The "Screen Orientation API" is now listed as "View Orientation API".
I do not really understand why this change has been made. I could 
understand that "Screen Orientation" might be confusing with 
"DeviceOrientation" but "View Orientation" isn't really making that 
easier to understand.
In addition, the "Screen Orientation API" is about getting and locking 
the entire device's screen, not the application view. Using "View" 
instead of "Screen" might make this intent very unclear.

What was the reasons behind this renaming?
