Weeklies have started and some news…

For those not familiar with Weeklies, these are incremental builds that are posted between official builds. These builds are meant to be as solid as the official but can contain work in progress mods/tweaks from time to time. These builds are built off what’s already merged to Github so what’s in them is tested by the team and other contributors.

Weeklies are signed with the same keys that Official builds are signed with, release keys. If you’re wanting to try out the weeklies and are not on an Official build, you will have to do a full wipe before trying them. If you are already on the Official build, you may dirty flash them with no problems.

If you run into any issues, as always we recommend you visit our JIRA and report these issues there. If you’re wanting to discuss issues with other users or even the maintainer before reporting it to JIRA, you may head over to our Discord server and do so there.

So what’s the news?

A lot of our developers to include myself have been doing this custom ROM thing for a while now. Some of us as early as the ICS days. The leadership in DU has decided that it time to call it quits. We have been doing this for a while now and have nothing to prove. Our Android P builds are as good as they’re going to be, as you can tell and we figured we end things on a high note. Things are going very well but is time to move on. At the end of Android P, the project you’ve all come to love or maybe hate lol will dissolve. Our developers are free to do what they want to do but I suspect most will continue to kick ass and take names elsewhere for other projects.

For myself, I will pursue making a name for myself over on Twitch. Is something that I’ve wanted to do for a while now but just never had a whole lot of time or even space on my computer to do so. With DU in the rear view mirror, I believe I can give it my all. If nothing else, I can have some fun with that 🙂

Our Github organization will stay up as a reference for any developers that would like to carry on a similar project and/or port any of our work forward to future versions. However, our Discord server, Twitter account and other accounts that we used to communicate with our base will be shut down at the end of P.

We like to take this opportunity to thank all our contributors throughout the years. Is definitely been a good experience and we wouldn’t have done it any other way because we did it our way! Thank you again!
