Google changed the way they roll out features to users, so you might see the previous release notes in the Play Store for a couple days following a new update.

The play/pause button via my bluetooth headset was working fine for me up until this version, but now it will play but not pause music.  It also will not pause music quickly enough when the GPS tries to break through, and thus will cut off part of the directions being spoken.  This also worked fine on older versions.

I did some digging, and discovered that in ICS and beyond, play and pause send different codes, here is a fix I found another user used to correct the same issue in Subsonic.

For play/pause, tell your app developers to fix their code. Here's a patch I did for Subsonic. It should be obvious to any dev what they need to change. On a Galaxy Nexus (GSM) with Motorola S305 headset, all buttons work properly now. FWD, BACK, and Call worked fine before. It was just play/pause causing issues.
