THIS IS IMPORTANT! PLEASE READ THIS BEFORE YOU COMMENT
This is an important announcement regarding the future of PAC-ROM and our progress towards N....
As you all know, we've been working hard around the clock to get PAC-7.0 ready to go. However, as we've had major progress towards porting N over to PAC, we've been busy talking in the background about killing off the PAC-ROM Project as a whole and to focus on a whole new direction to modernize and revitalize both our staff and to put the PAC Reputation in the past and focus on creating something bigger and better.
Since the birth of PAC-ROM we've seen a HUGE increase in numbers and it is without a doubt one of the best ROM communities that I have worked with and have been a part of, however, as we unanimously decided it was better for both the PAC reputation and our staff's health to change the way we focus on ROM's.
I want to reassure you all that we are IN NO WAY leaving the ROM Community whatsoever, our focus will be developing a whole new ROM while keeping you all in the loop about our progress through Development Diaries etc.
I know a lot of you will think that we've got internal issues or have no money to operate on, but I want to tell you that all these things are not true. We're working on making sure that our ROM doesn't conflict with any legal issues when we get partnerships, etc. as this will affect our potential revenue streams to help sustain our community.
So to clear the air and summarize, it is confirmed that we will be killing PAC and ending ourselves at PAC-6.0, yes this is a sad day and no we will no longer be supporting PAC-ROM through our social media channels.
ALL MAINTAINERS PLEASE NOTE THAT YOU WILL BE RELEASING A FINAL PAC-ROM SOMETIME IN THE NEXT DAY OR TWO, PLEASE CHANGE YOUR TAGS FROM UNOFFICIAL TO OFFICIAL.
Lokesh, Aaron, Jaaga, Humza, José and the rest of the PAC-ROM team.
AS OF October 1st, 2016 at 12:00AM EASTERN STANDARD TIME, ALL PAC-ROM SUPPORT IS DEAD, ALL INFORMATION REGARDING OUR NEW PROJECT WILL BE RELAYED VIA OUR G+ PAGE, ONCE WE MOVE, PAC-ROM PAGES WILL ALL BE REMOVED AND EVERYONE MOVES OVER TO OUR NEW PROJECT.
So here is the low down on PAC MM, we've got the good news and the bad news but let's just start with the good for now
First off, we're happy to say that PAC MM is now made public through our BasketBuild and other alternative download sources through the PAC-ROM Community Page. Now before you guys start asking us, oh my god where are all the features IT JUST LOOKS LIKE CM HALPS US!?!?! Well we will get to that much later, however, for now we've removed the banner on all PA...C MM builds so sharing builds from today onwards is allowed.
However, here is the bad news we originally planned to switch to AOSP for Marshmallow but we had some issues. We didn't have enough manpower to work on it properly, most of our core devs got really busy with their work IRL and some of our maintainers had issues with their device bring ups. For this reason, we decided to switch back to CM for Marshmallow. A lot of you have been asking us every day and it's great to see the enthusiasm within the community about the ROM! We're growing so fast and it's putting a huge smile on all our faces and giving us the support we need to keep on building PAC (for those who don't know by now, PAC is one of the best ROM out there but I'm just going to keep the vouching to a minimum here )
Earlier I mentioned about the features, now a lot of us have decided and the core dev team for PAC have made the official decision to code freeze features for PAC MM and focus all development for PAC N (N is unannounced but my best guess here is some indian treat whose name I don't want to misspell), with this in mind if people want US to put in features to MM we'll be providing a Feature Request link or a tab on the G+ and Facebook pages to ensure that people can tell us what they want to see in MM. However, do note that we will NOT be porting everything from PAC Loolipop.
With this in mind, on behalf of the whole dev team and the maintainers it's been one hell of a ride and we're so excited to show you what we have in store for PAC. Oh and before I forget yes we're listening to your opinions and suggestions on what PAC needs so know that you, the community come first before anyone else.
Thank you for such an amazing ride!
Lokesh, Jaaga and the team.
