Cyanogenmod 11 M6 now available

By | May 5, 2014


CyanogenMod 11 M6 now available! Along with it are few notes from the CM development  team, including that the “M” builds have overthrow the need for “stable” firmware release. (And that is why you will not be seeing “RC” builds either.) Why is that exactly? Read what said according to the CM blog post:

Like the ‘stables’ before it, ‘M’ releases are built off the ‘stable/CM-##.#’ branches – the only difference is now frequency and label. We could have chosen to remove ‘M’ releases and stick with the ‘stable’ tag instead for these monthlies, but the word ‘stable’ itself is a misnomer – it doesn’t mean bug free and it certainly never meant feature complete; but with the name ‘stable’ it gave the false impression that it did mean those things – especially to those risk-adverse that would only hop from ‘stable’ to ‘stable’.

CyanogenMod team also says the target is to get releases out almost every 2 weeks going ahead. Now, on to the changelog and download link!
