Latest version of OS 15.3.A.1.17 is already realeased. Eventhough it is not mentioned in SONY's website. But if u try for an update by using PC with Update Service soft (available in Sony Web) ur Xperia L will converted into 15.3.A.1.17.
N.B.: Last night I've been updated my Xperia L. And its true. But it may b available depends on ur location and mobile carrier. I have tried from Bangladesh.
From the begining of JUNE 2014, the last version of OS 4.3 is releasing for Xperia L. And its the last version for Xperia L.

Less free RAM on .17. I've been monitoring free RAM since .14 and I noticed that there is at least 50 MB less RAM on the new update. It can even go up to more than 800 MB. I noticed this when I was listening through my headphones.
I use SoundBoost to boost the volume of my phone. While a song is being played through the player (Walkman) and I disable SoundBoost (since it is automatically on on startup) , the drop in volume is noticeable but the song keeps on playing. But when I enable it while a song is being played, the song stops so I have to play it again but the volume is now louder.
Now, what happened was I was playing a song and the volume suddenly drops. Then, after a few seconds, it stops. I play it again and it sounds louder again like SoundBoost was restarted. It kept happening on almost every song so I speculated that the RAM might be the problem and the OS automatically restarts the app. So, I checked the RAM consumption and, to my surprise, the RAM consumption was at 800 MB. Here's a screenshot:
This was the highest I've had, just almost 2 weeks on .17. Free RAM on .14 was around 100 MB the least.
Here's a screenshot after I've restarted the phone:
It was usually around 350 MB after restart on .14.
I don't know why it consumes more now even if the new update wasn't even a new Android version, nor did it introduce new things nor bug fixes.
Definitely won't recommend .17.
