Xposed Framework 2.4 Exits Beta, Brings Official KitKat Support and Bug Fixes

A little under a week ago, we covered the release of Xposed Framework 2.4 beta. For those just tuning in, 2.4 beta brought one very major change: support for Android 4.4 KitKat. Now just a few days later, XDA Recognized Developer rovo89 has taken 2.4 out of beta and into official circulation.

In addition to bringing official support for Android 4.4, Xposed 2.4 final also brings a few other improvements and bug fixes. Perhaps the most noticeable will be significantly improved framework performance. The UI also received a revamp, as there is now a debug log viewer and diagnostics to verify that Xposed is active and working.

It is important to note that even in version 2.4 final, Xposed is not compatible with the new ART compiler. And at this time, it is unclear if it will ever be made compatible, as it would require a major rewrite if it is even possible at all. So in order to prevent boot loops, the Xposed framework automatically resets you to Dalvik if you accidentally enable ART. And if you do wish to try ART, you will first have to disable the framework entirely.

To get started, simply head over to the application thread. And to learn more about version 2.4, head over to this post detailing all of the changes.
