Yeah this is like the 4th or 5th time he's pulled the same exact thing. I stopped caring a while ago. His ROM was my DD on the gnex for 4.1.2. Then he had a twitter comment saying he was merging 4.2 and that was the last we heard from him until he came to the N5 forums.
Now I know, everything here is free and developers don't owe us anything, sure.... But at the same time... You say an update is coming and then stop development and disappear. It is kind of rude to the users. You said there's an update and got everybody waiting all for nothing. If you're going to abandon a project at least have the decency to tell people so they don't keep testing things/report bugs, etc.
He really killed it back in the day. Sucks that he keeps doing this, but CNA has never been very reliable. If he does 'come back' it'll only be a short while and for a couple of releases. Sorry :/
