CyanogenMod has doen it again, bringing in some nifty functionality to the ROM for rooted phones that really sets it apart from the pack. CM6.1 RC5 is the latest for the Motorola Droid, and it brings along lockscreen gestures. This will allow you to assign and dictate gestures (much like gesture search) from the lockscreen to quickly pop open your favorite apps and services.
You can get it now for the Droid, but no word when it might reach other CM builds. We get the feeling it will, though.
