Yesterday,google has announce it new android version developer preview which is android L,mainly this updates version will be the major updates version since google will revamped the UI of current android version to be more flat look,with colour UI and tons of SWEET animation and the whole new package of the UI change called Material Design, other than than that we also get locksreen notification,change and improvement on notification + quick setting toggles, battery improvements and now android L will fully run on android runtime (ART) instead of dalvik which will increased performances, i personally impress with the updates that google making and would like to see this run on my phone.

How about you guys,do you like the change made? do you think sony will also revamped it's current xperia/timescape UI to match with android L? and the most important question,will our current phone (xperia ZL) get the updates officially from sony? I do think sony should adapt the stock android L material design with the addition refresh of walkman,album,movie apps that match material design since the sony UI feel a little bit outdated to me. That's all

I don't think that Sony will provide android L for ZL. They are too busy with their z2 and z3 concept they may not even turn back to these z series, hardly they will provide .233 upset for kk which consists bug fixes and that's it we will be made to sit with kk 4.4.2, we may not even get kk 4.4.3.

I agree I don't think we'll get official android L. By that time I will unlock bootloader and get CM12 or whatever.
Ps I don't even have official kitkat for my ZL.. (generic DE)....

We might get that via cyanogenmod. Sony never gonna release it to zl. May be this is the last update for us.

I don't think we'll see official L on our devices. However the new keyboard looks great on the ZL and the new Google play services fixes the wake lock issue.

Sony official release for our ZL will be a long wait unless you get the Z3 or Z4 whenever that comes out. Only way to get it is via Cyanogenmod I think.
