Version 1.8 beta uploaded to the beta stream.

- Flip tile has been added
- Widget tiles now cause less lag during fly in animation

Work in progress, the tile editor will look messed up when you select flip drawable. You can't adjust the flip speed. Tile touch animation is pivoted incorrectly. Edit buttons in flip drawabe editor do not work. And lots of other funny issues.

However, you can select freely which drawables are flipped, and you can select what each side does.

Version 1.4 of L8 is now published to market.

Mail counter has been added!
- go to L8 settings -> mail accounts and add your mail account
- once account is up, you can create a mail drawable, and assign the account (or multiple accounts) to the drawable and it will then track the count of unread messages
- counter remembers what messages it has seen. Clicking tile will reset the counter to zero.
- Small help section for giving short instructions for most basic usage has been added to L8 settings
- 12 hour time format has been fixed for clock tile

L8, version 1.3 has been released.

Widget screen has been completely redesigned and it is now much nicer to use. And you can now pin any widget from widget screen to your home screen. However, note that if you remove the pinned widget from widget screen, it will also disappear from the home screen.

There is a new setting which allows you to force widget screen background to be always black. Useful especially if you use white background.

Tile editor is now uses single page layout, preview page has been removed. It has been problematic from the start and it is better to be without it.

Update after a while - I finished the flipping contacts tile, which was surprisingly difficult to create. The L7 version didn't quite fit in L8 and I had to build it from the scratch.

One annoying feature I need to kill is that now animations keep running even when tile screen is not visible. That causes too much lag on older devices and it must be fixed.

Next step is that I go through all the implemented features and fix what doesn't seem to work and then I will upload L8 into play store!

What won't be in initial version:
- cubes (too difficult for now, the horizontal movement integration with view pager is a bit crazy)
- weather tile (argh, there are no free weather providers)
- email tile (I'll need to steal POP3 code somewhere, and better exchange support if only possible, and also merged mailboxes would be awesome)
- scrolling image tile (will be added asap)
- support for nesting other drawables into flipping contact tiles (however I think you can put flipping contact tile inside rolling contact tile)

Version 1.7 of L8 published!

- You can now choose how many widget pages will be available. So set it to zero if you want them to go away. Three is still the maximum.
- Bitmap buffering-option added to the settings. This will allow certain tiles to use bitmap buffers which increases the drawing speed at the expense of the memory usage. It will also make fly animation in 4.3 slightly more bearable, however it is not possible to make fly to work properly in 4.3.
- Nasty "not responding" errors hopefully fixed. Some long-running things were incorrectly being run in the main thread and they are now moved into low-priority background thread.

I just checked this launcher 8 again & there's lot of updates since last time. Thanks for email live tile, Timo.

However I found that counter for email live tile has a little flaw that it cutted by tile boundary. This happens when I got 2 or more digits on counter. It seems that the icon & counter doesn't fit enough to the tile.

Anyway, again, thanks for your hard effort on developing this launcher

And 1.4b is available almost immediately after 1.4a. Mail polling should now resume after you reboot your phone. Stupid timer was persisted and it starts from zero after reboot. Oops.

After a long while I'm about to push new beta out for L8. Mail tile will appear alongside with some fixes, most notably the nasty bug with widget placement is now fixed.

Launcher 8 has been published to the Play Store!

It will take a few hours until it is available, so be patient. It will come visible eventually.

Note: this is not an Aprils fools post, though it might look like it.
