The well-known Android modded team CyanogenMod announced that the latest version CM 9 stable is starting to rolling out slowly,for all supported devices including Samsung Galaxy S series,Galaxy Nexus,Nexus S,SE Xperia Neo etc.
More firmwares will be listed up after completing the processes on the server.
Meanwhile,as Android 4.1 Jelly Bean had been released by Google weeks ago,CyanogenMod will start to focus mainly on CM 10 which will be based on Jelly Bean,perhaps only keeping bug fixes work on CM 9.
So if you have a device without official support on Android 4.0,you may try to get CM 9 if your device is supported.From my experience,it could run quite well in most of time.Cheers!
Google Translate gets the latest update today.In this version,it starts to support translating the texts in a picture.
Yes,you just have to take a photo and brush the text and you could get the meaning in your own language(currently only available to English,Spanish,Chinese and part of the Arabic).
Once you highlight the texts you want to translate,you could get your result almost immediately.It’s really great when reading some documents with professional vocabulary or travelling in a city where you’re not familiar with their languages.
Of course,it’s not the only thing Google Translate can do.
With Google Translate you can:
• Translate text between 64 languages
• Translate by speaking the text instead of typing it (17 languages)
• Use camera to take a picture and brush text to translate (available on Android 2.3 and above).
• Listen to your translations spoken aloud (40 languages)
• Communicate with another person using speech-to-speech translation in Conversation Mode (ALPHA, 14 languages)
• Display translations in full screen mode to make it easier for others nearby to read
• Star your favorite translations for quick access even when you’re offline
• Access your translation history even when you’re offline
• Spell out the translation of non-Latin script languages (e.g. Chinese, Japanese, etc..) in Latin characters to read it phonetically (e.g. Pinyin, Romaji)
• View additional dictionary results for single words or short phrases
• Push the handwriting button and simply write what you want to translate

Well,it’s not the only update for the day.WordPress 3.2 released its latest update-beta 2.Be aware that it’s a beta version of WordPress and so it’d better to test on a non-production website as it may be working not stably at all.
New version includes some changes since beta 1:
Google Chrome Frame is now supported in the admin, if you have it installed. This is especially useful for IE 6 users (remember, IE 6 is otherwise deprecated for the admin).
The admin is less ugly in IE 7.
The blue admin color scheme has caught up to the grey one, and is ready for testing.
It’s announced that WordPress 3.2 should be officially announced by the end of this month if all results from beta testers show good.I wish it could be on the right track.Eventually I wish to see the improvements on loading the control panel and editors as currently they’re still running a bit slow.
2 days ago,WordPress released 3.2 beta 1.It initially releases to beta users who are willing to bear the risks of bugs and could have some knowledge to point out the existing issues in the beta.
WordPress indicated there are quite a number of improvements in the new version:
Performance improvements like you wouldn’t believe. What’s that mean? Things are faster!
Distraction-free Writing. The visual editor’s full-screen composing experience has gotten a major overhaul, and is now available from HTML mode, too. More than ever, WordPress allows you to focus on what matters most — your content.
Admin UI Refresh. The last major redesign of the WordPress admin was in 2008. This isn’t a major redesign, just a little facelift to keep us feeling young. WordPress turns 8 later this month, you know.
New Default Theme. Introducing Twenty Eleven, based on the popular Duster theme. Rotating header images, post format support, and more.
Browse Happy. WordPress is made to work with modern browsers. If you visit your Dashboard using an outdated web browser, we’ll let you know there’s a newer version available.
Admin Bar. We’ve added more links to the admin bar to make it even more useful.
As it’s the beta version,we can’t expect that it could run smoothly.In fact,some issues have been figured out:
We haven’t updated the blue admin color scheme yet, so do your testing in the gray zone for best results.
As WordPress 3.2 beta 1 is not a minor update from previous version,some requirements have changed to:
