Previous AOKP version (4.3) has tablet mode support, i.e. it was possible to replace both statusbar and notification bar with single panel on bottom of the screen. Is it possible to get this approach back for the newest (based on Android 4.4) version?

It's kind a strange, as Tablet bilds are available for download, but no tablet mode inside of it.

The source code for the tablet UI was completely removed by Google in 4.4 AOSP. In previous editions (namely 4.3), the code was still there, they had just 'disabled it', so it was possible for us to tweak the old code and keep it useable. Not quite as easy in 4.4 since someone will need to either re-invent the way Tablet mode is done, or back-port the old code.

I thought I saw a news story recently where someone made an xposed module to do this.

I was one of the people who always handled navbar/tablet code, but I've not had the time to be active in AOKP development in quite a while.

Maybe one day.
