Oh, my primary device finally has LOS19 available and I wondered if it's worth it... After reading a couple of useless hooraying articles on the internet I turned to XDA, of course:
https://www.xda-developers.com/android-12/

Tried to sieve through the comments/ranting but after some kilobytes of text I still havn't a clue...

Anyone here who switched from LOS18 to LOS19 and can offer some insight? Did it get better or did it break a lot of good ol' apps again? :rolleyes:;)

One thing that 18 has that 19 took away is the ability to set an accent color. With 19, you MUST use the color the Monet theming system has derived from your wallpaper whether you want it or not. To me, that's a big step backward in customization. Now, you can root LOS and install a theming system like Substratum to add your own customization, but that shouldn't be necessary. I mean, this is basic stuff.
