This is one of the must have apps on my phone.

Best looking and is my most frequently used launcher/app. The app drawer plug in is extra cool---being able to go to the list of apps from any screen w/o navigating home first, is so useful. Update: emailed the dev(s) with a request and received a (quite promising) response. It is excellent that they consider their user base.

Changing icons by picture doesn't work & icon packs not detected Other than that I'd like to see font configuration and some other changes but basically like it. Recents mode does seem to work either (Android 5.0.1 on Nexus 5). Its basically like ObjectDock /RocketDock on Windows :-)

Are we going to see an update? I use wave launcher daily and love the concept. The simplicity of it is something that I have yet to find in any other app. Yet it hasn't been updated for ages and it's looking OLD! The developer could make good money on this 😉
