So I forked than began playing around with a subset of Launcher2 after some fixes than many tweaks I think I have it just about right... Here are some screenshots for those who are interested.. This will be the default launcher moving forward....

Source Code for those who want to play :p

As you can see up from the pics it looks exactly the same as the normal Launcher2 but it simply has more options :D

Nice! Are you going to add an option for custom icon selection, or is it just going to use whatever icons come in each theme?

Anyway to put the hide app thing like launcherpro has. I love that it's the only reason I use launcher pro.

Looks amazing, it'll be neat to have an expanded dock and the ability to go landscape. Would it be possible to integrate the LP+ feature of being able to uninstall an app by long-pressing and holding it over the trashcan? It was just so convenient and probably what I miss most about using LP+.

Should add in a option for transparent icons as well. I like to keep my home screen clean, and would love to drop ADW Launcher for it as it's really the only reason I use it. There's bugs in ADW I would like to get rid of, or at least add the option for modified icons so I can make them transparent myself =P

Guys I am mostly building from others work here!!! SuperTeam and Dustin Jorge to be exact... While I did implement fixes and modify the code I am not exactly a great Java programmer, more of a hacker! I have neither the ability or desire to implement super advance features into this project.... This Launcher is pretty much where I want it to, light and fast as hell with a few advance features...

Can't wait for it! I'm personally using ADW & GO Launcher(I have my homescreens setup on both, I switch it up every few days) and I very much welcome an official Gummy launcher to the family :]

That looks really cool, I love the look and feel of the stock GB launcher, its just not full featured enough for me. I've grown to really like Go Launcher, but this is gonna be a really great alternative.

Launcher2 is easy to customize yourself. You can unpack it, edit the images and then repack it and create your own custom launcher with transparently icons and more. I was making my own on the fascinate.

Kejar you are mad genius. The ability to have the expanded dock is exactly what was missing from Launcher 2. I eagerly await this release.
