    FYI for everyone staying on the latest....RC5 has dropped. If you are on nightly build 203, its pretty much the same, so no need to switch to.

    From what I see on the site changelog:

    Common: Lockscreen gestures - Michael Webster
    Common: Camera bugfixes (mostly for Droid) - Michael Webster


    Im on 202 and its killer. Way better than 199. Speed and battery to me is better. But that is just me. I am not going to flash 203 or RC5 as they have features I dont care about at this time. Cam works great for me on 202. No issues at all.

    EDIT: I aint going to sleep ne time soon, so might as well flash 203. Im bored, lol

    Runs great for me. I have a replacement and it has serious heat issues. I can only use 2 ROMs. This and one other and this keeps me in the 70's and 80's, sometimes 90's and 100's but usually when I'm messing with a lot of stuff, games, doing anything while it's charging

    Ah, thank you! I looked it up a while back and I couldn't find anything on it. I only knew that it was good for your phone for the most part. Somtimes in settings, it gives you a percent for how much to use, how do you know?
    And I have the Slayher 1Ghz 1.7 right now and apparently it doesn't support compcache

    I am guessing on this since I am not a dev on CM but yes. I am on 202 and didnt see these, so that is my guess. Cam was working great already so I am going to say that is an on going issue as they seem to have been having issues with it on this release.

    I use P3's 900/125 kernel. To me, it was WAY faster and better battery life than the stock 800 it comes with. Each phone is different, so to each is their own. Trial and error is how I found this kernel to be perfect for me. Phone never gets hot like it used to with others.

    I wish there was a changelog. I never know the difference between one build or the other, I usually just stay with the latest but I just started running CM like 2 nights ago.
    And yeah, I changed cause to me, the stock seemed laggy. It kept me cool and everything but seemed slightly slow so I have Slayher 1.7 which keeps me cool as well and runs better. My replacement is terrible on hear so it's rare for me to find anything that works

    cool, thanks droidkevlar. i must say, i'm loving these homescreen gestures so far. the Cyanogen team are constantly topping themselves.
