When Baconit re-launched recently after being rewritten for Windows 10 many users bemoaned the lack of advanced features. However, this was always a temporary situation as the app began to be built back up once stabilized. Now, just in time for Christmas Baconit has received yet another significant update with many new features.
Baconit version 4.3 went live late last night here in the US and with it comes a focus on 'User Profiles, Sorting, Band Wallpaper, And More'. What's even better is the rather detailed changelog associated with the update. Let's take a look!

Combined with the last update that brought full Notification Center support and Baconit is racing to the top again with features, stability and fantastic design (in our opinion). As usual, you can make yourself heard and contribute to the open-sourced project by heading over to www.reddit.com/r/baconit for more information.
