CyanogenMod 11.0 M5 has begun hitting the community distribution channel ready for download bringing a whole bunch of features.

M5 releases aren’t nightlies, or even stable releases pursue, more like semi-stable releases of CM11 for select devices, offeirng the perfect blend for those users who like to be on the cutting edge of technology but haven’t got the time to flash a new build of CM each night.

Here’s whats new in CM11 M5:

Trebuchet – Fix last icon from hotseat disappearing
Trebuchet – Fix custom home transition effect
Volume Panel – Increase opacity of transparency (previous level led to visibility concerns)
WhisperPush – Relocate to Privacy menu
WhisperPush – fix NPE on viewing identity if unregistered
Translations – Initial imports from CrowdIn (followup blog post next week)
MultiSim – Additional support patches (25+)
Privacy Guard – Additional AppOps permissions
Additional Right-to-left (RTL) layout mirroring support
Settings – Add ‘screen color’ support
Quickboot support (device specific)
Stylus – Fix eraser being disabled by palm rejection
NavBar – Allow toggle in runtime (needs kernel support)
Add ethernet icon support to status bar
Dialer – Open Source forward/backward/incoming look-up

It seems the Galaxy S3 and Galaxy S4 were left out in this release in order to continue work on a build that works for all variants of the device. Hit up this link to get downloading now.
