- And more (all changes from Mar 29th to April 30th)
In addition, the CyanogenMod team will be replacing Stable and Release Candidate versions with monthly (later bi-weekly) Milestone releases. They will offer more frequently updated, stable versions of CM to use, while those looking for the ultimate in being up-to-date can still download the experimental Nightly releases at the risk of stability problems.

GS3 cm11 users like me are going through hell! There has been a random UI reboot bug and The CM team has not fixed it. It has been there since the last 12 versions!

Yeah give me money! Why should I buy a phone the price of a super PC? I find the LG G Pad the best deal apart from Nexus(not available in most countries though). Superb built quality, S600, Adreno 320, FullHD, microsd, Android KitKat, good battery life for such a low price! And built from LG!! I have one and it's awesome! Why pay more when you can have almost same specs for less and that from a renowned manufacturer not some Chinese copies! Sorry for the ad, but I just love my G Pad :)

Same here with my S III. That's why I suggest you stick to Cyanogenmod 10.2 with Nova launcher for now. Yeah I know TouchWiz has been updated to 4.3 Jelly bean, but I can't stand it.

Gave Resurrection Remix a try? It contains a boatload of features and above that, amazing battery life plus it is bug free and stable.

People still use old phones yet complain Cyanogenmod 11 doesn't work right on there. Upgrade to something newer or keep dealing with some things not working or some features causing the rom to crash or lag. Go from Galaxy S3 to something newer.

Duh, thats the point of flashing a custom rom. To make your device updated even tho its one or two year older or if support stops. I have a Xperia sola waay back in 2012 and still experiencing the goodness of Kitkat.

isn't that the point of custom roms? the mod community? the awesomeness of free community? Is somewhere out there will do it....for free. Of course not the person 'complaining' but someone out there right?

The latest CM11 M6 seems to run just fine on my good old Captivate (AT&T Galaxy S). Sorry for the S3 guys, but I'm just curious why this kind of discrepancy with an older unit working fine and a newer one with issues? I know there are lots of phones to test and customize for, but at some point it seems to me that the list of supported phones has to get cut down and use CM resources more effectively. Get the older phones like mine to a decent version that is more or less stable and cut them off after say 3-4 years.
