The times top up to the getaway have been a authentic roller coaster journey for Cyanogen lovers. Yesterday, Cyanogen Inc. unceremoniously pulled the plug on its guidance for CyanogenOS in a small put up declaring that “all expert services and Cyanogen-supported nightly builds will be discontinued” by the year’s close.
In a put up these days titled “A Fork in the Street,” the group driving CyanogenMod acknowledged that the pre-getaway announcement proficiently amounts to a “death blow” for their own project.
“In addition to infrastructure becoming retired, we in the CM community have shed our voice in the long run course of CM – the brand name could be sold to a third bash entity as it was an asset that Kondik risked to start his business enterprise and dream,” the group wrote in a put up. “Even if we ended up to regroup and rebuild our own infrastructure, continuing advancement of CM would imply to work with the threat of sale of the brand name looming about our heads.”
But although lots of in the community ended up caught off-guard by yesterday’s curt announcement, the CyanogenMod group has seemingly been operating difficult on a system B. Phrase of Lineage began cropping up a several weeks back, following Cyanogen Inc. unceremoniously separated severed ties with co-founder and @cyanogen Twitter deal with haver, Steve Kondik.
Now Lineage is official. In its put up, the CyanogenMod group insists that it’s more than just a rebranding exertion. “This fork will return to the grassroots community exertion that used to define CM although sustaining the expert high-quality and dependability you have come to expect more lately,” it writes.
For now, it’s readily available as supply code about on Github, but we’ll hopefully be observing one thing more official as group regroups and the new calendar year rolls all-around.
