New icons for WiFi and network signal

Icons Wifi and network signal yet become flatter. More bars but now a space more or less depending on the full signal strength.

New icon for Gmail

The Gmail notification icon now shows several envelopes stacked on top of each other, giving a thickness effect. Is it to show the number of messages or the presence of more unread messages? Hard to say but if it ever were to happen, it would be an improvement rather welcome.

A new ON / OFF switch

New icons for devices in the Bluetooth settings

If a benchmark yesterday announced the arrival of Android 5.0 Lion here is "LMP" which is mentioned by immediately think of "  Lemon Meringue Pie  ". Is it just a code name or initials of the final version?
Knowing that last year, "Key Lime Pie" was mentioned very late before the official announcement of KitKat, it is quite possible that once again, the Google OS takes the name of a candy bar. Note also that Google's services have been upgraded to 6.0, whereas for us they are still version 5.0.89.
