With the release of Android 4.4 and new a Nexus phone comes the inevitable announcement from CyanogenMod for those of us that are looking to do a little more with our Android devices. The CM Team has announced that development for CM11 is underway and work has begun porting CM features over to the new Android 4.4 KitKat code base.
A number of CM features have easily survived the code jump from Android 4.3 to Android 4.4. However a few items are going to require a little bit of work such as the lockscreen, Phone app, and of course the CM Launcher, Trebuchet, as those portions of Android have have received extensive enhancements from Google with KitKat.
The initial push of CM11 to GitHub has begun and the CM Team looks for the fun to continue in the very near future. We’ll let you know as soon as the first round of nightlies are available for your flashing needs.
