== Detailed Description ==
 
Experimental screenshots of the spiral layout at various stages of development:
[[File:Spiral-home-view.png|300px]]
This version progresses from the inside out.
----
[[File:Ring-medium.png|300px]]
These versions progress from the outside in, making for a less abrupt change between the ring and the spiral. There is also an intermediate icon size introduced between STANDARD ans SMALL.
----
[[File:Spiral-size-standard.png|300px]]
These versions have a looser spiral and more intermediate steps.
----
[[File:Spiral-out-standard.png|300px]]
And some spiral out versions.

Screenshot of released spiral feature showing 40 activity favourite icons. When testing the layout on various screen resolutions the spiral triggers on 800x600 (SUGAR_SCALING=72) @ ~27 activities; on 1024x768 (SUGAR_SCALING=72) @ ~37 activities; on 1200x900 (SUGAR_SCALING=100) @ ~29 activities.
== Benefit to Sugar ==
== Release Notes ==
 
As more Sugar Activities become available, the Home View ring has become less effective as a means of laying out the available choices. The "spiral" extension to the ring enables more Activity icons to fit onto the Home View while still retaining a visual connection to the iconic Sugar ring. The Home View starts off with the familiar ring, but morphs into a spiral as more (30+ on an OLPC XO) icons are added.
