Small update today to pre beta builds
-Increased widget holder default size
-Increased pulse animation to drawer indicator
-Added reveal animation to group activity window
-App notification indicators dismiss from from group clicks
-Group window dismisses from application clicks
-Code cleanup and refactoring

Working on decreasing the launcher app size. I updated Attribouter library and it jumped size about 1.2 mb so that's probably to blame for the sudden jump. May drop back a version since it may not be needed.

Todays pre beta introduces the ability to use the google searchbar or sesame searchbar widgets in the shelf instead of the GCA Searchbar. Using stock searchbars due sacrifice the gesture listener on the gca searchbar.

Recent apps were centered in the app drawer for upcoming changes.

GCA Searchbar was rewritten as a custom view to allow dynamic changes.

Anyone using Sesame Searchbar in the Shelf, provide details on your experience. Let me know if the searchbar is behaving as it should, if its not freezing and the size is correct. I noticed in landscape mode it stretches abit so idk what it may look like on a larger device or tablet.

I will be looking at a better color scheme/theme system here soon. Its abit boring right now and no way to preview what your actually choosing so il work on that.

Also with searchbar providers. It removes the ability to use recent app actions so i will be designing and implementing my own app actions in the app drawer similar to how pixel launcher approached it during their experimental phases.

Everyone is doing a well job at reporting things in the telegram channel so keep it up. Development is going according to plan with some surprises in the mix. Cheers!
