Focal Added to CyanogenMod 10.2 Nightlies
Thanks to the hard work of CyanogenMod’s development team, a slew of devices are now able to run Project Nemesis Phase 1: Focal. CyanogenMod developer Guillaume Lesniak (XDA Recognized Developer XpLoDWilD) announced July 29 that the new camera application was pushed to the official CyanogenMod repositories, and to CM-10.2 builds. Although possible to build Focal for CM-10.1, Lesniak said the team will not be supporting it due to their significant progress with 10.2.
Even though Focal still has quite a few bugs to work out, the new features will surely whet your appetite until it is 100 percent stable. Lesniak said they are aware of all bugs and asked that users not report their findings until otherwise notified. He also said they will not be providing support to unofficial builds and those that are not running CyanogenMod.
While there are no plans to publish Focal on the Play Store, many XDA users have already extracted the APK in order to make it available to everyone. Since its release, device-specific threads containing the Focal.apk file have been popping up all over XDA.

Getting an upgrade is a big deal to us power users: it’s our little Android Christmas, where after a long time (for plenty of us, at least)...
The Note 4 never had the fastest Recents Menu, and despite its 3GB of RAM, its app-holding capabilities only got worse on Lollipop. The infamous RAM bug that plagued the S6 is indeed an annoyance on the Note 4's 5.0.X ROMs. Rumors of an update to fix all of this were confirmed with the first reports of the 5.1.1 update for the Russian Note 4, which seemingly improved the Recents Menu and RAM management. But it'll be a long time...
