4.4 RC1 - Kitkat 4.4.3

Dose of awesome sauce on this week from PA Headquarters, again. As you may know we merged 4.4.3 into our source. If coming from 4.4.2 ROM(s) (and your device has received updates for radio and bootloader) you will need to flash new bootloader, radio, along with Gapps and update to latest recovery before going forward. Many bugs have been also resolved on our bug tracker thanks to community’s reports, less to go.

After many months, many revisions and many concept’s debates we are really proud to finally release first public Hover state. Still some visual things to do but we achieved a great point :) Original idea and first developed revision by +Jesús David Gulfo Agudelo, subsequently lead by +Carlo Savignano till current revision.
Due to popularity demand from the community we’ve added a couple of great suggestions:
- If current notification showed in hover is from current foreground app, don’t reopen it in floating. - Ticker now shows for apps that are blacklisted from Hover. More sauce to come.

Theme Engine
As you may know as for last monday release, we brought to you CyanogenMod Theme Engine. As for who asked it during this week, we’ll keep Theme Engine up to date with its upstream state. It will be a 0-Day upstream line. We’ve also added support for some AOSP base components as home button refreshing. More to come, since some AOSP components (as stock navigation bar) behaves differently. Nothing to worry about though, because right now only navigation bar’s background isn’t refreshed when applying a theme (needs rebooting).

RC1, what that means?
We achieved an almost stable state for this branch (PA 4.4), no special reasons :)
