    bikas , Nov 25, 2015 :
    OK, with official launch of CM13 nightlies, we have set of bugs. Some are fixed, most aren't. Here is the list.

    OPEN -

    AOSP Keyboard shortcut not working
    - Create personal dictionary word/ phrase, add a shortcut key to it. Try shortcut key to insert full phrase, nothing happen.
    Fix - None yet. Till 20160105

    Device don't backs up or restores from Google
    - Install the ROM and you won't see option to restore the Apps. None of the settings restores as well.
    Fix - As nasty as it is, I don't find any solution to it. Took me extra 2 hours to get all my settings right. No fix yet - till 20160105

    FIXED -

    Phone constantly losing network signal

    - You loose network signal constantly and even after manual selecting, it looses in some time.
    Fix - Flash using TWRP (https://dl.twrp.me/bacon/twrp- and no version above.

    GPS not working
    - GPS doesn't work as expected. Locates you far off. ~1600 km away in my case.
    Fix - Definitely fixed from 20160202 onwards

    Data never connects
    - No matter what you do, mobile data never connects
    Fix - It's been fixed in Nov 25th nightly. Tested on 20151130, still works.

    Swipe gesture in AOSP keyboard not working

    - Try swiping and it doesn't work.
    Fix - Actually, it's quite simple. Opengapps has an issue with keyboard lib. Flash any other gapps to get rid of it. My favorite is SLIM.

    Last call in Dialer is not shown
    - Not sure about others, but I don't see last call in dialer (see attachment contact.png).
    Fix - Finally after investigation, actually it's not a bug but in 6.0, dialer doesn't have last call. Tried with official Google Phone app (now pulled form Play Store) http://www.apkmirror.com/apk/google...aler-2-3-12-android-6-0-android-apk-download/

    Mobile network choose automatically not present
    - When you search for mobile network, you've option to select list of network providers, but there's no option to select Choose Automatically, as was in previous releases (See attachment choose_automatically.png). Interestingly, Choose Automatically is present while it searches for network. (See attachment searching.png).
    Fix - Fixed in 20151205

    Edit Tile issues
    Issue - There's no way to add extra tile apart from Broadcast Tile. Even in Broadcast Tile, keyboard never pops up (see attachment tile.png).
    Fix - Fixed in 20151210

    Default Music crashes when Artist name is clicked
    - Click on artist name in default music app, and the app crashes.
    Fix - Fixed in 20151130

    MMS sending doesn't work
    - MMS can't be sent using CM13.
    Fix - Fixed in 20151205. Note this may not work well even now. It's a known Marshmallow bug and is now fixed in 6.0.1. We've to wait a bit longer.

    Frequent reboots
    - Brought with 20151209, system reboots randomly. After few builds, now the reboots are too frequent.
    Fix - Properly fixed in at least 20160101. No need for any fix to flash.
    It's caused due to changes in vendor files by CyanogenMod. Follow the description, and find the fix here http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=64431504&postcount=1436.


    WhatsApp QR code scanner is not working
    Issue - When you open WhatsApp QR code scanner, the image is garbled and it seems not to be working at all.
    Fix - This officially an issue with CM13 and not fixed. However, you can still scan with the scanner. Trick is the focus exactly on the barcode on webpage. If you know basic of developer tool then you can remove all other element from the WhatsApp web page, go to full screen (F11) and then try scanning. With nothing else left to distract the scanner, your QR code will be scanned properly.

    No quick unlock is present
    - Insert correct pin and unlock without pressing OK is not present.
    Fix - There'll be no fix from CyanogenMod, as it's removed from security concerns. Use GravityBox (XPosed Module) to get this feature.

    This seems to be it for now. If I come across any more bug/ fix, I'll add to the list. You guys can do the same.

    MMS doesn't work right if you have WiFi on
    The new messaging app is different
    The default music player crashes if you try to select an artist
    The profile picture cannot be changed
    The swiping on the notification drawer is gross
    The systemui still has an odd bug that your navigation bar dissapers in landscape
    I'm getting significant "miscellaneous" power usage
    There is no quick unlock when you input your pin yet
    There are not many quick settings tiles yet

    I am still having GPS issues even after 20151126 update, I reside in Chennai, and it shows me somewhere near Chatissgarh :/
    Further the mobile data issue still exists, which worsk only after toggling on and off the Airplane mode.
    And in battery, though Doze works fine, still WiFi(above 30%)and miscellaneous(above 15%) cause excessive battery drain..

    I never send MMS so have no idea about it. Can somebody else confirm so that I put it up the thread?
    Music player issue is there, will update the thread with it.
    Profile picture changed fine with me.
