-> Yes we have telegram channel-https://t.me/prototypereleases

4.Can we request features?
-> Yes you can request features and ill try my best to implement it but no promise

5.I dont have any knowledge about governors and schedulers?
-> Dont worry if you dont have any knowledge just select next in aroma installer

6.Which ROMS are supported ?
-> Treble ROMS of pie and oreo are supported.Further compatibility will expand.

6.My phone heating after booting the kernel ?
-> Yes as the phone boots CPU carries out various tasks which lead to increase load on cpu and thus heating.So it is recommended that after flashing the kernel keep the phone idle for 10 mins and then see the magic

Okay, initial impression.
-Charging rate is fine.
-Pubg gameplay is smooth and this is amazing that it stayed at 40°C for me. I was shocked cuz this was only possible before in Cardinal Rom. Great work dev
-Battery consumption is 13-14% per full length classic match.
- Though the phone doesn't heats as such, but the idle temps are higher than stock Arrow and Moxie ie. >36°C

I haven't done a full charge, so can't really comment in battery.

But this is Greta for initial build. Thanks for this kernel.
