We have been telling you about Lawnchair since 2017, since it is an alternative to Nova Launcher based on the Pixel launcher, open source and with a fairly high degree of customization. In December 2019, its version 2.0 was released with important new features, but its development has been stalled since December 4, 2019.
As they reported on their Telegram channel, Lawnchair returns to the fray after a little over a year. New versions are coming, big improvements and an adapted functioning for Android 11
Lawnchair already has two new alpha versions and is working on optimization for Android 11
Lawnchair is an application created by Tillie Kottman, developer in charge of projects like Deletespace.ch. From Lawnchair’s own chain in January the developers asked, since the team that was in charge of its development could not maintain the project.
Since our small team of developers cannot work on Lawnchair, we are looking for Android developers to help us secure the future of the app. Even with an hour or two off a week, you can help restore Lawnchair
Weeks later they report that they already have a team of seven developers for this project, so the development of this launcher returns. Lawnchair is based on Launcher3, the basic AOSP launcher to which they add different functions.
We are introducing a new version scheme. The main version number reflects the version of Android on which the main application is based. For example, the major version of Lawnchair based on Android 10 Launcher3 is called Lawnchair 10. And we call our next major version Lawnchair 11
They indicate that Lawnchair will have a new version scheme, your name will now be called like the Android versions. The version based on Android 10 Launcher3 will be Lawnchair 10, the one based on Android 11 Launcher3, Lawnchair 11, etc. Likewise, they announced new alpha releases.
With a new development team dedicated exclusively to this project, it is expected Retake Lawnchair Support to get him out of the abandonment in which he had been plunged since 2019.
