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. The Cyanogen team has announced the end of the Release Candidate phase which means things will be shifting towards the stable releases. The updated general release CyanogenMod 10.1.0 builds should be arriving very shortly, but that does bring the question as to which devices will be supported.

CyanogenMod update could bring a Quick Settings Camera app

The folks at CyanogenMod are currently reviewing a new feature. This one brings the camera to the Quick Settings menu shade. Basically, using this feature you will be able to pull down the shade and snap a picture. This feature has been developed by Nebojsa Cvetkovic and from the way it looks, users will be able to capture an image with just two quick taps.

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." The feature is being worked on by Steve Kondik and as we always see with CyanogenMod updates -- there hasn't been any sort of release timeframe given.

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.

CyanogenMod 10.1 nightlies arrive for the T-Mobile GALAXY S 4

We had previously seen details of CyanogenMod 10.1 running on the T-Mobile version of the GALAXY S 4. As of today however, it looks like we now have word that the nightly builds are available for those who want to begin playing. The details are coming by way of Steve Kondik who recently made mention that the T-Mobile GALAXY S 4 nightlies have arrived and that they will be porting CM10.1 to other variants when they get the devices.
