Last couple of weeks at LineageOS

Written on April 4, 2017 by harryyoud

Welcome to LineageOS’ biweekly review, where we go over changes in the last couple of weeks

April Fool’s

We’re glad so many of you have enjoyed (and fallen for) our April Fool’s antics.

To be absolutely clear:

  • VoLTE is the name of our (temporary) mascot (who is retiring on Friday). If you haven’t seen it yet, check out our blog post.
  • br0zip is a harmless just-for-fun app shipping on LineageOS 14.1 builds from 3rd April to 7th April (Disclaimer: It does not actually produce functional ROMs)
  • VoLTE, our mascot, is also in the bootanimation on LineageOS 14.1 builds from 3rd April to 7th April

Major changes since 20th March

  • Wiki refresh! Our wiki now has a brand new material design, courtesy of Aykut Yilmaz. We’ve also made the URLs a bit prettier and reorganised a few pages. Check it out
  • New gallery app
    • Easier navigation between timeline, albums and videos
    • Fullscreen video playback
  • Made LineageOS Updater more reliable. It should no longer corrupt or break downloads under certain circumstances
  • New floating button in the Recorder app: You can now choose when to begin a screen recording. Pressing record will create a floating view, from which you can begin the recording.
  • YOLO
