First this build has no difference from the 0.2.4 version except for removing the themes

anyway this build was particularity released as a "Test" to test the fix for the bug that happens for some users causes the window to jump from it's position, and also for fixing the maximization thing which had to be manually configured through "Active Windows Height", but the main reason is that 0.2.4 contains many new features which may that has been developed at the same time, which i am afraid may cause problems between each other or with old features.
anyway here's the changelog for 0.2.4

ChangeLog For Border Skin 0.2.4 :
- Add : Fully new Exclusion Manager that allows the user to add, edit and remove exclusions
- Add : MaximizedTopLeft & MaximizedTopRight images in the skin
- Add : New Aero Explorer Maximize Border which has the full look of windows 7
- Add : Option "Maximum Speed" which remove the laggy of windows movement
- Add : Option "Transparency" which enables and disables transparency with white background
- Add : "Hide MenuBar" to hide the menu bar of explorer but will be restored on exit
- Add : Word, Excel, Acces, Powerpoint, Realplayer, Windows Media Player to the list the exclusion list
- Add : Option to specify reflection opacity on inactive windows instead of hiding it at all (value from 0 to 255)
- Add : Option to determine corner and top border sizing in the skin .
- Add : a working addressbar but will have the look of vista breadcrumbs
- Add : a working refresh button
- Add : a working Down arrow button which show the list in the address bar
- Add : support for blurring borders under each other.
- Add : fade in and out animation when hovering on buttons
- Add : current skin is checked in the skins menu to determine which skin is loaded

- Changed : "Use Border Skin Title Rendering" is enabled by default
- Changed : "FullBlur" is disabled by default
- Changed : minmum requirnments to .NET Framework 2.0 but 3.5 will have better speed

- Improved : mamory usage, you will notice it in the task manager
- Improved : font when using borderskin title rendering to a better quality
- Improved : ExcludeList.ini is saved with a line between each exclusion to organize it well
- Improved : navigation buttons speed
'- Improved : all themes has corner sizing and an upgraded reflection image

- Fixed : Wronge exclusion to windows live messanger caused only the main window to be excluded
- Fixed : Maximized position and size bug had to be adjust manually from "Active Window Height"
- Fixed : Classic shutdown box doesn't show up when border skin running
- Fixed : Sizing mouse show on non sizeable borders
- Fixed : QTTabbar momentary border flicker issue
- Fixed : again misbehaving of windows position on entering moving state

And other things i might forgotten .

Notes
- Applications like window live messenger has to be add to exclusion list using the "Exclusion Manager"
- "Down Arrow" button will cause the explorer address bar width to change (resize the window and it will return to it's size )

Download the test build :
Mediafire : www.mediafire.com/download.php…
This a 7Z file, you will need 7Zip www.7-zip.org/
Update : new test build, just fixed the trannsparency and the Address Bar flash,  replace the file with one in the program's folder www.mediafire.com/?sharekey=ea…

All I need from you guys :
1 - Download the test
2 - report if you faced particularity any of those two bugs ( the jumping and the maximizing thing) or any bugs

THIS RELEASE IS INTENDED TO BE USED AS A TEST BUILD, DON'T PUT IT ON OTHER WEBSITES AS THE MAIN VERSION, ONLY PUT THE 0.2.4, DON'T UPDATE IT ON OTHER FORUMS EXCEPT WHEN YOU SPECIFY THE USERS TO REPORT THE BUGS BACK, DON'T PUT AS A DEVIANT, THE 0.2.4 WILL HAVE IT'S OWN PREVIEW ON THE MAIN DEVIANT

BTW, i can't be online on the next two days, but your feedback would be very helpful for me

ya i got a bug.the program would really lag after a while even when i turned the blur off and the maximize and minimize button and exit button would slow down when my mouse was over.
komalo's avatar

I need help! I clicked on the "Hide MenuBar" thing, then I went and check in the explorer. I right clicked the top part, then selected the address bar or something like that. Now, my action buttons are missing and I can't change anything! I can't get it back! Help!
komalo's avatar
relax, anything can be fixed, your can use Vishal's registry codes to get back to the default toolbars setup
[link]
just download the regcodes, double click on the "Default.reg" file and click yes

please let me know of the result and i am sorry if the "Hide Menubar" option resulted in that unexpected behavior

NVM I enabled the HideMenu option again, and I did something and blah blah and I got it back. Thx for ur help! This program is pretty cool! One thing though, can you add Aero snap feature like in the new TrueTransparency? Maybe if ur advanced enough, or have some time to waste, you can add a little nice Aero effect, not to be exactly the same, but just to look a bit like it :D
Anyways, nice work!

i will try but the problem is school, anyway i am glad that it worked for you

Wow, i've just tried the 0.2.4 test version and I have to say.... fantastic! The blur seemed to be as fast as the real thing, (although it took almost 50% of my Core 2 Duo 2.00GHz CPU cycles when moving).
The explorer navigation buttons are extremely good now.
A small hint: could you find a way to make the search box live? i mean like the search box in QT Toolbar, I think that is achievable, though is just a small idea of mine.
There are some bugs, like windows borders don't maximize, or sometimes the blur's background isn't accurate.
komalo's avatar
i am so sorry for being late that long in reply, anyway the current problem in live searching is the function it self, to control the icons that shows up in the list view, because i can't hide or show those icons, i can only delete it (not the file itself but only it's item in the folder view)

These are the screenshots:
This is the maximizing bug

And this is the disappearing addressbar bug:

When IE8 is maximized and I click on the right frame the title bar moves to the right and it nearly disappears:

Lol I cannot even make a screenshot .. don't know why .. omg everything sucks right now xD

I think I activate 0.2.3 again :P
komalo's avatar
oh crap, i see it, i am going to fix it, but what do you mean that you can't make any screen shot, anyway, 0.2.3 is probably more stable than the test build, so it would be more comfortable to use :)

I couldn't make any screenshot from the window with the title bar problem, I don't know why :S

I want to help with the test build so bad, but it disturbs my everyday work when suddenly the title bars disappear :P

But I will look for newer updated version of your nice S/W and will try all of them :)
komalo's avatar
don't worry, it would an honor to try my newer versions :)

Is it possible that Windows Task-Manager doesn't work with BS ?
komalo's avatar
it suppose to work with any program, why ?
SEMU-Design's avatar
SEMU-Design Interface Designer
When I open Windows Task Manager with 0.2.4, the BS effect isn't there, just the installed non-aero theme style.

I also detected that suddenly all title bars disappear while using BS. After a restart of BS everything works fine again. I didn't have this problem with 0.2.3.
komalo's avatar
the disappearing borders is really a wired problem :o, it happens to some users and randomly occurs, i am still investigating in it

Frnd , im again trying it and again found it fast enough :D

Moreover it now support animations , lol i could check it last time

hehe

Anyways , plz add White Gradient light on text , as it is unreadable when background is black...

And lastly plz fix that focus problem

i mean when , as i gave the example of deleting a file , the focus is not on Ok when Dialog appears...

I can see what future releases can bring ...[link] (Not in slow lol)
komalo's avatar
hehe I've always wanted to make this effect but I want to make a program that all works on all the systems (including vista with Aero) you know that effect on closing the window on Linux and the window get fired, i want to implement it on windows os,anyway about the White Gradient light i am still thinking for a way to get it, not to mention i am stopping any new feature until i fix and tweak the code, don't worry about the focus problem, it is not hard to fix
