Current builds (starting with r18) are Android 5.0 Lollipop only.
KitKat is dead and the last stable release was r17, which you're free to use if you're still on 4.4.4.

Disclaimer to moderators:
Slight OT is fine, but when users decide to act stupid they should be dealt with with the appropriate means - its really annoying for me when OT turns crazy. Please put the warning/ban hammer anytime any of you think there's lack of respect and/or too much unwanted OT crap - but if it doesn't meet this criteria let the OT posts alone. Thank you.
