CyanogenMod 12.1 With Android 5.1.1 Goes Stable Alongside CM 11.0 And 12.0 Security Releases

CyanogenMod has changed a lot over the years, but we're still seeing custom ROMs pumped out. The 12.1 release is the latest one to go stable. It offers users the ability to run Android 5.1.1, IMAP idle support, and SDK v1.

CyanogenMod has also pushed out new stable builds for versions 11.0 and 12.0. These are security releases that address a number of security issues, including Stagefright. Get the update not for new features but to make sure that your phone or tablet is safe.

Builds are only available for devices where maintainers have marked builds as 'Good to go.' So if the gadget you're holding isn't yet on the list, you will have to be patient or opt to install one of the pre-release builds instead.

First And Last CyanogenMod 12 (Android 5.0) Snapshot Builds Now Rolling Out, Final CM11 Snapshots Too

If you've been waiting for a more stable version of the CyanogenMod ROM to become available before upgrading to Android 5.0, now's your chance. Snapshot builds of CM 12 are now rolling off of the build server and onto the CyanogenMod download page, going in their usual alphabetical order by codename. These are the first snapshot versions of CyanogenMod 12, and according to members of the CM 12 team, they'll also be the last.

Snapshots are among the more stable releases of the community ROM, more so than the monthly "M" builds (which are pretty reliable themselves, at least compared to one-off efforts you might see on standard user forums).

Firefox 38 Goes Stable With A New Welcome Screen, Numerous Minor Visual Tweaks, And More

Firefox Beta exists in the Play Store as a separate app that's open to the public, but regardless, there comes a time when things should go stable. For Firefox 38, now's that time.

As you would expect, version 38 comes with a number of new features. In addition to the changes we detailed in the past, this release also greets users with a redesigned launch screen. The old pop-up has been replaced with a landing page that is inherently less jarring.

While we're talking visuals, the developers have provided the browser with an ever-so-slightly more material look.

Android Studio v1.1 Promoted To Stable Channel, v1.2 Will Bring Big New Features From IntelliJ 14

December brought us many gifts, not least of which was the official release of Android Studio v1.0. While things have been fairly quiet for developers sticking to Stable releases, the Android Tools team has been busy with a steady stream of updates for those of us on the Canary builds. After two months in development, v1.1 is finally ready to roll out to the masses. This version is mostly dedicated to bug fixes, but there are a few features added in test builds that will feel new to users that are just now receiving the update.

Changelog: (from the Android Studio 1.1 Beta post)

  • Support for version 1.1 of the Android Gradle plugin (now available as a release candidate)
  • Improved support for unit testing.

VLC For Android Gets A New Play Store Listing For Version 1.0, Original App Regains Beta Status

Following the Android version of popular media app Video LAN Client, better known as VLC, is getting a little tricky. The Android build officially exited its beta status a couple of months ago, but now it's been split into two separate apps on the Play Store. The original app (the one installed on your phone or tablet if you've been using it for a while) is now the "beta" version again, and a new listing without the beta tag has been added.

Minecraft Pocket Edition's Massive 0.9.0 Update Goes Stable, Brings In Infinite Worlds And Loads Of New Content

Early last month Mojang bumped the Minecraft Pocket Edition beta up to version 0.9.0, and the team crammed everything into the release, including the kitchen sink (though you may have to build it yourself). Now that release is going stable. The latest app update brings all of the new content to users who weren't aware of or adventurous enough to journey into the beta.

This release introduces infinite worlds, new environments, and loads of new blocks. There are new enemies to tend with, but the update provides players with another means of staying alive - the option to tame a wolf to serve as their loyal ally.

CyanogenMod 10.2 (Android 4.3) Stable Builds Are Now Rolling Out

ROM news for the last month or so have been focused on KitKat, but if you prefer your customized Android software in a more reliable flavor, Cyanogen has you covered. CyanogenMod 10.2, the CM build of Jelly Bean 4.3, just landed on the download page. You can stroll over there right now and get your Android 4.3 on.

CyanogenMod stable builds are the most reliable and complete packages offered by the custom ROM team, and generally have no bugs or incompatibilities (or at least no more than the standard AOSP builds). They're generally preferable to nightlies or release candidates.

Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini 3G Version Gets Official CyanogenMod Support, CM 10.1.3 Stable Build Is Already Posted

The CyanogenMod team has already granted official ROM support for the LTE version of Samsung's diminutive Galaxy S4 Mini, and now the international 3G variant gets a chance. The first build for the S4 Mini 3G was posted to Get.CM on Friday night, but if you're waiting for a bleeding-edge build, you're going to be disappointed. It's CyanogenMod 10.1, based on Android 4.2, which is what the S4 Mini runs under TouchWiz.

On the other hand, the first ROM out of the gate is a stable build, which is something of a rarity for CyanogenMod. This release is CM 10.1.3, the latest and last full release based on Android 4.2.2.
