CyanogenMod CM13 Snapshot Builds Based on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow Released

The CyanogenMod community in November last year released nightly CM13 builds based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow for select handsets. The company on Tuesday announced unveiled the first Snapshot build of CM13, based on Android 6.0.1 (r17) Marshmallow, marking the company's first non-nightly release for CM13. It has also highlighted different update scenarios and also asks CM 13.0 nightly users not to flash these builds, since they are already on a newer codebase (Android 6.0.1_r22), so attempting to flash these release builds will result in crashes due to attempted database downgrades.

The build is available for several smartphones including the Nexus 6P, Nexus 5X, Nexus 6, Nexus 5, Nexus 4, OnePlus One, Moto E (2015), Oppo Find 7 and 7s, Oppo R7 Plus, Xiaomi Mi 4, LG G2, Android One devices, Nexus 7 (2013) Wi-Fi and 4G versions, Nexus 9, Nexus 10 and more.

The Android 6.0.1 (r17) Marshmallow-based CM13 build brings several changes including fingerprint support for accessing protected content, changes under Settings application, and more. The Settings app specially has seen numerous changes in the new build. Sections such as Status bar, Lockscreen, Sim Cards, Memory, Navigation Drawer and more have seen changes in layout and options. The complete changelog can be seen here.
