LauncherPro v0.8.5 is now available in the Android Market. You can also purchase LauncherPro Plus in the market through an app called “LauncherPro Plus Unlocker,” which enables all the Plus features on the free version.

LauncherPro V0.8.5 is an interim update; the full rewrite is still being worked on. If you purchased LauncherPro Plus directly through Paypal, you don’t need the new unlocker at all. Your unlock code will continue to work with future versions of LauncherPro.

Today’s release includes memory savings and scrolling performance improvements.

Here’s what’s new in 0.8.5 from the Launcher Pro Blog

For all users:
Reduced memory usage. This should reduce memory-related FCs (if you experience any).
Improvements to the scrolling performance/smoothness.
Changed Paypal links to Market links.

For Plus users only:
New: LauncherPro Widgets are now skinnable! Widget skins are installed as normal Android apps, either through the Android Market or downloading them from third party websites. Once you install some skins, you can apply them by opening LauncherPro and pressing “Menu > Preferences > LP Widget Settings;” then choose the widget you want to apply the skin to, press “Select Skin” and pick one of your installed skins. After restarting LauncherPro, the widget should have the skin applied. If you would like to make your own skins, please refer to this thread in the LauncherPro forum. Fixed some bugs in the Calendar widget related to daylight savings time.
