It appears version 4.2.102354210 is still the current version. Will this get updated soon or is it being left out as its 'targeted' at Android 6.0?
Actually 5.0 is in the package since the 13th. I just have to update the version information script, since it cannot handle the situation where higher SDK versions are outdated compared to lower SDK versions. The package builder does pick the highest applicable version correctly, though. So you can be sure of it to be in the package

Are you including the Marshmallow files? Because in app version it says 6.0
We use the newest Facelock available, which is indeed version 6.0 but should be completely backward compatible. But it is known that Facelock is broken on *a lot* of devices. So did Facelock ever work for your before? If yes, could you give a logcat of the FC?

Btw, thanks for acknowledging.
EDIT: Is it possible to download the previous version of gapps? I really find the previous versions are more useful and stable.
Yes, we also trust the work of CM. But our suspicion is just that binary compatibility is broken, so we better leave the original CM keyboard libs then in place, instead of destroying their functionality with the Google libs that were never officially meant to be used that way.
You can fetch the old packages from the Github releases pages. They are organized per CPU architecture and in respective repos you will find the releases.
Also, you can of course build your own package using the source and add the 'ingredients' you like and find most stable.
