Following on the heals of its announcement of a corporate restructuring and new Alphabet name, Google gets back to more mundane technical pronouncements with the release of the official Android 6.0 SDK and reveal of the Marshmallow designation as the company opens up Google Play for publishing apps that target the new API level 23 in Android Marshmallow.

For most developers, Marshmallow will prove a nice overhaul from Lollipop.

9 – Nectarine
8 – Now & Later
7 – Necco Wafer
6 – Nougat 
5 – Nerds
4 – Nilla Wafers
3 – Nut’n Honey
2 – Neapolitan
1 – Nutrageous
