The cyanogen team and some other individual devs or they together as a team work has been continuosly porting the latest builds each and every day with new features and bug fixes. But we need to put a last stable release. The primary and most important concern for every user is BATTERY LIFE and RAM MANAGEMENT. All other features like GUI looks and feel will come second.
SuperAosp team for this wonderful best i should say ROM
Cyanogen mod team for the continous support and devoloping they are doing
Kaushik dutta for the stepping stone ... CWMRecovery without it ..all this would have been a big joke.
