CyanogenMod 11 M10 release is upon us, and is as the case with new builds, M10 features a host of new features that include a new bug tracker, ability to access the last used app by long pressing the recent apps button, a soft reboot option and support for glove mode and smart covers (like this one).
With the M10 release, Sprint's Galaxy S5 is added to the list of compatible devices, while CDMA versions of the Galaxy Nexus (Sprint/toroplus, Verizon/toro) and Motorola's Droid Maxx Dev Edition (obake) are being removed from the device roster. The GSM version of the Galaxy Nexus is unaffected, and will continue to get support from the CyanogenMod team.
Here's the full changelog:
- New Devices: Galaxy S5 Sprint (kltespr)
- Split out Note 3 into GSM (hlte), Sprint (hltespr) and Verizon (hltevzw)
- Refactor moto_msm8960dt as 'ghost' for Moto X 2013
- Drop support for obake, toro, toroplus
- Theme Engine: Themes support for additional UI elements
- Frameworks & Core Apps: CAF and other upstream updates
- Settings: Add scramble pin feature
- Frameworks: Long press recent apps to switch to last used app
- Settings: Add soft reboot option
- Add smart cover support
- Add glove mode support
- Add bug reporter and crash log uploader
- Multisim updates
- General bug fixes (many many)
- ANT+ Support for various hardware
- Privacy Guard: Control NFC permissions
The bug tracking feature is interesting, with the CyanogenMod team emphasising that submitting crash reports to CM's servers will not feature any device identification information, and that all such data will be deleted on a monthly basis. In addition to the ability to generate a bug report every time a system system application crashes, you can also choose to manually create bug reports from the developer settings menu.
