LineageOS Changelog 18: Per-app Network Restrictions, Incognito Mode In Keyboard, Reader Mode & More


LineageOS is the most popular custom ROM, and to make it easier for users to understand the new changes, the LineageOS team occasionally puts together the list of changes which have been made after a specified date. LineageOS published the last changelog on April Fools'day. It's been almost two months since, and LineageOS have now published a changelog mentioning the changes which have been made after April 1.

Here's the changelog:

Changelog


  • It’s now possible to restrict WiFi and / or mobile data usage for each app

  • Dialer can now enable Do Not Disturb during calls to avoid notification sounds while you're in a call
  • Reader mode can now tweak your display to make documents and long texts easier to read
  • Trebuchet now has smarter apps suggestions in the drawer. These will change during the day and whenever you plug in the headphones
  • Trebuchet can also put legacy app icons into an adaptive icon box
  • Jelly has a new “reach mode” that moves the top url / search bar to the bottom for easier reachability

Supported Devices


LineageOS have added ten devices to their official roster. These include:




Samsung's Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge have been dropped from the LineageOS 14.1 device list "due to the licensing issues of the device trees".

Miscellaneous Changes



LineageOS have made their CVE Tracker page private. CVE, Common Vulnerabilities and Exposure, Tracker mentioned the patches which had been merged for a particular device. The page currently lacks automatic updation and as a result it had to be manually updated by the device maintainer. However, the page wasn't updated as frequently, and this meant that the CVE Tracker wasn't up-to-date. The tracker has been made private until it can be updated automatically.

LineageOS' Project Directors have adopted a Code of Conduct to enhance the public image of the project and encourage efforts from contributors. Lastly, LineageOS have updated their privacy policy to be in line with the European Union's GDPR which went into effect yesterday.
