I looked into it further. It seems that the CM camera doesn't do Picasa Sync. Sad face

I flashed the old Jelly Bean camera for now. It seems the 4.2 GoogleGallery is what is needed but the camera on there is all hokey. Is there a 4.2 camera that doesn't have the hard freezing problem when taking a picture with the flash on and without pre-focusing?
No, there isn't unfortunately. Unless the camera is built from source for the GS3 like the CM10.1 camera, any camera apk that you find will have the hard freezing problem.

I am loving the latest build. Stable as snot, great performance, excellent battery life.
Thanks, glad you enjoy this ROM. There will be another update tomorrow

Yeah I wish AOSPA would implement this feature, so that if you are on the home screen it will automatically kill all apps, but when you are in another app it will close all of them except the one you are in. Who knows...maybe they are working on it..
And looking forward to see your bootanim!

I am more concerned with apps not being stopped properly to begin with. I'm having apps, even if I choose the quit option or even "hold back to kill", that stay in the queue like they are still open.

It'll be coming but I work 9 of the next 10 days So we'll see.

Sounds like a rogue app or an hardware issue in my opinion.

Try factory reseting the phone and clearing all data/cache (incl davlik). Leave the phone for a bit to see if the problem happens again.

Did you see what we were talking about? Because of overlapping stuff in this ROM, apps are evidently not getting closed correctly, as well as staying in the recents list. It is common knowledge that leaving apps running means the CPU works harder, and higher CPU usage means higher temperatures and more battery drain.

Common knowledge?
There have been long posts and sticky threads about this so I think the contrary is common knowledge.
Those apps aren't actually RUNNING in the back. It's actually beneficial in a few ways when you don't kill them.
Take a look at the many many threads about task killers.

Android will manage the apps properly and know when to kill them.

Yeah, there's really a lot more to Android app management. That elementary view of "if it's running in recents you're wasting battery!!1" is a bit silly.

This may be the case in general, but klin mentioned about a page ago that because of the overlapping nature of this ROM, it isn't happening correctly.

And I can notice a very discrete difference in my battery performance when I have apps "running" in recents, versus when I don't.
