Updates: Clara Project
Sorry for the lack of activity off-late, been busy with work and etc. I must say I'm impressed with the Windows 8 Consumer Preview and all the cool features. Which brings me to my update: I'll be taking a break from developing widgets for Newgen (sorry, left the Music Widget half-done) in order to focus on my own UI launcher, aptly named Clara. I'm experimenting with different features to implement right now (inspired by the recent Windows 8 Consumer Preview), but my biggest problem would be a lack of a concrete concept. With that, can any of you guys help pitch in ideas and concepts? Current features planned:- - Metro-inspired Applicatio

The New Year
Well, it's 2012, so happy new year to everyone. Down to business, here's a list of the widgets I'm currently working on:- - Pictures widget (similar to the Newgen Pictures widget, but this one will not crash when there are many pictures in the folder. But there is a problem of long loading which I'm trying to fix with threading) - Disk monitoring widget (done, just trying to work on some aesthetics) - Recycle bin widget - GPU monitoring widget - Microsoft Office widget & Open Office widget - Drop Box widget to take advantage of cloud and file-sharing between friends So you guys can look forward to that in the coming month

Widget Requests
In case you haven't already tried Newgen, its an app that brings the Windows 8 Metro UI  to your desktop, courtesy of ftware http://ftware.blogspot.com/p/newgen.html Currently I've released a Games widget and RAM widget, with a CPU monitoring widget almost ready for release. Other Widgets I have planned are:-   - Hard-disk monitoring widget   - Graphics Card monitoring (both usage and hardware specs) widget   - Notes widget So if any of you guys have any suggestions for more widgets, just drop a comment or send me a note, and I'll see if I can make it a reality

By the way how to have a duplicate newgen widget? Say if I want two PicturesV2 widgets showing pictures from different folders, how to go about it? In rainmeter, all I have to do it copy the widget folder & paste it inside a different folder and I am done. But here copying gives me two widgets in widgets bar. But they don't operate independently. Clicking on new copy results in first widget disappearing.

unfortunately, i don't think a workaround will be possible as unlike rainmeter, widgets in newgen are pretty much hard-coded. That said, I have a few ideas on how to implement a workaround, so just look forward to an update in the near-future

Newgen 9 isn't free anymore. That's sad. I mean I respect creator's decision; but that ends my association with it I guess.

wow, didn't realize, been so busy with work to check for updates. I suppose I will just continue to create widgets for Newgen 8, as I doubt I will want to dish out any cash for Newgen 9. So you can just stick to using Newgen 8 if you want

At some point though, I plan to create a desktop shell of my own, but free of course. Just need to gather input on how the design should look like, what functionalities it should have, etc. Thanks to developing all these widgets for Newgen, I've gained a whole lot of experience.
