LineageOS 13, based on Android Marshmallow, is now discontinued

CyanogenMod 13, based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow, first arrived in November 2015. It was soon switched to Android 6.0.1, and continued to be the main branch of CyanogenMod until version 14.1 was released one year later. After the CyanogenMod community re-organized into LineageOS, the distribution was renamed to LineageOS 13.

At this point, most of the devices that had LineageOS 13 have either been updated to v14.1, or dropped entirely (usually due to inactive maintainers).

LineageOS adds support for Xperia Z5, international Galaxy S6, and more

The last time we covered LineageOS, the project had started supporting seven new phones, including the Xperia Z5 Compact and LG K10. Since then, several additional devices have been added to the official build roster. These include the Sony Xperia Z5, Samsung Galaxy S6, and Redmi 3S/3X.

Before we get to the new devices, there were a few developments in the LineageOS community worth mentioning. Official builds for the HTC One M9 were added back in early January, but only one version (dated January 10) was uploaded.

LineageOS turns one year old

CyanogenMod was the most popular custom ROM for years, with many other major ROMs being based on CM. However, the project came to an abrupt end last year, when Cyanogen Inc shut down (it reorganized into an autonomous tech company earlier this year). Most of the CyanogenMod community, which never received much support from Cyanogen Inc in the first place, reorganized under the ‘Lineage’ name.

Yesterday (December 24) marks exactly one year since the formation of Lineage.
