The new "material" is in calculator and calendar as skiman10 said, the keyboard, settings app and the notification drawer are part of the new "material" too. We all were expecting more of it but we'll have to wait until the final release. There are no new apps for download, and i dont think google will change the UI of all gapps like gmail,maps and so on.

L is not stable at the moment. It's meant for devs to be able to work on their apps. Expects unrecoverable FC's etc.

All of which won't stop dozens of people who don't know how flashing "L" today will benefit them from flashing anyway. They're the same people who have an urgent need to root their devices without knowing why they should root their devices.

Expecting the inevitable flood of "I 'bricked' my Nexus after flashing to 'L'" threads...

Expecting such is fine and all, but I can personally confirm that everything I do is fine generally. Just 2 games that I barely play anyway don't work, but it's a small price to pay

Should also note I'm not a dev, yet anyway. I just like new things
