Federico Carnales – famed LauncherPro developer – has unleashed version .8.6 in the Android market and brings with it some interesting changes. One is real homescreen looping. If you used the looping feature in .8.5, you’ll know it wasn’t really looping –  it just quickly bounced you back to the left or right-most homescreen as if you were swiping very quickly. Now, it just appears from whatever direction you’re swiping away from (much like how HTC does it in modern versions of Sense).

Another big feature is support for icon packs, something I have personally been craving for a long time. No new widgets this time, folks, but still a nice update. Go and get it in the Android market.
