And just like that, we have another announcement (and subsequent release) from the folks at Cyanogen. This latest arrives as a new monthly build which will be dubbed as the M-Series. In this case, we have CM10:M1 already available for select devices. But before we get into which devices, lets cover what CM10:M1 actually is. According to the details, this is a new build of CyanogenMod that will be released at the beginning of every month. The M is noted as standing for, well, lots — including monthly and milestone. Perhaps more important, the release of the M-Series builds is aimed at quality.

“Something we have learned over the past few months is that if you don’t release, someone else will do it for you. Since we are open-source, we absolutely encourage it! Unfortunately, the quality of unofficial builds can vary, and we are serious about quality. Of course nightlies are always available, but we realized that having something that is a bit more stable on a more frequent basis is important.”

Hence the introduction of the M-Series builds. And one other point that is important to mention, while the focus is on quality and these will be monthly releases — they are still under the experimental tag. Simply put, if you are planning to run any M-Series builds, be prepared or at least willing to accept some quirks and issues.
