
The notion of Key Lime Pie being off the menu at Google IO raised itself again on 26 April when Android 4.3 surfaced in server logs over at Android Police. Those log entries supposedly came from Nexus 4 and Nexus 7 devices running an updated version of Jelly Bean - Android 4.3 - and apparently the IP addresses of those devices trace back to Google HQ. So might that point to a delayed Android 5.0 arrival?
And on 13 May, we got our (almost certain) confirmation that there would be no serving of Key Lime Pie at Google IO from Sundar Pichai, Google's new head of Android. Pichai told Wired that this year's IO is "not a time when we have much in the way of launches of new products or a new operating system". Boo! "Both on Android and Chrome, we're going to focus this IO on all the kinds of things we're doing for developers so that they can write better things," he added.


Google wasn't entirely quiet on Android 5 at its IO conference, though. As Android Authority spotted, during a session entitled 'Android Protips 3: Making Apps Work Like Magic' Android developer relations tech lead Reto Meier teased attendees with a slide showing an Android eating a piece of Key Lime Pie and later with a game where the options included Jelly Bean and Key Lime Pie.
Word on the street, or at least on the streets of VR-Zone as of 13 June, is that Android 5 is now going to land in October 2013, along with the Nexus 5 phone.
In the meantime, we do have the minor Android 4.3 update to look forward to.
Personally, this is the following improvements and features I would like to see in Key Lime Pie

PERSONALIZATION: (Most Important)

-More stock Google Widgets
IE Clock and Weather widget of there own
IE Scrollable Current Widgets for separate feeds you follow
IE Battery Widget

-Change color scheme of stock OS
I would like the option to change the black and blue scheme ICS/JB as well the color of stock keyboard. 

FEATURES:

-Notifications (Most Important)
I would like to be able to quickly reply or delete and email or message straight fom notification window from either lock or unlocked screen.
A vibrate feature to remind me notifications when pick up my phone but also vibrate by itself every so often as a reminder. For example I have some type of notification and it will vibrate once or twice every minute for five minutes. Obviously I would like flexibility to change time and frequency of vibration as well which notifications I would allow to have this option. 

-Lockscreen
The ability have widgets on my lock screen.
The ability access the app drawer to have certain apps I choose to be access with out unlocking the phone.

-Multitasking
The ability to run more than one app at same time on screen.(ONLY ON PHABLETS,TABLETS,ETC)
IE play Angry Birds on the left or right side of the screen and text on opposite side.
IE watch video or browse the internet on top half or bottom half the screen and text on opposite screen

PERFORMANCE: (Most Important)
-Improved Speed
-Improved Battery Life
-Improved Sensitivity

I am not expecting android to make all my wishes come true with next OS but hopefully after a few updates they will have have most of them.

What improvements and features would you like in the future of android OS? What are most important improvement or features would you like?
