Google has been releasing monthly reports about its self-driving car program for quite some time now, and now December’s report has hit the interwebs.

Nexus 7 also being updated to Android 4.2.1
Along with the Android 4.2.1 OTA update released for the LG Nexus 4 and Nexus 10 this morning, Google also released the software update for its Nexus 7 tablet. The update, labeled build “JOP40D”, fixes the December bug that wouldn’t allow users of the People app to select a date in December for a birthday, anniversary, or similar event. As always, the update can be obtained through system update, and it will roll out to users gradually. Thankfully, the folks in Mountain View aren’t leaving behind the Nexus 7.
Google’s LG Nexus 4 and Nexus 10 devices are now getting an over-the-air update to Android 4.2.1—just in time for December.
There isn’t much else different in the software release, and it is unknown at this time if this latest version of Jelly Bean will also land for the Nexus 7 or Galaxy Nexus. However, like most OTA updates, 4.2.1 is rolling out in phases. So, it could take a few days before it is available to all.
The OTA update link is below.

Those that updated to Android 4.2 might have noticed a bug that prevents users from selecting December for events like birthdays inside of the People app. Google has now officially addressed the issue in a post on the Android Google+ page by confirming that it plans to fix the bug before December:
We discovered a bug in the Android 4.2 update, which makes it impossible to enter December events in optional fields of the People app (this bug did not affect Calendar). Rest assured, this will be fixed soon so that those of you with December birthdays and anniversaries won’t be forgotten by your friends and family.
