Release day is here again, with CM 11.0 M7 hitting the download servers. Last week’s post included the highlights from the changelog, but we’ll it again for those of you who prefer tl;dr.
* Common: Theme Chooser UI Overhaul * Common: Calculator app redesign (courtesy Xlythe) * Common: Performance Profiles * Common: Improved theming performance on low memory devices (~512MB RAM or less) * Trebuchet: Move settings to new slide-out panel * Trebuchet: Consolidate settings for home and drawer options * Media: Add FFMPEG support (expanded media format support) * Bluetooth: Improved support for new car audio systems and docks * Various small bugfixes, global and device-specific
The non-device specific code was branched on May 22nd, giving us a bit longer than usual for our stabilization period. Device specific code was branched on May 31st. For those of you who jump between nightlies and M releases, the May 22nd branch point is the one you should be paying attention to.
To get ahead of the inevitable questions, this release is based on Android 4.4.2. The 4.4.3 source has been merged into CM for nightlies, but given the source code was only made available last week, we chose not to rush the new code into the stable branch. There will be plenty of things to address with 4.4.3 in time for our M8 release next month.
