Mostly stable builds, but not quite ready for release
M5 builds of CM 11 are getting trickling out to servers over at CyanogenMod, Inc according to a blog post from the folks over at CyanogenMod. They give a little insight on why some Galaxy S3 and Galaxy S4 devices were left out (spoiler: one release won't work well on every phone) but we're told not to worry. Here's the short list of changes:
- Trebuchet – Fix last icon from hotseat disappearing
- Trebuchet – Fix custom home transition effect
- Volume Panel – Increase opacity of transparency (previous level led to visibility concerns)
- WhisperPush – Relocate to Privacy menu
- WhisperPush – fix NPE on viewing identity if unregistered
- Translations – Initial imports from CrowdIn (followup blog post next week)
- MultiSim – Additional support patches (25+)
- Privacy Guard – Additional AppOps permissions
- Additional Right-to-left (RTL) layout mirroring support
- Settings – Add ‘screen color’ support
- Quickboot support (device specific)
- Stylus – Fix eraser being disabled by palm rejection
- NavBar – Allow toggle in runtime (needs kernel support)
- Add ethernet icon support to status bar
- Dialer – Open Source forward/backward/incoming look-up
Look for the build for your device on the download page as they make their way through the system.
