Xposed Framework 2.6 Brings Radically Improved UI, Downloader Tweaks, Framework Improvements, and More!

As we all know by now, XDA Senior Recognized Developer rovo89‘s Xposed Framework is one of the most significant pieces of cross-device development in recent memory. With Xposed, users looking to tweak their devices no longer have to decompile, modify, and recompile system applications. Rather, they can simply load Xposed framework and a purpose-built module to replace any method in any class at runtime.

Through the use of Xposed and its modules, we no longer need subpar modified “stock” ROMs that offer only basic tweaks.  In fact, Xposed and its modules are so important that we recently created a dedicated Xposed Framework and modules forum here on XDA.

As is the case with all major development projects, Xposed has grown quite a bit in the past couple of years since its inception. It’s evolved to retain compatibility with newer OS builds, and will even be reworked to be compatible with the alternate ART runtime in the not too distant future.

Earlier today, rovo89 unveiled Xposed Framework 2.6, and it brings quite a few important tweaks and additions. While today is not the day for ART compatibility, version 2.6 packs quite a healthy punch. This includes a brand new, cards-based UI that was contributed by XDA Forum Moderator GermainZ. Xposed 2.6 also brings improvements to the built-in module downloader, which now allows users to filter by release type (i.e. stable or beta). In addition, version 2.6 packs internal framework tweaks to improve compatibility and performance, and this new release is able to detect and prompt users about known issues. Finally, XDA Recognized Themer DD-Ripper contributed a shiny new logo, which can also be seen as rovo89‘s profile image.

All in all, today is a very good day for Xposed users everywhere. Head over to the Xposed Changelog thread to learn more and download the latest build.
