We’ve now gone through a number of Release Candidates for CM 10.1. One even had a huge data usage bug that had to get another RC just to fix. But tonight, CyanogenMod is posting on their blog that they are rolling out CM 10.1.0 to general release, thus ending the Release Candidate phase.
The CyanogenMod 10.1.0 files will begin piling up on their servers as the build bot finishes them up, as usual. The list of devices will be the same devices that have Release Candidates to date. Which means the Nexus 4, 7, 10, all the Galaxy Nexus variants, all the Galaxy S4 variants and many others. This is a pretty big release for the CM team. They are saying that all the Tegra 2 and Exynos powered devices are going to be absent from this release. And they’ll be providing a status report for these devices later on in the week.
So after a point release, what’s next for CM 10.1? Well the team is saying that once the code is finalized they’ll return to their M-release cycle and work towards adding additional functionality and features. Which includes the new Privacy Guard/Incognito mode which is going to start rolling out in tonights nightly. There’s also that new camera feature which we showed you earlier today.
CyanogenMod says they have plenty other exciting things planned for the rest of the year and to just wait and see. I thought CyanogenMod would know by now that we are not patient people? Oh well.
CM 10.1.0 should be rolling out tonight and you should see it tomorrow or tonight depending on your timezone. Once you get the point release, let us know in the comments below how you like or dislike it the update for CyanogenMod 10.1. This is a big release, and for those that don’t like living on the bleeding edge that is nightlies.
