The developers behind the CyanogenMod operating system have been working on a custom version of Android based on Google Android 4.0 for months. CyanogenMod Alpha builds are already available for dozens of phones and tablets. But now the team is getting ready to launch a stable version of CyanogenMod 9.
According to a post on the CyanogenMod blog, the team has started a code freeze to prepare for the official launch of CM9.
Update: CyanogenMod 9 Release Candidate 1 is now available for some devices.
The code freeze basically means that we won’t see many new features added to the operating system between now and the launch of the first release candidate. Instead, developers will be working to fix bugs and compatibility issues.
We should start seeing release candidates in the next few weeks.
