A new version of LauncherPro is now available to download from the Android Market. Here’s what’s new in 0.8.0.0:

For all users:

  • Fixed force close issues when setting the homescreen grid rows/columns to 1.
  • Fixed the problem where increasing grid size with auto-fit would make it hard to move items to the bottom right area of the grid.
  • Changed folders to always open full-screen regardless of the grid size.

For Plus users only:

  • Fixed a force close issue with the Friends widget.
  • Fixed the Friends widget not being able to post comments to Facebook.
  • Added an option for the Calendar widget to set the week to start on Monday instead of Sunday (after releasing the update, I found a glitch where busy days are marked wrong with this setting on, will be fixed later today in 0.8.0.1).
  • New Feature: Dock Popups! A perfect complement for dock notifications and dock swipe actions, the new dock popups give you quick access to information without leaving LauncherPro. In this release I’ve included two popups: Missed Calls, and Unread SMS. More popups will come in future updates.
     
    To enable them, long-press on the desired dock icon, choose “Swipe gesture action”, then “Show Popup…” and choose the popup. Now when you swipe that icon up, you’ll get a popup showing you the selected information.
     
    Both of these popups mark all items as read/viewed when you open them, so they’ll automatically clear the dock notification bubble. You can click on an item (SMS or call) to open it in their respective apps.

     

That’s it for now.
