This package contains the following themes:
1. The original Samurize config.
2. The new Rainmeter theme.
2a. CD Art Display styles to match the theme.
3. A bonus Samurize config called “Arcs.”
Step-by-step instructions are included for each.
This isn’t a feature avalanche like the last one; I focused instead on making the existing stuff cleaner, faster, better organized, and easier to use.
– Toggle is a button that shows/hides all of the Sidebar items on command. Very helpful for keeping a clean desktop.
– Gmail Icon now lights up when you have unread mail.
– I added a third form of MoxaWeather that lets you toggle the three-day forecast on and off.
– I’ve provided black icons for every skin that can use them, including MoxaWeather. It’s now a ten-second job to invert the colors for any skin.
Now for the real stuff:
– Most dramatically, the Home skin, shown above – a clickable menu for activating skins and switching between variations. (This one was bloody grueling to write.)
– I should have the long-awaited .EXE installer ready by this weekend.
– I’ve included a set of templates – basically replacements for Rainmeter.ini, so you can load a working setup right out of the box.
– I went through and optimized update speeds for nearly every measure; there’s a noticeable performance boost for several skins.
– Added an invisible background to Notes, Reader and Systems to make them easier to drag.
– Reader now has individual links for each story.
– I downsized the Launcher set; there’s only one button/menu pair now, and the menu doesn’t disappear when you launch things (by default). The one I kept is the Apps launcher; the shutdown, etc. links were clearly too fickle for most people.
