Android L is finally getting some fixes that will ease the pain for those living on the edge.

A Google Code site that tracks Android L bugs lists 14 fixes within the last 24 hours. A rather notable issue is the inability for Hangouts to send MMS messages through AT&T or T-Mobile's networks.

Along with that fix, other resolutions include an "S" appearing instead of a "7" in the dialer, disappearing notifications, hangups on the lock screen, and the all-important missing emoji.

Other jankiness and inconsistencies are part of the report, which is a fairly common set of issues for any pre-release software.

Google has yet to announce when Android L is hitting devices, only promising that it would happen in the Fall. Android 4.4 KitKat was announced last year on Halloween.

Check out our walkthrough for how to install Android L on your Nexus 5 or 7 if you want to get your hands on the future of Android.
