I've begun work on an updated Launcher based on Kitkat 4.4, for devices running anythin 4.1+ (Jellybean up). Please check it out and give me your feedback :). Slowly merging things over from this one, but it probably won't be as much of a monstrosity of options for some time.
** Update 10/09/2013
True to my word, I've decided that as I haven't been able to spend any time on this for the past month, I'll release the source code in the hope it may be useful to someone else. That's not to say this is abandoned, but I can't foresee a time when I will be able to do the complete rewrite I want to any time soon, so I'm not waiting any longer before releasing the code. Thanks to all the users for your kinds words and giving it a chance, and I hope somebody finds the source useful in some way.

(Please no complaints about the sloppy commit logs and lack of comments)
Lennox Launcher is a launcher for devices running Android 4.0+. It is highly customisable, and my focus now is on optimising and improving rather than feature cramming. It's not intended to be the most customisable, but rather have enough customisation to satisfy my personal needs, and focus on stability more than finding more options to add. Feel free to report bugs but please don't complain if its missing a feature that Apex/Nova have, if you aren't happy with what this has to offer then please use one of those, they are both great.
• Support for customising grid size and page counts for homescreens/dock
• Support for adding launcher actions and activity shortcuts to desktop
• Many transition effects to choose from
• Ability to hide apps from the app drawer
• App drawer transparency
• Gesture support (swipe up/down, pinch, spread, double tap)
• Support for Apex & Go Launcher icon themes
• Ability to lock the desktop to prevent changes
• And more...
Please note, on Android 4.0, widgets cannot be added from the drawer. They can be added via long press on the homescreen however. This is an Android permissions issue, which was fixed in 4.1+, and I really don't want to have to request superuser access just to bypass it.
Based on the AOSP 4.2 Launcher, with massive cherry picks from:
ChaOs Launcher (https://github.com/ChameleonOS/android_packages_apps_ChaOSLauncher)
Credit to Icons8 (http://icons8.com/) for the glyphs used in the preferences menu and some of the action dialogs.
Big thanks to Cameron O'Riley for beta testing ;)
