Let there be Themes!
And so begins the journey with CM12 and the theme engine.  Today we merged ~13,000+ lines of changes to CM12 for themes.  Nightly builds after today should include the theme engine for you all to enjoy.

There are a few things I would like to point out.

1.  Since Lollipop switched from holo to material styles, most, if not all, themes designed for CM11 won't look too great when applied on CM12, unless an app is still using the holo styles.  Keep that in mind as you play around with your existing themes.

2.  This one is extremely important to themers.  Some themes may have bad .9.png images and if that is the case the theme will no longer work.  We were a bit lenient with this situation in CM11 but due to major changes in the way aapt works we can no longer afford to be lenient.  If your theme no longer shows up or it won't install, check logcat to see why.  Most likely it will be a bad or malformed ninepatch.  (see attached screenshot of what you'll see if a bad theme is on your device)

3.  Another one for theme designers.  Currently you cannot have a theme that is designed for CM12 and CM11.  This is an issue with CM11 not knowing what to do with assets such as vector drawables.  I'm looking into a possible patch for CM11 but there will be no guarantee that a user will take the update and they may still experience issues with your theme so please keep this in mind.  The play store will allow you to submit an apk that is targeting CM12 instead of CM11 and it will provide the end user with the correct version.

4.  And another for you theme designers ;).  When designing a theme for CM12, you will need to make sure you specify a targetSdkVersion="21" in your <uses-sdk> tag.  This will let the system know that it was designed for CM12 and not CM11.  We will be updating the template in the coming days so you can use that as a reference.

5.  Play around and let us know what you think!

Forgot to mention that we dropped support for themes based on the T-Mobile theme engine.

LG L90 Nightlies - CM 11

We're in full swing with CM 12 work, but that doesn't mean the bug fixing or changes to CM 11 have stopped yet! 

We're happy to introduce the LG L90 (w7) device to our roster, including support for the  D410 and D410n [1]

Your maintainer is Quarx2k  

[1] The w7 build will also install on D405, D405n, D415 & D415n but full hardware support is not available for these models at this time.

Likely not the '12' you are all waiting for, but good stuff inside and definitely worth the read. 
Taking a breather from all the work on L, we snuck in another M release yesterday against the CM 11.0 (KitKat) branch. This release is less heavy on features,

A message for our Translation community

We've been receiving a lot of requests for translations to begin on CM12 via our Crowdin tool. At this time, we are not ready to accept these translations - we anticipate this status changing sometime next week, and will make an announcement when the Crowdin project is ready. 

We appreciate the enthusiasm and eagerness to get this process started, but ask for patience as we finalize the strings for compatibility with the online tool. 

Thank you!

We're hard at work on CM12 and looking at the lock screen. Do you use custom shortcuts to apps other than the camera on CM 11?"
