  • New WindowBlinds config can switch back to Windows XP style

  • Updated WindowBlinds config makes new options easier to see.

  • Adobe CS2 support enhanced

  • Fixed AdMuncher issue

  • Toolbar skin installation improved

  • Full screen background per pixel support for shutdown dialog.

  • Lots of bugs fixed.
