Questa versione sarà l’ultima basata su Gingerbread per i dispositivi (come il Nexus S) che riceveranno poi CyanogenMod 9, con ICS 4.0; per tutti gli altri, invece, lo sviluppo non si fermerà.
7.2 also marks the end of the Gingerbread story for some hardware; as phones and tablets “graduate” to an ICS-based CM9 stable release, they will have their CM7 development frozen. That will very soon include the Nexus S devices, and probably a handful of others; for these devices, 7.2.0 will be the last Gingerbread release we do.
It is not, however, the end of the line for CM7. As mentioned before, development for CM7 will continue, even if at a slower pace, for devices that need it. We believe that a device in which IceCream Sandwich degrades functionality shouldn’t get CM9 at all, and since not all hardware is (for various reasons) capable of supporting ICS, there is no set date (nor tentative, nor a plan) to terminate work on CyanogenMod 7.x.
