Nova Launcher 4.0 Stable
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.teslacoilsw.launcher

Finally a stable release! After 8 months of development, 14 private alphas and 16 public betas, #materinova is finally ready for stable release.
With this update, Nova Launcher fully embraces Material Design and Lollipop. In addition to cosmetic and animation changes, there are also dozens of functionality improvements such as previews in settings, more control over the icon layout for desktop, dock, drawer and folders, a new grouped widget picker, pull to search in the drawer and widget search.


To the beta users, thanks for testing and providing all the feedback. I know sometimes stable releases after a lawn beta can be a bit of a yawn as you've been using it for weeks, so I've snuck a few small extras into the 4.0 stable release that weren't in the betas.
1) Three bundles wallpapers in the wallpaper picker (And seen in the screenshots)
2) Circle App Animation (Nova Settings > Look and Feel > App Animation > Circle)

Also now that the beta is over, please remember to leave a review on the Play Store and +1 the Nova Launcher page.

Trying to select a Live Wallpaper on my Nexus 6 still doesn't work. Now, after the recent update, just after clicking the Wallpaper icon causes Nova to blow up.

Its more stable now. However, when I set a wallpaper nova appears twice. When i turn off and on the phone I still miss some apps on the mainscreen and the icons of the carpets are smaller than the icons of it each time I open them.
