June's security updates are now available for all of the currently supported Nexus (and Pixel C) devices. As usual, the code changes to go along with this month's new firmware have been uploaded to AOSP and we've got some changelogs to look through. While it's a bit late, Google also uploaded the code changes for N Developer Preview 3. As usual, this isn't a complete release of N, but mostly just the code for projects licensed under the GPL.
Google has already posted the security bulletin, which describes the lion's share of changes. Most of the issues resolved in this version have to do with vulnerabilities in Qualcomm drivers. Those aren't a part of AOSP, so we won't see very much activity in the changelogs from them, just new versions of Qualcomm's proprietary binaries.
The code drop for N Developer Preview 3 is actually close to three weeks late. Factory images and OTAs came out in mid-May during Google I/O. It's likely that, in the chaos of the event and everything else going on during that week, the upload to AOSP was forgotten. Whatever the reason, the oversight has been corrected and we now have some changelogs to look through.
