I don't know what exactly those changes involve but it usually fixes bugs and adds new features. Since our device does not have an official cm build, when those guys at Cyanogenmod changes something it does not immediately come to dhiru's repository. Those changes are manually 'merged' by dhiru or someone else maintaining the galaxy sl repo. For example a there was not an option to change default home screen of launcher3 a few months ago. Codes for this option are first committed to some official repository at cyanogenmod.com and then dhiru brought it us by one of those upstream changes.

I hope this help to clarify

Thank you so much for your time answering my question, now I know. By the way, I'm currently using Cyanogenmod10.2 and I found it smooth. Gotta wait for more updates to to our device. Thanks a lot bro.

our phone need to send some data to network in certain intervals for making us online .... this is known as upstream (i.e. uploading of data )
but this task is all ways need large battery usage that's why developer want to make it optimum i.e. largest interval that can achieved ...
but some time this experiment disconnect our data connection (I mean some time our phone shows that it is connected but we observed no data is going up and down on signal bar) i.e. in rom UPSTREAM is not configured properly .. so this result upstream change


click on thanks if this helps you
