After releasing 9.0, I realized shortly after releasing that I haven’t done any theme updates. I also received feedback about missing the authentic elements in new updates so .I decided to make another update focusing on authentic UI. Improved Modern/Metro themes looks even better with glass transparency and Windows XP now comes with authentic port and iconized taskbar button.
After long month of visiting parents, I’m finally back to my place now so I started fixing UXTheme project right away. I’ve resolved issues more than I thought so I think everyone should reinstall this version to make sure that your theme engine is in touch without fail. For users having trouble with glass having redrawing bugs in iTunes, fade effects and so on, Re-installing without Aero glass transparency can fix it but you’ll lose transparency support in return.
Windows 9 Beta will probably be revealed (if not leaked) in this week. So this would be the last chance to update Windows 8 projects fixing all bugs leaving the last version clean, stable and smooth. I hope I get everything covered in this version.
It’s been a long while since last time I cooked my own ROM to use. My Xperia Z broke months back and I’ve just got time to cook a new ROM on my current Note 2 phone recently with full Linaro optimizations including strict aliasing and audio optimizations.
It usually took few months for new version to come up but since I knew it was a rushed release without proper themes so I took a lot of time and effort to read every comment and summarize every little thing that I could to to improve it based on user suggestions. This release will be the most completed, coherent to user feedback as never before. I also fiddled UxStyle a bit more so I hope black screen will finally be cured this time around.
I’ve got a flu since Malaysia trip with my friends on 11th June until now so I couldn’t do much of work recently. I’m still in recovery but it should be fine in next week. I’ve listed all reported bugs and suggestions and tried to implement them one by one. If all goes well, next version should be something like the above screenshot. There’re still a lot of work need to be done but I’ll try to make it out as soon as I can.
