The latest Firefox 3.7 Minefield now has jumplist support, with Recent links, and "Tasks" Which contains Open New Tab, and Open New Window.

You can find the latest trunk here:

Thats effin awesome, though otherwise that build is awfully glitchy (what was to be expected).

Its not that it crashes, its just glitchy. Window just disappears, minimizes into nowhere sometimes. Extensions doesnt load sometimes. Bet yeah, have to remember to check in a week or so :)

Firefox 3.6 beta now supports jumplists and taskbar previews as well. Though still quite glitchy.

Too bad Jumplist and taskbar progress doesn't seem to be in the Beta 1 of Firefox 3.6. :(

Great list! I would take iTunes off though. I mean, just add forward/backward/pause buttons and that's 7 integration? Give me a break!

At least it works with 7. If I remember correctly it was some time after Vista was released that iTunes would work with it.

This is because Se7enVII has primarily linked to the american Homepage, wich host the very outdated Version 2.09 (current final Version is 2.51) and doesn't advice to the new Beta-Versions, as the original russian Homepage do. The Windows 7 Features are only included since AIMP v2.60 Build 480 Beta 2. Current is Version 2.60 RC1 build 505, wich you can find here ;).

Decided to try the latest Chromium build (29380) And it has Jumplist support.

The jumplist has: Most visited, Recently closed and tasks. And for the record, its pretty darn fast too :p

You can find build 29380 here:

http://build.chromium.org/buildbot/snapsho...m-rel-xp/29380/

Dont mean to sound like a dick, but Chromium builds have had jumplist support for some time now.

I know there was a problem with iTunes and Vista x64. I can't recall a problem with iTunes and Vista x86.

Now? Last version is 0.9.6.9 from 2009-08-22.

Or do you mean that a unnamed plugin adds this functionality?

Yeah some clarification/confirmation and screenshots/references would be nice. Then I can add it to the list. Don't have time to verify all the apps myself.

The new Steam Beta Client adds Windows 7 Jumplist with your recently played games and status/tasks. Also Taskbar progress bar for your downloads. You have to join the optional beta program for the Steam Client to download it (available in File-Settings).
