Stardock launches beta DeskScapes 8 for Windows 8

Stardock has released two programs it has made for Windows 8 so far; the Start menu application Start8, which recently reached the three million download mark and the Start screen customization tool Decor8. Today, Stardock has released the first beta version of its third Windows 8 program, DeskScapes 8.

The beta version is now available for those Stardock customers who subscribe to its Object Desktop service. It's a new version of its previously released DeskScapes program. DeskScapes 8 also supports Windows 7 in addition to Windows 8.

Among the features in this first beta release are:

  • Customize your wallpapers with animations and effects
  • Apply over 40 special effects to your desktop
  • Re-color your existing wallpapers
  • Support for custom wallpapers on each monitor
  • Use your own custom image and videos as wallpapers

Stardock has also released a new beta for the Start8 program via Object Desktop. The changelog for the beta shows that it now has a Start8tweak.exe advanced configuration option, along with more additions, changes and bug fixes.
