CM11 M2 changelog

Android power users like me are always happy to see updates or new ROMs. Cyanogenmod is one of the best Android after-market ROMs available. Today, the CM11 M2 was release which is a monthly build or in between nightlies and release candidates. Nightlies are highly experimental with new features and release candidates are stable with very few bugs intended to use as daily drivers. Monthly builds also have comparatively much less bugs but may have less features. I have personally been using the CM11 M1 since December 6, 2013.

The Cyanogenmod team did not release a changelog with this new release so I decided to do it. Please note that these are only noticeable changes, after using for ~1 hour on my Nexus 10 and these may vary from device to device. I will keep adding changes when I notice them. Anyways, here is the changelog:

1) Settings has Tablet UI

2) Feels smoother

3) Settings has new Profiles section

4) New battery styles: battery portrait and landscape. Circle with % is removed.

5) Transparent Status bar and navigation bar in launcher and lock screen

6) Navigation bar quick launch shortcuts are smaller
