LineageOS ends central Nougat builds as Pie support approaches

LineageOS is one of a many renouned tradition ROMs available, with somewhere around two million active installations. It typically takes a while for a plan to refurbish to newer versions of Android, given growth is mostly finished by maintainers in their gangling time. Six months after a open recover of Android 9 Pie, it looks like LineageOS is about prepared to make a burst — though not before dropping comparison devices.

A new dedicate with a pretension “Prepare for 16.0,” referencing LineageOS 16 (which will be formed on Pie), was joined into a project’s build server formula progressing today. New updates for inclination using LineageOS 15.1 (Oreo) inclination will now come weekly, instead of on a daily basis, while all builds for inclination still on LineageOS 14.1 (Nougat) have been halted.

For reference, here are all a Nougat inclination that will no longer accept central Lineage builds:

The above list contains dozens of renouned devices, including village favorites like a Nexus 7 2013, strange Moto G, Nexus 5, and Xiaomi Mi 4. It’s a contrition they won’t be receiving central builds any longer, though many of them had a good run.

The Motorola Photon Q and Droid 4 were both expelled in 2012, and interjection to LineageOS (and their device maintainers), they still have a latest confidence patches. Two of my possess inclination — a Xiaomi Mi 4c and Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 — sadly done a list.

It shouldn’t be prolonged now until LineageOS 16.0 is released. Are we excited?
