NVIDIA has posted the changelog for the Android 5.0.1 update to the Shield Tablet. Nothing earth-shattering here with the point increase — "improvements in general UI and app responsiveness" is always a good thing to see, and also not surprising given the state of Lollipop.

Also: The Camera Awesome app gets some new effects with this update as well, the Shield Power Control Menu has returned, and there have been some memory optimization improvements as well.

Here's the full changelog for Android 5.0.1 on the Shield Tablet:

  • Operating System update to Android 5.0.1: SHIELD Tablet gets updated to the latest version of Android 'Lollipop'. This is a minor release which includes a few bug fixes and updates
  • System performance enhancements: Improvements in general UI and app responsiveness, including switching between apps
  • Camera enhancements: Live HD Effects (HDFX): The Camera Awesome app gets some cool new creative effects for stills and videos. All the effects leverage the power of the Tegra K1 GPU to deliver live-preview and full resolution recording with the effects
  • SHIELD Power Control Menu: We've bought back the SHIELD Power Control Menu, based on community feedback
  • Memory optimizations: Enhanced support and optimizations for memory intensive apps
  • OpenGL 4.5 support
  • Localization improvements

Look for the update any time now.
