CyanogenMod 9 almost finished, code freeze is underway
CyanogenMod is far and away the most popular custom ROM for Android. The down side of being so popular is that ever since Google introduced Ice Cream Sandwich to the world there has been a huge number of eyes watching and waiting for the Android 4.0-based version of CyanogenMod, CM9. The CyanogenMod team has, by their own admission, taken a much longer time getting version 9 out, citing the difficulties they had moving their custom code to Ice Cream Sandwich. In a way we suppose this paints a more sympathetic picture for how long it is taking Android OEM’s to get their ICS updates out, since the CM team regularly beats OEMs with new releases.

Either way, the wait is almost over, as the CyanogenMod team announced that they have started to freeze the code ahead of releasing a stable CM9 release. Nightly builds with new features will continue to be available to the more daring among you, while the less adventurous can install the stable release, which should be largely bug free.

The full statement by the CM team is:

Linaro doesn't make ROMs for devices, the work on the code to release more optimized code for developers not user -.-

You realize Linaro can and most probably will be integrated into Cyanogenmod right? Linaro is not a ROM, it's just an optimised code tha can be used in other ROMs
