Development version
GMD Gesture Control 7.0.0 - beta
Changes:
- Graphical gestures - enabled
- UI update
- A lot of internal refactoring and other changes

Join GMD Beta Testing group then join Gesture Control beta (link inside group) and follow the instructions.

FEATURE PLAN

Planned for next release:
- Settings backup/restore
- Gestures export/import
- Gestures groups - full functionality is not defined yet, but it will be possible to export/import whole group. I think this will be helpful concept overall, for example I could add whitelist/blacklist for group, etc.
- App blacklist/whitelist for each custom gesture
- More starting zones
- Ending zones
- Gestures rejection when using S Pen on Note's.
- LaunchPad speed improvement
- Multilanguage - I will add a couple of languages that I speak, but will post message files and will update translation if community submit it.
- Status bar modes - status bar hiding is widespread in custom roms now and I will add option to select what method should be used: built-it, CM/Paranoid (where available), shortcuts (in case you have some other app that can do it), etc.
- Cycle LaunchPad app action - it will switch to next/previous app in LaunchPad.
- Remove killed app from recent apps
- Other fixes
- Disable gesture only in keyboard area
- Sound notification for gesture execution
- Stop/start GMD service shortcuts

Not decided if it makes to next version or later:
- Graphical gestures
- Lock screen gestures
- Extended LaunchPad actions - kill app, etc.
- GS Pad

Definitely won't make into next version but will be added in later versions:
- Volume/Brightness control

Other tasks (tasks that don't have plan, but will be added whenever I decide to work on it):
- Cut/Copy/Paste action
- Custom string "type" action
- Disable gestures when Notification window is open
- "Strict" starting zones - starting zone that consumes touch events immediately, it would effectively prevent interaction with running app when doing gesture from that zone, but would consume click events too (same like other applications that use overlays for triggers).
- Mobile data trigger action
- WiFi hot spot trigger action
- Flashlight trigger action
- Screenshot action
- Kill all apps action
- Detach LaunchPad items from LaunchPad position. I.e. allow to share same items in different LaunchPad positions, and allow to have multiple LaunchPad in same position.
- Custom Hold gesture timeout.
- Screenshot action

will test this when i get home

but thinking something like this would be helpful when playing videos full screen - right and left for fast foreward/rewind, up/down for volume up and down, diagonal for brightness

another thought is for first person shooter games

and finally a gesture to toggle it on and standby

Root access is needed. Tested on Honecomb. ICS not tested (hide bar definitely working only on Honycomb at the moment)

Please try it out and let me know what you think. What other features or actions would be helpful?

Doesn't seem to do anything, other than displaying the command onscreen (eg. back and home). I'm running CM9.

I'm considering multitouch. When I tried it, it felt a bit awkward for me, but I might add an option.

Thanks. I developed on 7.7 stock and tested on friends 10.1 stock, but I hope to get my hands on 10.1 for longer time (maybe next week) and try different firmwares.
CM9 not available for 7.7 unfortunately. But good to know that gestures are registered on ICS, so I think I can make it fully functional.

Same issue for me with AOKP, gesture text shows up but nothing happens.. I think there is great potential with this, your work is much appreciated!

Really nice. But like the other, it shows the gesture, but nothing happens (CM9)

Would be awesome, like an iPad, 4 fingers swipe to change between recent apps

Changed gestures to multitouch, fixed bug that might prevent actions from execution (after gesture is detected and message shown).
However ICS still not supported (don't have device yet).
