LineageOS 20 Updates
As noted in the intro, LineageOS 20 is a pretty massive update, packing in loads of new features and tweaks. LineageOS provided a full breakdown of all the changes found in the latest build of LineageOS 20 which you can see below:
- Security patches from April 2022 to December 2022 have been merged to LineageOS 17.1 through 20.
- ohmagoditfinallyhappened – LineageOS now has an awesome new camera app called Aperture! It is based on Google’s (mostly) awesome CameraX library and provides a much closer “to stock” camera app experience on many devices. Massive kudos to developers SebaUbuntu, LuK1337, and luca020400 who developed this initially, designer Vazguard, and to the entire team for working to integrate it into LineageOS and adapt it to our massive array of supported devices!
- WebView has been updated to Chromium 108.0.5359.79.
- We have introduced a completely redone volume panel in Android 13 and have further developed our side pop-out expanding panel.
- We now support GKI and Linux 5.10 builds with full out-of-tree module support to match new AOSP conventions.
- Our fork of the AOSP Gallery app has seen many fixes and improvements.
- Our Updater app has seen many bug fixes and improvements, as well as now has a fancy new Android TV layout!
- Our web browser, Jelly has seen several bug fixes and improvements!
- We have contributed even more changes and improvements back upstream to the FOSS Etar calendar app we integrated some time back!
- We have contributed even more changes and improvements back upstream to the Seedvault backup app.
- Our Recorder app has been adapted to account for Android’s built-in features, while still providing the features you expect from LineageOS.
- The app was rearchitected heavily.
- Material You support has been added.
- The high quality recorder (WAV format) now supports stereo and there has been several threading fixes.
- Android TV builds now ship with an ad-free Android TV launcher, unlike Google’s ad-enabled launcher – we also support Google TV-style builds and are evaluating moving to it on supported devices in the future.
- Multiple Google TV features, such as the much more appealing looking Two-Panel Settings application have been ported to LineageOS Android TV builds.
- Our adb_root service is no longer tied to the build type property, which allows greater compatibility with many third-party root systems.
- Our merge scripts have been largely overhauled, greatly simplifying the Android Security Bulletin merge process, as well as making supporting devices like Pixel devices that have full source releases much more streamlined.
- LLVM has been fully embraced, with builds now defaulting to using LLVM bin-utils and optionally, the LLVM integrated assembler. For those of you with older kernels, worry not, you can always opt out.
- A global Quick Settings light mode has been developed so that this UI element matches the device’s theme.
- Our Setup Wizard has seen adaptation for Android 13, with new styling, and more seamless transitions/user experience.
The Big One – CameraX Comes To LineageOS 20
The camera app used inside LineageOS 19 wasn’t up to the task. After having issues with Snap, LineageOS’ fork of Qualcomm’s camera app, the team had to revert to using Camera2, the default AOSP camera app.
But as many users pointed out, this camera app simply wasn’t advanced enough for modern users. It lacked plenty of the features most of us now take for granted on our smartphones.
CameraX Improves Massively on Camera2
During the development of LineageOS 20, the newer (much more advanced) CameraX reached a state of development where it could be used as the default camera app inside LineageOS 20.
LineageOS spent a reported two months working on CameraX and it has now completely replaced Camera2 inside LineageOS 20, bringing with it a multitude of improvements and new features.
Here’s a breakdown of CameraX’s abilities:
- Auxiliary cameras support (device maintainers must enable it)
- Video frame rate controls
- Full control of EIS (electronic image stabilization) and OIS (optical image stabilization) settings
- A leveler to check the device orientation angle
LineageOS also confirmed that new features will likely be released in the coming months too.
