Machao44(the original dev) has now created the XDA thread over here,head here instead of this link,use this thread only if you want to use the older versions of the ROMs or some fixes:
It has the stock Sony Nougat theme and apps found on Xperia XZ Premium,XZs,Xperia L1 and so on.
Also includes the stock Sony camera app with 4K 60FPS recording support,AR effect etc.
Usually the ROM itself is very fast and it is good as a daily driver.
You can download Xposed for this ROM as an addon,but not sure how stable it is.
NOTE: If you are coming from Concept ROM,it is NECESSARY to flash back to stock MM,or you will have a bootloop or the ROM will just fail to install.
1. Download the ROM from here:
https://mega.nz/#F!ZgAhhJLI!PvIf-ZLY0Ihs6fY-8c6SBA (link from Machao44's thread)
2. Download SuperSU or Magisk,both do work(they are not included in ROM zip)
3. Download & install TWRP recovery found on the Lineage thread(if you don't know how to install go to @tomascus's thread and read the second post where the install guide is)
4. Install the zip and start Aroma
5. Select the apps and features you need
6. Once it's done,flash any additional zips and reboot.
NOTE 2: Recovery might get removed after you flash the ROM(if you flash unmodified versions of ROMs),so you need to re-flash through fastboot.
For custom kernels,as reported for now Kernel12 version 11 works fine with this ROM,if you want to try something else then try to flash it and report back if it works,since I believe that not all custom kernels for LineageOS do work.
If Wi-Fi has very weak signal or it doesn't work at all,download and flash this zip:
If you have issues with Bluetooth calling,flash this zip(thanks to @jimmy123322):
If you use M-ROM 1.2.0 or 1.2.5 you will have a brightness issue,to fix download the framework-res.apk from this post(thanks @wolfmannight):
-Sony Themes doesn't work,themes won't apply
If you do find any other issues,please report them here.

Also thanks to:
@vooR9er - helped to translate the Aroma installer
@ztxgeol - found every single download link for every version of this ROM including the link to Xposed,and I have just re-uploaded them all to a better download provider so you are not forced to download from Baidu
@unpair - thanks for testing almost every single version of this ROM and also thanks to everyone who tested the ROMs,but he did help the most
