Lots of Crystal and Lion Updates

Lots of Crystal and Lion Updates

Recently, I've posted a number of updates to Crystal Black and related applications. Here's the run-down: Crystal Black 1.4. Besides adding 10.7.4 support, this update adds several new features, enhancements, and bug fixes. See the Crystal Black release notes page for more info. Crystal Black for iTunes 1.3. This update adds support for the latest version of iTunes, 10.6. It also supports versions 10.1-10.5. System Graphics for Crystal Black 1.3.

Last month, I released a major upgrade to CrystalClear Interface... version 2.6. The software has so many new features and enhancements that I actually raised the price from $12 to $15. However, CCI 2.6 would only work on Snow Leopard (Mac OS X 10.6). Earlier this week I finished work on CCI 2.7, which brings all the great theming power of version 2.6 to Lion users (specifically, version 10.7.3). Note: The upgrade is free for users who have purchased a license for CCI prior to May 10, 2012.

Hi, it's nonintuitive, but you must open System Preferences -> Desktop pane. Deselect the checkbox that lets you use transparency in the menubar.

Hi Leland
I got a question about your iTune Theme Cristal Black.
I followed your instructions and clicked the installapplication.
For your information, I use an iMac and got the Mac OS X Version 10.6.8.
Your App tells me: Could not find iTunes
What´s wrong?
Would appreciate, you´d help me.
Your Theme looks great and now I want it! :-)
Thanks, Heiko
