The steady and fast climb of LineageOS continues with the latest update bringing several new fixes and support for new devices.  Based on the latest statistics from the company, over 1.3 million installs of the platform have now been installed on a wide range of Android devices.  Just last month they hit the 1 million mark to give you perspective on the growth.  Now the company has released another new update and have added a handful of additional devices that are officially supported.

From a feature perspective, there are two new apps and an improvement on one.  First, there is a new gallery app with easier navigation between timeline, albums and videos view and the app now supports full screen video playback.  Second, there is a new FAB (Floating Action Button) in the Recorder app and you can also choose when the recording actually starts.  As for improvements, the LineageOS Updater has been improved and should no longer break downloads or corrupt them in certain situations.
