LOL. You were getting the betas because you have 'Notify me of beta (test) versions' enabled in the Advanced tab of Preferences - and it NEVER is the exact same update: although the version number is the same, the build number is not.

Just a small heads up: Yahoo also made changes to their weather feed at the end of January that broke existing applications/websites using it. Although very rarely used by the Winstep application - if ever - that is one less backup feed that can be relied on.

EDIT: they just white-listed Winstep applications to use the new feed. Of course, now I must change the code to use their OAuth1 authentication in order for it to work again. Sigh. Why can't they just leave it alone?!

Because that would make sense.

Just uploaded a public beta of Winstep Xtreme and Nexus Ultimate v19.4 (to get it you must enable 'Notify me of beta (test) versions' in the Advanced tab of Preferences).

Full list of changes and fixes can be seen by clicking the version number in the top right corner of the About tab in Preferences and then clicking the Change Log button.

This beta, among other things, fixes the temporary folder Grid Stacks opening as a 1x1 icon Grid Stack, and adds compatibility with ObjectDock tabbed dock skins. Would really appreciate feedback on the latter as I only tested this with a handful of ObjectDock themes.

Needless to say, the ObjectDock skin must first be imported into the application via the Import button in the Themes tab.

To apply ObjectDock tabbed dock skins from the Themes tab of Preferences to *all* Shelves, Grid Stacks and Drawers at once, you must change the top left combo box from 'Winstep Themes' to 'Shelf Themes' - only then will the 3rd party themes be shown (same thing already happens with docks, you must change the combo box from 'Winstep Themes' to 'Dock Themes' to see the non-Winstep dock themes). Notice that only OD themes that explicitly skin tabbed docks will be shown.

I was on a car forum talking to someone named Jesse. After 6 months I found she was a girl. I called her "he" and she corrected me and told me she was a female. She knew a lot about cars.

One thing I did find, when you import a theme you can't grab a side to make it longer. The problem is the fonts in the tabs don't adjust, so if it says Programs I get Pro.. Even setting the fonts to the smallest which is 8 I still get the same thing.

Screenshot and name of the theme, please?
