LineageOS (as well as CM did until December 2016) still maintains the cm11.0 / 4.4.4 sources to keep pace with 'The Android Security Bulletin' (ASB).
Patches for security issues are released at least once a month to the Android Open Source Project (AOSP) repository.
Despite of implementing these security patches by the LineageOS team to its own repository https://github.com/LineageOS,
LineageOS does not provide cm11 builds anymore.
Since I personally like 4.4.4. more than later versions, I build it myself unofficially and would like to share it.
The build is made from LineageOS "Branch: cm-11.0" PLUS ASB security patches, even if they are not yet approved by LineageOS.

The stock browser is removed from this ROM due to severe security issues, which cannot get fixed.
Get a state of art browser (like firefox) from play store instead.
Or use the Chromium built by Android-Andy and MSe1969.
a) xposed not supported
A fix is provided by Lenny Bard, see instructions at post here.
Be aware, this fix will revert/break some security patches.
b) stock camera HDR mode is unstable
#1: LOS 14.1 Kernel for the LOS ROM 11.0 S4
It turned out (thanks to side), the LOS 14.1 kernel works in conjunction with LOS 11.0.
Just a small modification to its ramdisk was needed.
Benefit: Security wise the LOS 14.1 kernel is much more advanced compared to the LOS 11.0 kernel.
#2: 14.1 SideCore Kernel by Lenny Bard modified to work in conjunction with this LOS 11.0 ROM
