As of two weeks ago. I was running AOKP on my GS3 but am back to rooted stock now. I may flash back this weekend quickly just to see, but going back and forth is a pain with the whole /0 folder update.
For those using the Nova launcher "direction" is also found under Shortcuts, not Widgets if you access the submenu by long pressing on the homescreen. It's under the "widget" section though if you access via the menu page.
