As you are probably aware, Linus Torvalds had decided to bump the version number of the upcoming Linux kernel to 3.0. The development for Linux 3.0 has been going on for a while with the first release candidate being released on May 30th.The sixth release candidate was supposed to be the last one.
It’s been quite a while (225 days to be exact) since AOSP released the source code for Android 4.0 ICS. Since then, the team over at CyanogenMod has be toiling away to get it onto as many devices as possible, and today they are announcing that 37 devices are now ready to receive the first release candidate.
Pommed v1.32, a minor maintenance release for the 12″ PowerBook G4 was just released. There is also support for the MacBookPro5,4 (15″ June 2009) and the latest wireless keyboard since version 1.31.
If you are at all familiar with the CyanogenMod team then you have some sort of idea how much time and effort goes into building their custom ROM’s. When ICS came out it posed to be a large task to incorporate all the Android 4.0 goodness on top of adding the CM features and injected butter we all have come to enjoy.
