if this is a bug, do i post this in the bug thread?

also, it seems like stacks should show up in a stack box. However in my case, there is no box in which the items are listed. can someone suggest why this would be the case. screenshot attached.

I can see the argument for and against shutdown docklets, and I say: Why not? It can't hurt, and it's a lot easier (for a novice) than making a shortcut to whatever your shutdown tool of choice is.

@Deavy, awesome looking site, man. Am I right in thinking sIFR allows you to embed the font into the page? Or is it a flash based technology or something?

I must disagree! Think bigger' date=' think about all new, non-tech users that will be using this amazing dock. Thinking just about ourselves just don't work for a publicly available product... ;)

Well..I don;t see a need fot that kind of docklet. But u are 50 % right. ;)

Let's concentrate on other stuff ;)

This project has grown very well with our support and I must tell you that on the beggining I was circumspected (if it is the word)

Besides, not all available solutions are [b']safe, not all work for Vista, etc. So, a good out-of-the-box, safe and multi-platform (think many flavors of Windows) is highly desirable!

IMHO Vista is DEAD. A total fiasco. Win 7 is a litt' better but not much :)

Cheers,

1.) resize: It's not possible yet, this feature has be requested before.

2.) stacks: I'm not sure if i understand you correctly, but you are talking about the stack-icons, right? These depend on the skin you are using. Some skins are using the default icons, some don't. But you can change all these internal icons easily, with the help of matongas brand new SkinEditor. You can also add an custom icon onto your stacks, by rightclick -> Stack Icon -> Change :)

Has anybody tried XWD on Win 7, yet? How is it working? What about the docklets? I'm curious! (I have to try it on VirtualBox...)

Yes, anything you suspect could be a bug should be posted there. :)

I don't know if you're referring to:

1. the fact that when initially installed XWD won't use an icon for the closed stack (not even the skin-supplied one; you must explicitly select it), which is a bug since the first stack implementation or

2. the fact that the generated thumb occupies almost all the size of the icon, leaving no space for the illusion of being inside the box; I think an image of the m*c one will show what I mean. Please look at the stack and not at other, distracting things being displayed ;)http://delta909.deviantart.com/art/Even-Flow-102149040

Either case, this is something only bobah can fix (who knows if for the next release?)

vista is a peace of crap :) buggy, slowly and excellent example of MS FAIL!

Other thing is Windows 7 (Se7en). This will be a pretty nice, fast and really good OS.

sIFR is a nice technology that can embed any font via Flash player. Nothing complicated. :)

Deavy, with Micro$oft, the next, yet unreleased version will always be presented as the best, new panacea kind of thing! This beta seems to be well evaluated by Vista users but, remember, it's still almost a Vista SP2 (and built on top of Vista) and nothing more than that. But let's try remaining on topic here, as we'll never be able to impose our opinions over other users and in the end we'll have changed this thread into another 'I love/hate M$' kind of thread...

Hopefully XWD will be kicking a**es at all those 'platforms'! :D

Please help!

This plea for help was ignored, and consequently buried in the F***ING HUGE DISCUSSION ABOUT M$

So yeah...

@sals: you're probably having a problem with a program that renders shadows on windows (like windowfx or yz shadow)

Get that program to ignore xwindows dock and you're set.

I can only speak for myself but a generic 'Please help!' followed by a .bmp attachment (two 'mistakes' in so short a post) will never get my attention... sorry, but I'd have to download and then open a graphics program just for seeing what the generic help call is all about. :slant:

When should we expect to see this new version? Will it be released with the website?

Vvvverrry soon :) Now I'm trying to make real icon's reflection like in our life. It's not so easy and also I'm going to fix some bugs with window's reflection engine... So try to wait for some days (2 or 3)

I just want to publish new realese as without bugs as possible.

thanks all.
