Below are the full changelog of Cyanogen Apps Package for Marshmallow

– All apps updated to M compatibility, including run-time permission checks.
– Extra logic to avoid permission errors – you DO NOT need to wipe to install, we’ve mitigated this.
– Non-core functionality apps are now uninstallable!
– Twitter users: Experience the Lock Screen MOD – ‘Happening on Twitter’, for an even faster way to access what’s trending worldwide.
– Cortana users: Cortana has enhanced capabilities on CM, including a new Lock Screen MOD capability. (Cortana not pre-bundled in this zip, get it from the Play Store)
– Cyanogen OS Dialer has been open sourced, and therefore no longer in the package.
– TrueCaller MOD will now integrate directly into CM’s Dialer, and is uninstallable if you don’t want this service.
Skype users: The Skype MOD will allow you to transfer a cellular network call directly to a Skype video call, seamlessly. Skype calls will also show up in your call log, and you can make Skype calls directly from Dialer using search or T9. (Skype not pre-bundled in this zip, get it from the Play Store)
– OneNote users: Create notes from the new MOD integration directly from the InCallUI screen or Boxer Email client (OneNote not pre-bundled in this zip, get it from the Play Store)
– Cyanogen Account, ThemeStore, ThemeChooser with per-app themeing, AudioFX and Gallery make their return
