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 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 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.
HALO beta dropped late last week and it looks like we have another update this week. In short, HALO has been released as an open source offering. The Paranoid Android team has spelled out the details on Google+ and along with the open source news they have included a reminder about how HALO is still in beta.
CyanogenMod 10.1 RC1 dropped earlier in the month. The RC1 release brought an initial support for roughly 40 devices with talk about how it would be "one of (if not the last) milestone releases before a 10.1.0 is pushed out.” With that in mind, CyanogenMod 10.1 RC2 ended up coming available about a week later and as of today, RC3 is available for download.
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.
OUYA game console release was previously delayed until June 25th, however that doesn't seem to have stopped those who have one of the already available developer units. We know the OUYA team is friendly towards hacking and modding. In fact, they previously announced a MakerBot partnership that will allow users to create their own cases. More to the point for today though, those developers have already released a working version of CWM Recovery.
CyanogenMod 10.1 RC1 was released last week. At that time the CyanogenMod folks mentioned that a final release was approaching quickly. There wasn't any timeline given, however it looks like today has brought things one step closer to that final release being available. As of today, CyanogenMod 10.1 RC2 is now available for download.
