LineageOS 17.1 on Android 10 is now officially available for the Android devices.

LineageOS is considered as one of the most popular custom ROMs since the CyanogenMod time.
LineageOS based on Android 9 Pie was available since last year. However, LineageOS 17.1 based on Android 10 is very slow in terms of release than any other custom ROM. But still, at last, the latest official version is now available for download. To recall, the unofficial build for LineageOS 17.1 since some time now.

Why LinageOS is Upgrading to LineageOS 17.1 from LineageOS 17.0?

In September 2019, the source code of Android 10 was available on AOSP. The AOSP Android 10 has introduced a feature called Permissions Hub that has conflicted with the Privacy guard feature of the custom ROM, which has forced LineageOS to drop its implementation. It has made the team take more time and work hard to bring this update.
Also, when Google released Android security bulletin in December 2019, in its blog, LineageOS mentioned that the latest version would be based on the December Pixel feature drop, which has a new code to the Google Pixel 4, 4XL tag of AOSP. Hence it has decided to move from LineageOS 17.0 to 17.1.
As of now, the official LineageOS 17.1 builds are available for some selected devices. More devices to be added as marked by Charter compliant and ready for builds by their maintainer.
Not only this, but LineageOS Wiki also extended and more options were given to the device maintainers to customize their devices via an update, installation, and upgrade instructions.
