Cyanogen Shutting Down All Services by the End of 2016

The open source project will remain available to everyone
Cyanogen will soon cease all operations and its services will be shut down effective December 31, 2016. The company that gave us CyanogenMod ROMs throughout the years is unlikely to continue its work into 2017, but we don't rule out a name change and the adoption of a different business model.

According to the official statement issued recently, the move is meant to consolidate the company, but that doesn't seem to be truly accurate.

You see, the website has already been suspended and it can't be accessed anylonger, even though Cyanogen explicitly said that people will be able to continue to download nightly builds that were already released in the past.
“As part of the ongoing consolidation of Cyanogen, all services and Cyanogen-supported nightly builds will be discontinued no later than 12/31/16. The open source project and source code will remain available for anyone who wants to build CyanogenMod personally,” reads the official statement.
So, it looks like Cyanogen has decided to discontinue its services a week before the end of the year, and cut people's access to nightly builds in the process.

Nightly builds are temporarily (hopefully) unavailable

We sincerely hope that all nightly builds released until now will be made available through another website, otherwise all Cyanogen's work would have been for nothing.

Cyanogen has been going through tough times in the last couple of months, as the two founders of the company, Kirt McMaster and Steve Kondik agreed to disagree concerning Cyanogen's long-term strategy.

Since Kirt McMaster was moved to a new Executive Chairman role back in October, things have got worse and eventually led to the company's announcement this month.

Let's hope Cyanogen's legacy will live on, as Android fans will continue build CyanogenMod ROMs, especially that the open source project and source code will be made available to everyone.
