It’s been a really long time without updates for ADW.Launcher, really really long time.

ADWLauncher Ex was updated “more recently“, but from now on things are gonna be different.

Since ADW/Ex 1.3.3.7, both applications share a common core, making them easier to maintain and improve. Expect much more from this, really.

Maybe some of you wonder why the free ADW.Launcher version went from 1.3.6 to 1.3.3.7. It seems a downgrade, but it isn’t. As I’ve reworked both application’s core from the ADW Ex codebase, I decided to stick with ADWEx version codes. That’s all.

This is the “complete” changelog, but there’s much more under the hood.
