24 December 2016, USA:
Cyanogen Inc. has announced that it will be shutting down all its services. The company wrote in a blog post, “As part of the ongoing consolidation of Cyanogen, all services and Cyanogen-supported nightly builds will be discontinued no later than 12/31/16. The open source project and source code will remain available for anyone who wants to build CyanogenMod personally.”
As per TechCrunch report, This update means owners of a device that runs the Cyanogen OS — such as the OnePlus One — must now transition over to the CyanogenMod ROM, which is not a commercial product and is managed by a community of developers led by former co-founder Steve Klondik.
Earlier this year in July, the company laid off about 20% of its workforce. (30 out of the 136) It also reshuffled its top level workforce where Kondik was removed from the board and was made the Chief Science Officer from the Chief Technology Officer.
