WindowBlinds 6.3 and SkinStudio 6.3 Beta Release

Download via Impulse!

Tuesday, September 2, 2008 by Island Dog | Discussion: WinCustomize News

The betas for WindowBlinds 6.3 and SkinStudio 6.3 are now available on both Stardock Central and Impulse.  This comes at a perfect time as the 2008 GUI Champs starts in just over a month!  The most notable feature in this release is the new skinning option for layer blends, and the improved tree view and maximized edit windows in SkinStudio. 

Other features and improvements in this beta are:

  • Support for a number of blending modes for layers
  • Breadcrumb bar text positioning no longer changes depending on if the window is maximized
  • Do not shift text when button pressed skin option (edit in SKS)
  • 64 bit has had some tweaks to handle bad sizing of the addressbar
  • Shadow effect now works on very transparent things like the diamond taskbar clock text.

If you have feedback on this release, please see the WB 6.3 beta feedback thread.  For more information about WindowBlinds and SkinStudio, visit the websites below.

Couldn't update WB from Impulse. Clicked on Update as it did show the update, but it would start and then stop immediately. No indication as to why. It installed fine in SDC.

I had the same issue, but just let it sit there a minute and it installed. It just didn't show on the screen that it was doing it.

It's not even showing that there's an update available for me. EDIT: Nevermind, I just didn't have "Show pre-release versions" on.
