LineageOS 16.0
The next iteration of LineageOS is already in the works, and thanks to the massive amount of cleanup and refactoring we did for LineageOS 15.1 the transition is the smoothest one yet. All our features should be much easier to re-introduce, since most of them require almost no work to port from Oreo to Pie.
As always: we won’t be giving any ETAs, but good things (including LineageOS 16.0) come to those who wait!
Summer Survey 2
The second Summer Survey has ended and we’re reading all your feedbacks. Once we’re done we’ll post the results as we did last year.
We’d like to thank all those who submitted their feedbacks, your contribution is really appreciated and it’ll help shape the development of the pie-based builds.
Lineage Engineering
The Lineage Engineering initiative may have been slowed down due to the Pie bringup process, but it’s still in the works: this week we’ve published an article written by npjohnson about Qualcomm’s Chain of Trust.
If you’re interested in discovering what happens on a Qualcomm device from the very beginning of the boot process up to the point when Android is loaded, give it a shot.
