I'll be out for most of tomorrow morning so just a quick late night email in case it is of help.
I've been testing from 0 to 135 activities in 5 activity increments (have an animation I could upload if needed), and I'd prefer to see the the discrete icon size steps removed (per the original ring codes smooth icon size changes) as the current ring layout does rather 'jump around' as it reaches its max radius (~25-35) and then resizes icons down by a large step, so the ring radius also drops considerably. Once you hit about 40 activities and up, the spiral looks great :)
I'd much rather see Walter ring/spiral patch land as is, than have it delayed and slip the release. Perhaps we can tune it for the bug fix release.
One point I'd like to raise though is that if triangle and square layouts are enabled, they are effected by the spiral patch, I'm not sure if this is intentional? Both triangle and square will switch over to spiral once they reach their max size.
