BBQLog Brings CM Nightly Changes Straight to You

Change logs are definitely one of the most important parts of any release. Be it an app, ROM, kernel, mod, tweak, script, you name it; releasing a change log with each new release allows users to see what you’ve changed, fixed, added, and subtracted from prior versions. Often, it’s the very first developer-to-user interaction, and a well thought out change log can ease the minds of the cautious and give users compelling reason to upgrade. Fans of CyanogenMod nightlies probably know the value of the change logs even more so than most other ORDers, as they receive substantial updates rather frequently.

Enter BBQlog. Released by XDA Senior Member peterperfect along with the team behind the previously covered OpenDESIGN project, BBQlog is a third-party website that gives you the change log for CyanogenMod Nightlies. While many users are asking what is the big deal, as that information is typically already made readily available, the catch is where they pull the updates from. Instead of using CyanogenMod Gerrit, which is the more popular way to show the change log, BBQlog pulls its change log stats straight from the GIT. This means it shows every single little change, unedited. It’s much like buying the “Not Rated” version of a movie. You get the movie, plus all the stuff they didn’t show you in theaters. Additionally, the BBQlog team is currently working on an Android app that’ll push all this information directly to your Android phone.

While it isn’t an official CyanogenMod project, it’s still quite useful nonetheless for users and developers alike. For the link to the website, the full list of credits, and more, visit the original thread.

Once again, we have arrived on the most magical of holidays - the annual unveiling of HalfLife 3, and day on which co-workers believe it is appropriate to duct tape air horns behind doors.
