CyanogenMod Android team ask for community cash support

You won't see this sentence very often: CyanogenMod is asking for money. As you may well know, the Android community uses the modification to Android known as CyanogenMod more than any other custom ROM, hands down. And today they're asking that you help them out with their otherwise free service by donating some cash to help support the purchase of "a couple of solid, stable Xeon-class servers with large amounts of RAM and fast disks."

This version continues to closely replicate Android 2.3 Gingerbread, now with a new laundry list of feature updates as well as a short list of new devices it will work with, including, yes indeed, the HP TouchPad we've been waiting so long to modify.
