[WIP] DeltaLaunch

DeltaLaunch is a new WIP Homescreen (qlaunch) replacement / rewrite that is built from the ground-up to be fully customizable and modular. It is exclusive to ReiNX and is still in very early stages, so we do not necessarily recommend it for everyday use just yet. But if you want to get a sneak peek at what is to come - feel free to download this alpha build!

Please do not report bugs, as much of the functionality is unimplemented. Instead please recommend features that you would like to see!
