Tapping into my inner Balmer with the post title
We’re queuing up releases across three branches this evening, releasing into the wild CM 11.0-security, 12.0-security and our very first 12.1 release. As always, these releases are being marked as ‘known good’ by their maintainer, and signed-off individually. This means that not every CM device will receive a release – only those marked as ‘Good to go’ by the maintainer.
The 11.0 and 12.0 builds are security releases built on top of the last CM11/12.0 releases, modified to include the recent security disclosures, including the vulnerabilities in Stagefright. Users of the previous 11/12.0 release builds are encouraged to update. Users of 11.0/12.0 weeklies (nightlies) will see no net change, and need not update.
The CM12.1 release marks our first Android 5.1.1 release which brings our IMAP idle support, SDK v1 release and the security fixes mentioned previously.
If you are updating to any of these builds, please pay close attention that the CM release version and the version of your third party installs (kernels, mods, gapps, etc) are compatible.
This is a substantial amount of releases, so bear with the build-bots as they go through the list. Should there be any hiccups in the process, we’ll resolve them tomorrow; for now, we’re going to go grab a beer or three.
