What is Android’s icicle parameter?

I’ve noticed in some coding people use icicle with the onCreate method, and I was wondering what it is exactly:

public class About extends Activity {
@Override
protected void onCreate(Bundle icicle) {
super.onCreate(icicle);
setContentView(R.layout.whatup);
}

Is this the same thing as savedInstanceState?

“icicle” is sometimes used as the name of the parameter because onSaveInstanceState() used to be called onFreeze().
