Cyanogen Shuts Down CyanogenMod, CM Team Diverges To LineageOS

Cyanogen came up with with a pretty imperial plan to depose of Google but that  plan (CyanogenMod) has failed magnificently!

After suffering what has been a quite miserable couple of months which involved the company undergoing a round of layoffs, shutter of its headquarters and parting ways with the company's co-founder Steve Kondik (after disagreement with co-founder McMaster).

Cyanogen has now made
an announcement of their services and nightly builds shutdown at the end of the year i.e Dec 31, 2016.

Below is excerpts from Cyanogen's official blog post announcement:

"As partof the ongoing consolidation of Cyanogen, all services and Cyanogen-supported nightly builds will be discontinued no later than 12/31/16. The open source project and source code will remain available for anyone who wants to build CyanogenMod personally."
This development means devices running Cyanogen OS would no longer get updates and would have to rely on the community-driven CyanogenMod ROM for further development.

While Cyanogen has come to its end, the Cygn team are forking CM into LineageOS.

The decision to fork CM into LineageOS is a move to distance their new CynogenMod developments from the Cyanogen company so as not to lose it in the event of the sale of Cyanogen to a thirt-party company.
Cyanogen's discontinued support of CyanogenMod does not come as a surprise, seeing as its (CyanogenMod) last supporter at Cyanogen (Steve Kondik) had left the company.
