The latest M-series build has been released by Cyanogen. This one has arrived as CM 11.0 M7 and it brings support for what appears to be a little more than 50 devices. Perhaps equally important here, CM 11.0 M7 also brings some new features.
As far as Sony is concerned, Android 4.4 for the Xperia SP is still under investigation. But even if the manufacturer decides to scrap that plan, owners could still enjoy Android 4.4 KitKat as long as they choose to give up the stock ROM and switch over to CyanogenMod's unstable nightly releases.
