auto I had a great time beta testing, i hope everyone is enjoying the release.
Rev Man. I so wish some of these features were available in BBLean. heh.
thewayofzen beta testing was fun as hell. thanks so much for letting me take part!!
Pitkon An excellent alternative shell, with enough features to make ur mouth water... Congratulations, qwilk! Of course, I loved the Theme ability most of all (something that I bet will make every themer/style author like me happy) but I enjoyed other goodies, like the middle click/styles-alt+mid
click-themes novelty, the drop shadow effect, the new bullets, the professional and functional all-round approach. Plus, some great styles by qwilk. Now, things I didn't like (I didn't play with the shell enough to know if there is a way around these, so I'm just mentioning them, hoping there are solutions I didn't notice yet): 1) Sub-menus can't be detached from the main menu(s) and they can't stay on top after they r clicked on (something that can save the user lots of clicks). 2) Once u click on the toolbar and/or the systembar to bring up menus and u change ur mind, u can't get rid of them. Right-click doesn't work on the titles. U have to either left click on the toolbar, in the case of the toolbar menu, or to do something silly in the case of the systembar menu :) 3) The height of the toolbar can't be adjusted, even with bigger fonts, something I found rather annoying. Last but not least, I half-expected to see multiamp bb5 included in the package. :) Other than that, the shell works just fine - and it was worth waiting for. Kudos, qwilk!
qwilk Thanks for the great feedback Pitkon! :D I'll see what I can do about multiamp bb5 once I get some coding energy back! =] (drop me an email and I'll comment on the other stuff too... )
