Cyanogen to shut down on December 31st
Co-founder Steve Kondik had been talking about re-branding CyanogenMod, supported by crowdfunding. Earlier this month, we told you that a software repository in GitHub named Lineage Android Distribution had been filling up with parts of it. While there has been no official announcement about whether this is related, sources close to the situation say that Lineage Android Distribution is part of CyanogenMod's reorganization.
CyanogenMod launched its first release, version 3.1, on July 1st 2009. Over 50 million people run CM on their handsets. As the company winds down, it has been offering CM14.1, based on Android 7.1.
