Rainmeter 1.0 Now Available

Recommended Posts

A rather exciting development is coming for the desktop customizing world: with its first major update in over three years, Rainmeter is finally coming out of beta. And, among other things, it has a new Enigma upgrade built right in.

Among Rainmeter 1.0's numerous improvements:

- A built-in theme manager, RainThemes, to save and load your setups.

- Complete compatibility with Windows Vista and 7. (Your data is no longer stored in Program Files, which eliminates problems with UAC.)

- New visual options, such as text shadows, transformation matrices and improved anti-aliasing.

- Expanded plugin support for iTunes, WiFi and even Recycle Bin management.

- An official online forum at Rainmeter.net (http://www.rainmeter.net/forum/index.php) for support, discussion, third-party addons, tips and feature requests.

As for Enigma 2.5:

- Enigma is now the default skin for Rainmeter. It is available immediately after installing.

- No more code editing required: a new Configuration tool manages your personal settings, like Google account login, weather code and feed URLs, from a GUI interface.

- Sidebars and themes now scale to your screen resolution automatically.

- Reader skins now support RSS, Atom, Gmail inbox and Twitter.

- Music skin gets iTunes song information automatically; CD Art Display no longer required.

- Multiple new skins, including a miniature calendar, system uptime, wireless signal strength, and even your local sunrise/sunset times.

- Templates are now accessible from the theme manager.
