I've seen that some galaxy devices have a home-build type OmniROM besides their usual nightlies with multi-window and the new theme engine enabled. Is anybody doing something similar for our beloved Nexus? A pretty thorough search through the threads resulted in disappointment with myself for not being knowledgeable enough to compile it myself.

the multi window is a feature of some galaxy devices, its not possible on the nexus 5. it would also need samsungs framework, which isnt open source. omni is built on open source.

Omni has their own implementation of multi window, which is not enabled by default. Check it out:

I don't think the version matters that much. The point is: some galaxy devices have up-to-date builds with functional multi window (more or less, i suppose it's still very buggy) and I can't find anything similar for our device which is supposed to have a bigger community behind it.

I want to clarify that I don't take anything for granted and I am very thankful for the already great development scene. It's just a question which crossed my mind recently.
