After you update app to this version, you have to re-authenticate your Facebook credentials by pressing Menu > Preferences > LauncherPro Widgets > Facebook Widget > Facebook Login.

However, in this version Facebook Widget is available only for users of LauncherPro Plus, a paid edition of app.

Old versions

Below are the earlier versions of LauncherPro. If you are aware of a newer version of LauncherPro or an older one, which is not listed here, please feel free to add it!

LauncherPro 0.8.1.0

Description/changelog of LauncherPro 0.8.1.0:

Released: October 5, 2010.
- Fixed a bug where selecting Monday as the first day of the week on the Calendar Widget would result in wrong days being marked as busy in the widget.
- New: Bookmarks popup. This new dock popup gives you quick access to your bookmarks. Just like the Bookmarks widget, the popup only works with bookmarks stored on the standard bookmark database in your phone, so if your browser of choice doesn't use this database, you'll need to export them to the main database (if your browser has that option) or add them manually into the stock browser.

LauncherPro 0.8.0.0

Description/changelog of LauncherPro 0.8.0.0:

Released: October 1, 2010.
- 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.

LauncherPro 0.7.9.0

Description/changelog of LauncherPro 0.7.9.0:

Released: September 21, 2010.
- Increased the sensitivity for swiping through homescreens. It should respond to shorter swipes now.
- New: Customizable homescreen grid size. You can now choose how many columns and rows of icons/widgets to have on your homescreens (Preferences > Homescreen Settings). There's also an "Auto-fit items" option which will resize the grid cell size to match the grid dimensions, so that widgets/icons don't overlap.

If you increase the grid size and move stuff around (or resize widgets), and then want to decrease the grid size again, make sure to revert your changes, otherwise some widgets will be unusable, and some icons might fall off the screen.

Description/changelog of LauncherPro 0.7.8.1:

Released: September 11, 2010.
- Fixed the bug introduced by feature "Ability to use custom icons and labels on homescreen shortcuts" in the version 0.7.8.0. The bug was appearing when adding "Applications" shortcuts: if you don't use a custom icon, next time LP is restarted, the icon for that shortcut will be missing.

Version 0.7.8.0:
- New: Ability to use custom icons and labels on homescreen shortcuts. Long-press on a homescreen and choose "Shortcuts". After selecting the shortcut, you'll get a popup with the icon and label for the shortcut. You can click on the icon to choose a custom icon from your gallery, and you can edit the label before adding the shortcut.
