On the cyanogen.com home page, there is an article about "the future of CM7". It's almost entirely content-free but it does say they are thinking about going to "weekly" builds. Looks like the last three "nightlies" have in fact been separated by a week.
I was noticing the same thing based on the time between nightlies and it seems that this week's release is a stable build. I saw this thanks to ben.nesheim over in the nightly thread. CM 7.2 Stable for the Evo and other devices:
CyanogenMod is a free, community built distribution of Android 2.3.4 (Gingerbread) which greatly extends the capabilities of your phone.
This is a release candidate, but you should find it stable for everyday use.
* Your warranty is now void.
* I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
* thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
* do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
* before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
* you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.
- First time flashing CM 7 to your phone (or coming from another ROM)?
1. Unlock/root your device and install Clockwork Recovery 3 via ROM Manager
2. Do a Nandroid backup!
4. Install the ROM
5. Optionally install the Google Addon
- Upgrading from an earlier CM?
1. Do a Nandroid Backup!
2. Install the ROM (your Google apps will be backed up automatically)
HOW TO REPORT BUGS OR PROBLEMS?
- Was it a hard reboot? Get me the file "/proc/last_kmsg".
- Was it a soft reboot or a "boot loop"? Run "adb logcat" and get me the full output.
- Pastebin links preferred
- Please use the issue tracker whenever possible!
Please visit the CyanogenMod Wiki for step-by-step installation walkthroughs and tons of other useful information.
The preferred method of installation is via ROM Manager, or you can head over to the CM Forums for manual downloads.
Thank you to EVERYONE involved in helping with testing, coding, debugging and documenting! Enjoy!
Love it! Long time deck user...flashed this rom and I'm thinking she's a keeper.
