Lawnchair Launcher changes its versioning model and lands two alpha updates for 9.1 and 10 releases

Most of the updates are bug fixes and now the new release track to wait for will be named 11. At the same time, these updates are the first ones after a long break. The project got new leadership and people in the team, as per their Telegram channel.

As we work towards a release with the latest Launcher3 at its core, we’re thrilled to share with you updates to the two existing major versions of Lawnchair.

But first, we’re introducing a new versioning scheme. The major version number reflects the Android release whose home app version a build is based on. For example, the major version of Lawnchair based on Launcher3 from Android 10 is called Lawnchair 10. And we call our next major release Lawnchair 11. We hope you enjoy today’s builds!

Lawnchair 9.1 Alpha 2 addresses an issue with At a Glance where adding calendar events as a data source would show the weather instead.

Lawnchair 10.0 Alpha 8:
• Addresses an issue with At a Glance where adding calendar events as a data source would show the weather instead.
• Resolves crashes on Android 11.
• Introduces the Android 11 app closing animation on devices with a recent version of Launcher3 installed.

As you know, our founder – Tillie Kottmann – will no longer be leading Lawnchair. This is a good opportunity to express our gratitude.
