It’s been a short while since our April LuneOS stable build, “Café au lait”, but we’re very pleased to already present you our latest monthly stable release, Café Bombón or “Bombón” in short. As you can imagine our release notes are not very long, but we’ve still been able to make solid progress on a number of features which have been in the works for quite some time now and there is more to come in the next releases!
The key highlights for this month are rotation/orientation support in the UI, including rotation lock and the capability to send SMS messages directly to a number once entered (non-contacts). We were able to get the build for the Nexus 7 (2012 WiFi) version a.k.a. Grouper working again! There is one little caveat: It will only start to work from the 2nd boot!
More good news on the emulator front as well: We’ve found the cause for the serious performance issues, it should run a lot better now!
Grab your Nexus 4, HP TouchPad, Nexus 7 (2012 WiFi) or emulator and load up our latest builds!
