We understood that with all the announcement of the CyanogenMod building itself into an integrated entity absolutely meant some thing was approaching to horizon. Steve Kondik, the motivator behind CyanogenMod and the newly established CyanogenMod Inc., has introduced that the future of the CyanogenMod keeps two tracks: the “Community Edition” and the “Pro Edition” of the well-known Android custom ROM thus there is two distinct versions declared of CyanogenMod.
The Community Edition of the CyanogenMod ROM is the only one that we all know and really like right this moment. You root your gadget, you install it with the CyanogenMod. Still you take back the full access over your Android gadget and is able to do with it what you would like. Therefore, you’ll find a way to do anything that you’d usually manage to do with the rooted device for instance installing different themes, hacking the settings, and stuff like that.
It appears to be a little backwards, but this Pro Edition of the CyanogenMod is in fact the version that will come with the complete and user-friendly and uncomplicated CyanogenMod installer. Because of this, it is targeted more towards those users who do not really feel ease by installing and rooting their Android devices.
Moreover, the oxymoron that is definitely the “Pro Edition” implies that your smart phone is not going to be rooted automatically, despite the fact that you can do this by yourself. Much with the expectation of getting their ROM installed on gadgets as the default OS, this is certainly the no-nonsense edition of CyanogenMod. Advanced settings still are available but need authorization just before they are enabled.

- Unified Messaging: With a new news app not only SMS and Hangouts are to be united, but all intelligence services. For example, Live Folders will intelligently remember someone you have contacted recently and the service you used to contact them (Hangouts, GMAIL, Text Message) and will open this automatically.
Likewise, some other new features to be included with new editions will be:

Most of the recently introduced features announced, for instance Live Folders, are presently available in the most recent nightly build of CyanogenMod. If you sense up to the task, install this by yourself and give it an attempt.
As for the CyanogenMod, so long as they carry on to let a flexibility to their users that a manufacturers or stock firmware doesn’t, I’ll continue to use them.
