Android 4.4.3 hit Nexus devices last week, and now the Paranoid Android folks are hard at work packing the latest version of KitKat into their custom ROM. Today they're ready to show off the fruits of their labor in the form of the first release candidate for Paranoid Android 4.4.

This release includes not only the goodies found in 4.4.3 but a few other niceties as well. Users will get to experience changes made to Hover. For those who don't remember this impressive notification enhancement, here's a video from the feature's earlier days.

In addition, the developers will maintain compatibility with the upstream CyanogenMod Theme Engine. The Paranoid OTA app also has a brighter, bolder new design.

To download the latest version, just head over to the Paranoid Android website and look for the correct link for your device. People jumping up from the previous release will need to flash a new bootloader, radio, and gapps, then update to the latest recovery before proceeding.
