No I didnt, well you get weekly updates still.

Regarding anythings big, like what big ?

Slim7 for Mi5 is stable and works like charm, I dont find any reason to do change, also new firwares have issues whicj I dont want to prevail in Slim.
Good to know that you still have an eye on Slim :) Really enjoy it for mi5...please keep the good work!
Slim7 is the best rom we have for the mi5!
Also very glad to hear you don't plan on dropping the project even though you don't own the phone anymore!
And nice to hear that you incidentally keep us with the lower firmware ;)
Thanks so much for your beautiful work on this rom!

But I don't want it and there is a specific feature that people who want can adjust in settings. And if have selected none it should be a bug, no?
A bug is more like a definite malfunction. Not exactly something one guy likes this way and the other that way.
It's a default setting for that matter.
I for example am having zero problems with navigation in this rom.

Call it the way you want, but if there is an asignable action for double tap in back button and although I havenot chosen none it does an action, call me crazy but it's a bug/issue.

Hm, I mean I get what you mean, but I still can't find a way to call this a bug or an issue at all. It's just a way of handling things.
You prefer, that when you have not specifically assigned any behavior, well, that it doesn't have any special behavior, I get that.

But another way to see it would be - well, there is a default setting for what happens when you double tab, but if you don't like it, go ahead and change it.
The value of the assignable action 'none' would then just mean "no value assigned that is different from the default one".

It's just the way we define 'bug'. Something that seems a little complicated or irritating might be a thing the devs can consider changing.
But rather in a way of saying 'okay, if you find it annoying, I'll do it differently'.
But to call it a bug is a little off imho, just saying ;)

I guys, I have found only one issue with this Rom: there's no led notification on a missed call. Did I miss something?
Thanks!

I would also call that behaviour a "bug" because "no action" should mean... well, no action at all, if it was the default action, should say "default", besides, other "none" actions on other buttons does nothing, just as this button on older versions. So, something has changed since then.
Anyway, I set up double tap in back button just like one tap, so I can just tap or double tap to go back one level.

Do a factory wipe, and then install it via recovery. If naga kernel is based on LOS, you can.
You can use the HMP version of Naga kernel on this ROM (or any LOS / CAF & AOSP ROMs that don't state that they use EAS - for those there are EAS and EAS voxpopuli versions).
