What does it means by V1-q ??

Thansk in advance

If you look at https://doc.e.foundation/how-tos/build-e, you can see that one can self build a release version of /e/, or a test version
This is a test version on the v1-q branch, you can see what’s been happening on the said branch here https://gitlab.e.foundation/e/os/android/-/commits/v1-q/

Thanks for reply.

Sorry but I m not programar guy. I tried to learn on the links you mentioned above. But sorry to say that I hardly understand anything.
So will it be out of Beta?


I don’t know when a 0.17-q release of /e/ will happen, no announcement has been made so far

also mido might get official q builds soon


That is really good news, but aren’t the official /e/ builds based on official LineageOS sources? I mean there is no official 17.1 for mido.

As far as I know, /e/ developers took/take LineageOS and fork /e/ from that in the beginning. But they have done and are doing a lot of cleaning and changing in that original Lineage OS.
Maybe after sometime /e/ will not be based on lineage OS. So even if there is no update in Lineage OS there will be /e/ OS updates.
Please correct me if I’m wrong. But this is what I have learned so far.

The exact working is out of my knowledge. As, for example, for mido there is official .16 version based on nouget is there. But how and on what base they make Unofficial 0.17 q version?

After all mido was removed from q list:

…because there is no LineageOS Q for mido:

…but the good news after all is mido should finally move from nougat to pie:

Why cant this ROM be Official?
And I m curious. Why have you given V 1-q ? and not 0.19?

the linked one is android 11, not v1-q… we will see what we can do for official but for now lineage only has support for pie on mido, so every higher android version has to be build with custom sources… :slight_smile:
