Activator tweak
Ryan Petrich pushed out updates to his Activator tweak Cydia

Renowned iOS hacked and developer, Ryan Petrich has released an updated version of the Activator jailbreak tweak publicly, after it went through beta versions. Activator allows assigning various actions that are called in response to the trigger including a gesture, tap on a specific area, the press of a button and change of charging state and other options. This is important, as there are many tweaks in Cydia that depend on it to function properly.

Bearing version 1.9.6, the significant feature of this release is the support for iOS 9. Apart from this, it adds support for shortcut actions in iOS 9. This allows using an Activator gesture to invoke a 3D touch shortcut for the app on an iPhone. Following is the detailed changelog for v1.9.6:
