Default CM11 Official ROM impressions

I don't see a thread here to discuss the CM 11 official nightlies, what people think of the ROM, so I created this.

So if you have used one of the July CM11 nightly builds please let us know:
-Any bugs on the ROM? Major, minor?
-How is the ROM stability?
-Responsiveness?
-Does the ROM auto update using cyanogenmod built in OTA updates?

I tried it for a short time, but couldn't really see the point when I could just keep using the GPe ROM with Xposed.

Sure, CM has other features that are great, but it doesn't seems as stable as the GPe ROM? Or maybe that was just my initial impression. There's very little info and documentation on CM for the Ultra, so we also have NO clue about potential bugs and so on, so that's annoying.

That's why I created this thread, no one has ever given any feedback on the cm11 ROM, specially the latest July releases which have now become true nightly releases which may mean that the build is now stable.

Voicemail notification not working for me. Baseband used by CM is 45-39, I think that's the .681 version, maybe that's the issue. Depending on your point of view, could be considered a major bug.

Been using nightlies for ages, no issues other than voicemail.

Yup!

I am using my ZU mainly as book reader, music for car audio via Bluetooth, browsing, occasional gaming. Even nightlies were very stable for my usage.

You should put Gpe in the thread title if that is the ROM you are asking for info for. There are separate builds with different source I'm sure.

Wrong choice of words, but am I correct in stating that Gpe could have bugs not present in standard Sony Cm11?

Yes there could be bugs in one and not the other - case in point the camera not working in the GPe ROMs of 4.4.4 but was in the togari

I know theoretically there can be, I'm talking about reality, someone who has used the ROM and can report bugs.

I find it very strange that there isn't a discussion thread for either the Xperia ZU or the GPe CM11 ROM, how are people supposed to report bugs to the CM team?
Do they at least have a device specific change log ?
