Week Ending: September 13, 2013
“This Week in CyanogenMod” is an ongoing feature that aims to serve as a one-stop shop for weekly updates. Topics discussed are culled from our social media accounts, gerrit, status updates and general thoughts.
It’s Friday the 13th – hope you aren’t superstitious.
Big Android BBQ Madness!
With general admission tickets ending this week was packed full of #babbq news. Up first, OPPO announced their contest to win a FREE trip to the Big Android BBQ. With your trip paid for you could enjoy the BBQ and party like crazy at the Official Party! We are excited to be the Official Sponsors of the Official Party – check out the snazzy flier!
Steve (cyanogen), Koush (koush) and Drew (utkanos) also did a hangout with the BABBQ team talking about CM and what’s next for the project. The recorded hangout is available for those that couldn’t watch live.
We began shipping CM Account in the nightly 10.2 builds this week, enabling secure find and wipe capabilities for your devices. We received a lot of requests to enable this for 10.1.3’s final release, so we investigating that and making sure there are no bugs we missed. We’ll likely end up including it for you 10.1.3 users as well.
A while back, there was an Ask Me Anything (AMA) request for the CM folks. Next Wednesday, September 18th at 11:30am PST we will be following through on that request with Steve, Koush and myself taking part in an AMA. We’re even on the official /r/IAmA schedule! Make sure to come out and vote for the questions you want answered. Fair warning though, asking about device support is likely to be down-voted, so try to stay clear of that question 😉
While Nemesis is multi-pronged, we gave a hint towards one of the upcoming features. Can you figure it out?
“The internet may blow up”
That was the phrase Steve chose to use in the BABBQ hangout when asked about what we had planned for next. No spoilers here though, else Koush might hunt me down on one of his yachts.
