CyanogenMod’s user base has been growing at a break neck speed. Once a new version of Android is released to AOSP by Google, the Android community impatiently waits for CM nightlies to start rolling out for their Android devices.
However, the official CM nightlies take quite sometime to roll-out, which leads many developers to kang the CM’s gerrit and release unofficial CM builds. Also, there is a gap of quite a few months between the official nightly builds and the first RC or stable release from the CM team.
Keeping this in mind, the CyanogenMod team has announced that it will be doing M-Series build monthly. The ‘M’ does not stand for anything in particular here. The CM team will be releasing a new ‘M’ build at the starting of every month.
Before the starting of every month, the CM team will soft-freeze the codebase in order to ensure no new buggy features are added that affect the stability of the M-series builds. Another popular ROM, AOKP, has been doing similar ‘Milestone’ releases from time to time ever since Ice Cream Sandwich.
The first M-series build are already available for download, and is available for most of the popular Android devices including the Galaxy S3, Galaxy Nexus, Galaxy S2 (I9100G), Nexus S, Nexus 7 and more.
