Google has announced the existence of Android 4.3. It includes a host of new features, some of which may be more welcome than others. "To meet the needs of the next generation of media services, Android 4.3 introduces a modular DRM framework that enables media application developers to more easily integrate DRM into their own streaming protocols, such as MPEG DASH (Dynamic Adaptive Streaming over HTTP, ISO/IEC 23009-1)." There is no word on general availability or when this code will be available through the Android Open Source Project.
