LineageOS 20 which is based on Android 13 is now available With new features and a new default camera app

A well-known name in the field of developing customized Android is LineageOS. It was CyanogenMod’s replacement and now supports a huge variety of devices, giving enthusiasts a means to optimize and modify their systems without being constrained by bulky skins. The LineageOS team has unveiled LineageOS 20, a significant upgrade based on Android 13. LineageOS 20 which is based on Android 13 is now available With new features and a new default camera app.

New features in LineageOS 20

LineageOS 20 comes with a lot of new features and enhancements:

  • Security patches from April 2022 to December 2022 have been merged to LineageOS 17.1 through 20.
  • LineageOS now has a new camera app called Aperture! It is based on Google’s (mostly) awesome CameraX library and provides a much closer “to stock” camera app experience on many devices. Massive kudos to developers SebaUbuntu, LuK1337, and luca020400 who developed this initially, designer Vazguard, and to the entire team for working to integrate it into LineageOS and adapt it to our massive array of supported devices!
  • WebView has been updated to Chromium 108.0.5359.79.
  • Completely redone volume panel in Android 13 and further developed the side pop-out expanding panel.
  • Fully support Generic Kernel Image and Linux 5.10 builds with full out-of-tree module support to match new AOSP conventions.
  • Lineage fork of the AOSP Gallery app has seen many fixes and improvements.
  • Updater app has seen many bug fixes and improvements, along with a fancy new Android TV layout
  • Our web browser, Jelly has seen several bug fixes and improvements
  • More changes and improvements back upstream to the FOSS Etar calendar app they integrated some time back
  • More changes and improvements back upstream to the Seedvault backup app.
  • Recorder app has been adapted to account for Android’s built-in features, while still providing the features you expect from LineageOS.
      • The app was rearchitected heavily.
      • Material You support has been added.
      • The high-quality recorder (WAV format) now supports stereo, and there have been several threading fixes.

     

  • Android TV builds now ship with an ad-free Android TV launcher, unlike Google’s ad-enabled launcher – it also supports Google TV-style builds, and they are evaluating moving to it on supported devices in the future.
  • Multiple Google TV features, such as the much more appealing looking Two-Panel Settings application have been ported to LineageOS Android TV builds.
  • adb_root service is no longer tied to the build type property, which allows greater compatibility with many third-party root systems.
  • Merge scripts have been largely overhauled, greatly simplifying the Android Security Bulletin merge process, as well as making supporting devices like Pixel devices that have full source releases much more streamlined.
  • LLVM has been fully embraced, with builds now defaulting to using LLVM bin-utils and optionally, the LLVM integrated assembler. For those of you with older kernels, worry not, you can always opt-out.
  • A global Quick Settings light mode has been developed so that this UI element matches the device’s theme.
  • Setup Wizard has seen adaptation for Android 13, with new styling, and more seamless transitions/user experience.

If you’ve ever used LineageOS’s default camera app, you might have been let down. The software, named “Snap,” was a hack of Qualcomm’s own camera app, and later they switched to using the default Camera2 AOSP camera app. It’s a simple software that functions, but it’s too basic for the majority of users. That is why Aperture is so significant.

Aperture takes use of the CameraX API, which has developed recently to the point where it can be used by a camera app as a whole. It allows Aperture to implement the following features:

  • Auxiliary cameras support (device maintainers must enable it)
  • Video frame rate controls
  • Full control of EIS (electronic image stabilization) and OIS (optical image stabilization) settings
  • A leveler to check the device orientation angle
