Lineage OS Biweekly update till 31st May. Changes and features

Lineage OS is the world’s most widely used custom ROM. Lineage OS was previously known as CyanogenMod but Cyanogen broke down and the company had too announce that they are officially shutting off.

Since the introduction of Lineage OS back in January, it has become a good successor to Cyanogen. The company usually releases Biweekly updates about what is happening in Lineage OS team, what are they working on, what are the new devices and development happening around. Now Lineage OS has released another Biweekly update to us. This update includes development till 31st May. It talks about after 15th May to 31st May.

Official changelog:

  • Some sensitive numbers are no longer written to the call log
    • In the EU, some numbers are intentionally not shown on phone bills, in order to allow hotlines dealing with domestic violence or similar situations to be called with confidence
    • In LineageOS, a list of particular numbers (available to view here – this will be continually updated) will no longer be written to the call log viewable in the Dialer app
    • We would appreciate if you know of any other sensitive numbers in your country – particularly those dealing with child abuse, domestic abuse, or sexual assault hotlines – to submit these to Gerrit, in a similar fashion to these commits: Brazil, Bangladesh, Turkey, US
  • Small Jelly tweaks and improvements
    • Support ‘desktop mode’ – for viewing sites as a desktop browser would see them
    • The page is no longer re-rendered when the device is rotated
    • Incognito mode has been improved: it no longer stores cookies, and now shows an indicator to let you know when you are in incognito mode
  • WiFi is now enabled on first boot after a factory reset, preventing a crash in our Setup Wizard further in the setup
  • AudioFX should now be much more responsive, and free of some of the lag suffered when moving between various effects
  • The customisable right lockscreen shortcut now has identical behaviour and appearance to the left one, so no longer appears black, and correctly inherits the icon’s primary colour as the background
  • A potential memory leak and/or memory corruption exploit with our recent su hide patches (which you can read more about in our last changelog post) has been fixed
