Week Ending: April 26, 2014
“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.
As the team works toward the preparations for M6, its time for another wrap up.
A quick stroll through our recent items merged in to CM 11 mainline:
* Theme Engine – Improve performance and support for Legacy themes
* Trebuchet – Hide Apps
* Trebuchet – Hide app labels
* Quick Settings – Make it possible to show smaller QS Tiles
* Translations – Crowdin import
* JF/D2 platform – Fix all the APN & Data issues, all blockers for M6 should be resolved
* Bluetooth – Bluedroid updates.
* MultiSim – additional fixes and layout changes
* Recovery – Resolve custom key mappings
* Phone/Dialer – Landscape support (for docks)
* Dialer – Support for paid Open CNAM accounts (CallerID)
* WhisperPush – #holoyolo
* Security Fix – Fix Memory Corruption Bug with long app names
* cLock – Display date range for multi-day or all-day appointments
* APN Updates
As we move forward with the M6 release date approaching, we will be squashing any show-stopper bugs that are remaining.
* Disconnecting BT A2dp may result incorrect audio router, requires toggling BT on/off to fix (must fix for M6)
* Know something else that should be elevated in status? Let me know in the comments
Our maintainers are working on all of the new flagships, including the new HTC One, S5, Note 3 Exynos and the Oppo Find 7a. More immediately, the Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 Wifi (mondrianwifi) and Xperia SP (huashan) are near ready for nightly support. We’ll do a post on our G+ account when these nightlies kick off officially.
As Cyanogen Inc. continues to grow, it has become necessary to split blog posts to more readily describe what news updates affect each project. I will still be managing the updates for both avenues, but you will soon be seeing a separate blog for the company and its ventures. This should keep a clear distinction of which points overlap and which points apply specifically to the CyanogenMod Project.
Both projects are also seeing an increased need to keep track of regressions more thoroughly. There will be some policy changes regarding JIRA and bug reports to help assist that process. We’ll do a separate post when those changes are ready to deploy.
Got a suggestion for a topic you’d like to see in the next round-up? Let us know in the comments below. All device/port requests will be ignored.
