Decor8 1.06 is now available with support for Windows 8.1

Thursday, September 19, 2013 by Island Dog | Discussion: WinCustomize News

Decor8 v1.06 has been released today with various improvements including Windows 8.1 support.
 
Updated:

  • Adds support for Windows 8.1 RTM
  • Added setting for Windows 8.1 RTM to disable the darken effect for the app list
  • Moved Parallax mode to the 2nd item in the list
  • Fix for Parallax mode under some non-English OSes
  • Tweaked to handle the right side color preview better on Windows 8.1
  • Note: Decor8 on Windows 8.1 can no longer customize the number of rows of Modern Start menu items (support for that has been removed from Windows).

If you have already purchased a copy of Decor8, you can get the latest version from the Stardock store (http://download.stardock.com) or from http://stardock.cachefly.net/Decor8_setup.exe.

Note: The update links for the in-app check are updated and work from an older build. Older installers will also prompt that there's a 1.06 and ask if you want to get that.

FYI, Stardock store link is broken -- includes trailing paren.

Should be: https://store.stardock.com/myaccount/products

Island Dog, you should also mention that Decor8 can also no longer apply a consistent background color to your start menu tiles. That function is now based on the primary color of the icon. Per Neil, this wasn't going to be able to be done now either.

8.1 will now natively allow you to set your desktop wallpaper as the background of your start screen also.

Could MS be any more user-unfriendly?  Cripes.
