CyanogenMod Moving Focus From Android 4.3 to Android 4.4 KitKat

CyanogenMod recently published a post updating its plans for building on the Android 4.3 Jelly Bean code. The company said that, with the release of the latest CyanogenMod 10.2.0 build, it will officially “end [its] foray into Android 4.3-land and planned releases based on that code.” In other words, future builds will look to Android 4.4 KitKat and beyond.

Don’t fret if you’re still on a Jelly Bean device with CyanogenMod, however. The firm promises to continue to provide security patches, hot fixes, and other updates that will continue to improve the experience; it’s just moving most of its eggs from one basket to another. “As we’ve done with similar ‘end of branch’ releases, this marks the point where the team will shift focus solely to CM 11 and Android 4.4 KitKat code,” CyanogenMod said. “CM 10.2 nightlies will continue and as we ramp up CM 11 nightlies, device maintainers will signal which devices are ready to make that jump as well.”

This is good news for CyanogenMod fans, and we can’t wait to get CM 11 up and running on some newer Android 4.4 KitKat devices soon. Hit the source below for more information.
