Aero Glass for Win8 RC4

Recommended Posts

please focus on the Win8 RTM version and release the final before creating the 8.1 version.

:angel

Yeah, it's almost ready, just need to create installer etc. I did some last changes (mostly fixed bugs reported here and finished symbols downloading to be WinUpdates-proof) and do not intend to modify it more, I'm just not sure whether to risk it and release it directly as it is now or give one more RC to test.

I think you should release it as version 1.0, and if any issues arise you can release an updated version.

NoelC: I didn't check more but it looks that Win8.1 windows still have a small shadow thus it should not be the problem to increase its intensity via theme resource.

Btw, I played a bit, it's a glitchy as hell but:

However, the testing versions will be available on invitation only.

I'm impressed, that was very quick work (buggy or not) :). Nice job.

+1

I am also really impressed, 8.1 + aero Blur will be hel of a OS.

This solution should be honestly putted in the Windows Store when it is completed. I gives so much more to Windows 8.

Thanks Bigmuscle.

I'm a huge advocate for this software as it brings back what I think is one of the key forward thinking concepts in GUI design.

I was so glad when I stumbled across this project, and RC3 works flawlessly.

I'd be willing to help out with a Windows 8.1 version of the project if you'd like. =)

The screenshot probably doesn't show how glitchy it is, but it looks great from the screenshot!

i have an error when i import the key swatches.reg

show me the way to import this reg

You need to take ownership of that Registry tree, then only you can edit the values.

@bigmuscle: Release another RC before final, so we can test it. We should make sure the final version is as less buggy as possible.

and also count me in for private beta testing!

Good! This way we can test the installer along with Aero Glass.

Aero Glass is looking better and better with more Aero Glass capable themes coming to Windows 8.

Offtopic, what is the software you use to show the dl and up speed near the right below corner ?

NetSpeedMonitor, if you are using Windows 8, run the setup in compatibility mode (set to Windows 7).
