ChangeLog: Watercolor Lite v2.1

- This version is built upon the Original Watercolor msstyle base.

- Many optimizations to create the fastest build of watercolor ever

- Small taskbar

- Text margins are now closer together to create a more compact feeling.

- A lot of work was done to make sure the vertical taskbar looks as good as and functions as good as the horizontal taskbar.

- New start button layout, It’s now a bmp in which the end user can change to whatever they please using reshack or style builder.

- New Substyles Added: Olive and Silver from Previous Watercolor builds, and a New substyle colour called ‘Violet’.

- Shellstyles scrapped until further notice, the default ‘classic’ shellstyle’s ;)ok better anyways ;)
 
- Checkbox bitdepth bug fixed!

- A few other misc. bugs                               

- Added a taskbar button 'feature' (light highlight text)


Original Watercolor theme credits goto Microsoft for making & designing the Original theme (which was previewed in Whistler builds). Watercolor.msstyles and Watercolor.theme made By Chris O. aka Binary with help from StyleBuilder & TGTSoft LLC.
Brw2k1 and thuggers made most of the shellstyle.dll, Ergonomic colour idea by Dj_Night, and NETknightX fixed the tab bmp's (all from Neowin.n:D) so Major thanks goes out to them :D
And of course thanks goes out to all the people t:)t gave bug reports and suggestions :) (also mostly from Neowin.net msg board) And thanks for Hosting Watercolor goes to Alex Kelm, of AlexKelm.com

2 things:

Were there any changes in 2.0 outside of the new colors? Not that I've ever found any bugs, but if there were fixes I'll update otherwise ergonomic is all I need :)

Also, weren't there plans for a watercolor webpage with all of these resources? It would be nice to have a website bookmarked instead of a forum to always make sure I've got the latest version.

When I have time, perhaps I'll make a main page to my site. :) As for the differences, I dont think there are many, if any. Just the updated colour schemes.

Within a few weeks. I'm working on the theme on weekends only, so it's kinda hard to give an accurate date. Plus with all the flamming i got last time I didnt deliver on time... I think I've learned my lesson and dont make release date promises I cant keep :)

The scrollbars in the shell sytle need to be watercolored. I'm sure you knew that though. >.<
