Sweet, thanks! Just a note here. You have to uninstall the previous version first. It doesn't automatically override it when you install :/

What are the changes from the current version of MSE?

Not really expecting anything breakthrough. Probably just an improved detection engine, performance optimizations, and updated design (metro theme?).

I'm liking this. If there's one thing that my OCD self would really appreciate, is if the background of the interface was a vector instead of a bitmap image that got pixelated when the window was maximized (and is somewhat aliased at the bottom).

Pretty much made a spot on prediction on anticipated version features. :rofl:

On a side note, I'm really sure how much more "simplified" they can make the UI. The current UI is pretty noob-proof as it is.
