Cyanogen shutting down services and builds by the end of the year.
Cyanogen Being an open source operating system for smartphones and tablet computers, based on the Android mobile platform. Developed as free and open source software based on the official releases of Android by Google. With added original and third-party code. Based on a rolling release development model.
There has been Quite a Discussion Between Android Developers And Android Modding Geeks .About the Shutdown of Their services by December 31 2016.
But wait!! Repositories hint that CyanogenMod’s new name will be Lineage(LAOS).
Both Cyanogen And CyanogenMod have split ways.Which means that the community-driven Android ROM-editing project will have to go through some major changes.To survive Due to some Financial And Legal Glitches.As Co-founder Steve Kondik recently Left CyanoMod.
Sources said that internally the name used for the project is either Laos/LAOS (Lineage Android Operating System) or Lineage Android Distribution.A software repository at GitHub with the name Lineage Android Distribution.It’s filling up with parts of Cyanogen.And those in the know say that this is indeed part of the reorganization.
In the ongoing saga of Cyanogen’s “reorganization” efforts, we’ve seen Kirk McMaster being ousted as CEO and replaced by Lior Tal.Followed by a modular OS announcement, then we started hearing rumbles of layoffs, office closures, and more.Which ended with a rather public finger pointing and break up with Steve Kondik.The guy behind Cyano and CyanoMod.
*They Announced the Shut down in a very short Blogpost stating.
“As part of the ongoing consolidation of Cyanogen.All services and Cyanogen-supported nightly builds will discontinue no later than 12/31/16. The open source project and source code will remain available for anyone who wants to build CyanogenMod personally.”
Well This is it Adiós Cyanogenmod!!
