    The latest stable build of CyanogenMod 7.1 is out, and it has support for Android 2.3.7 as well as 68 devices now. Above is a video of the CM sessions at the Android BBQ. Here is a list of the newest supported devices:
    • HTC Desire S, Incredible S, Incredible 2
    • LG Optimus 2X and T-Mobile G2x
    • Motorola Backflip (Motus), Cliq / Cliq XT, Defy, Droid 2, Droid X
    • Samsung Captivate, Fascinate, Mesmerize, Showcase, Vibrant, Galaxy S, Galaxy S2 (multiple carriers)
    • Sony Ericsson Xperia X8, Xperia Mini, Xperia Mini Pro, Xperia Neo, Xperia Play, Xperia Ray, Xperia Arc
    • ZTE V9
    Here is a list of some of the newest features:
    • Bluetooth mouse support
    • revoking app permissions
    • camera touch-to-focus
    • native screenshots in the power menu
    • upgraded kernel and Android v2.3.7
    Here is the full Changelog. And, here is a download link, CyanogenMod 7.1.

    Another bit of interesting news to come out of this is that the Honeycomb version of CyanogenMod 8 will likely be bypassed altogether in favor of the Ice Cream Sandwich version which is CM9. This means we will likely never even see CM8 released at all.

    you may have to go over to XDA-Developers to find the download links for the Droid X and other devices that have been introduced in this release.

    Apparently the nightly builds are the latest relase for the droid x. There is no "stable" release I guess. I did some googling and all I found was the nightly builds are the 7.1 but its still on the froyo kernel...
    CyanogenMod Mirror Network - Powered by TDRevolutionCan anyone confirm this?

    I haven't used CM in a while (since my D1) anyone know if you can update to the 7.1 through the ROM itself? Like is there an updater built in? I'm waiting for the DX to post too but once it does it's gonna get pounded with traffic.

    Tried 7.1 for a minute. Had to go back to 7.0. For what ever reason, Juice Defender wasn't fully functional on my Dinc with it. And my screen would come on for no apparent reason. So I stick with that and see what 9 brings.
