CyanogenMod delivers Google Voice messages to stock message app

If you happen to be a Google Voice user and running CyanogenMod there is now a way to have all your messages delivered through the stock messaging app. Or for that matter, have those Google Voice text messages delivered to the third party messaging app of your choice. This method has been detailed by Koushik Dutta of ClockworkMod fame and doesn't appear to be all that difficult to setup.

CyanogenMod 10.1 Release Candidate phase draws to a close

Some good news has arrived for those who have been waiting for stable release of CyanogenMod 10.1.0.

CyanogenMod incognito mode currently in development

CyanogenMod may soon be getting a new privacy feature. Said feature is called "Run in Incognito Mode" and it is being described as a "simple privacy feature designed to help you keep your personal data under control."

CyanogenMod may offer a “heavily privacy-focused” version

Nothing has been officially announced just yet, however it looks like the CyanogenMod team is considering another fork of the ROM. The details are coming by way of Steve Kondik who recently hit up Google+ with talk of security. The talk began with mention of the CYAN-28 issue, which dealt with the "revoke app permissions" feature that was found in earlier builds of Cyanogen. This particular feature was included back in the CM7 days and judging from the "Won't Fix" closing this issue recently received, it looks like it will not be coming back anytime soon.
