    New version of Launcher Pro is now available in the market.
    No update on the website's homepage. LauncherPro
    Looks like there are a few new options but doesn't appear to be the re-built version yet.
    Backing up, deleting my skinned version and updating now.:D

    Nice thank you for the update. I guess the bounce back to rather than loop scrolling does save a step.

    go to the market>hit your menu button>press downloads>that will show all of your apps youve downloaded, if an update is available it will say so on the right side of the screen (and they are usually at the top of your list) press on it>press update>let it do its thing

    I like the "loop" bounceback. I always thought that would be nice to have.

    But how do you get the dock popup of most recent? The description of it wasn't real clear. Is it just the same as long pressing "home"?

    its ok. nothing huge. it needed the looped home screens so im really glad to see that. the "recent apps" part isnt a big deal (for me personally) cause I never really used it to begin with (we had it before if you just long pressed on the home button, now its just a swipe gesture too)

    yeah it does the same thing but just in a swipe gesture to bring it up now too. Swype up or long press on home button, your choice

    Got it. I actually like it a little better than the long press of the home - looks better and has more recently used apps.
