No such thing as CM11S nightlies.

Only CM11 nightlies, which are located here: https://download.cyanogenmod.org/?device=bacon

CM11S is an outdated CM11 ROM meant to be an official OEM release. It comes with Hexo CM11 theme.

CM11 updates every night, bug fixes fixed real-time pushed to you every day.

CM11S isn't really "outdated" its just the most stable release that passes the QA (Quality Assurance) test and is certified by Google.
CM11 more or less gives you a preview of what will be available in the next OTA. You can add your CM11S apps onto CM11 nightlies. http://www.cmxlog.com/11/bacon/ for the changelog.

To OP, you could have simply Google searched your answer.... next time please do that.

Only reason why I call it outdated is because when CM11 had the latest touch fix to fix ghost touches, I'm all up to my friends saying "THE TOUCHES FEELS SO GOOD U SHOULD TRY IT OH WAIT HAHAHAH".... Yeah... I'm weird.

Well... to be fair, you can use CM11S and use a custom kernel to have the new touchscreen firmware.
It just hasn't been updated because they're still working on other things other than the touchscreen firmware.

I do agree that they should do a small hotfix on that part, instead of waiting for everything all at once.

That's true, but it's more of a reason to convince people to switch from 11S to 11 or just AOSP custom roms in general.

But you're still missing out on newer potential features for the phone still only available to find on AOSP over 11S....which required a rom upgrade, like the screen artifact update.

Actually CM11S XNPH33R + kernel with the new touchscreen firmware has no problems... strange right?
No screen artifacts whatsoever

But that's the thing.... It doesn't have screen artifacts because it doesn't have the partial display commit update in the room so kernel developers don't add that in... Right? o.o
