i9505 LineageOS (former CyanogenMod) 11.0

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).
https://source.android.com/security/bulletin/index.html.
Patches for security issues are released at least once a month to the Android Open Source Project (AOSP) repository, even for Android 4.4.4.

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.


Instructions:
Code:
#include <std_disclaimer.h>

 * I'm not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
 * thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
 * do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
 * before flashing it! 
 */
First time flashing cm11.0 your device, or coming from another ROM
- download the zip
- install a compatible recovery
- perform a recovery backup of your current ROM
- wipe data & cache partitions of your device
- flash ROM
- optional: install the Google Apps addon package

Note
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.

Known Issues:
a) xposed not supported
Update 2017/08/27:
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


Extra Kernels:
#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

Confirmed:
Chromecast screen mirror works well with latest official CM build cm-11-10160815-NIGHTLY-jflte.zip,
but it doesn't work with the version provided in the OP.
Thank your for your feedback, I'm going to add a warning regarding this issue.

Two choices:
a) I screwed it up with my local build.
b) One of the patches between August 2016 till now did it.
Either way not easy to find out, at least not for me. Let's see.
