LineageOS Changelog #12 Brings Updates to Jelly, Quick Tiles and More

Every two weeks, the LineageOS team releases a biweekly changelog to highlight the most significant changes made over that time period. The team has just released 12th changelog and they’ve introduced some interesting additions.

The most important project in the last few weeks is Jelly. The recent, small browser is slowly getting new functionality. Jelly is now scanning for new files when a download is completed, and a notification is shown. Incognito mode now opens new tabs as incognito tabs, and Jelly can also open links in external apps, like YouTube. Form data like usernames (not passwords) is now saved by default, you can enable a “Do not track” option, search suggestions have become available, and there’s also support for Safe Browsing.

In the other news, the sensitive numbers list has been expanded to include Greece, Taiwan, and Ukraine, while country detection for the Czech Republic has been fixed and Brazil, France, Portugal and the UK have new numbers included.

Media codecs have been updated. The Battery Saver QS tile has been removed, as this functionality is already available in the main Battery QS tile. Additionally, custom tiles have now been integrated into the framework to allow for deeper integration with the system, and mimic behavior from older versions as the team plans to port new tiles soon.

As for build roster changes, some devices are now added to the list. Unfortunately, the team decided to suspend the support for LG L90 and Moto G4. Below is the full list of changes.

Added 14.1 devices

Readded 14.1 devices

Suspended 14.1 devices

We expect more news to come from the spiritual successor of the CyanogenMod soon. You can download the newest builds from the official website, which now shows sha256 and sha1 checksums instead of md5. Weather providers are now available on the extras page.
