Thanks to Marco's work, the shell user interface has gained many improvements. Already running apps are now activated instead of starting a new instance when tapping them on the homescreen; the app splashscreen and the panels are now colored according to the app's icon; and the task switcher has gained many usability improvements.
Thanks to Aleix's work, the task switcher now shows thumbnails of the running application and the search field also gained a new look.
Devin has worked on refining the lock screen. It now allows swiping up to reveal the PIN entry field and darkens the background to make the controls more legible.
