Changed in 1.3
-fixed xprop flickering in/out during a recycle/loading when the style cp is closed.
-fixed a typo (styless >> styles)
The amazing wallpaper, Solitude by theregisteredone, used in this release's screenshot can be found
It matches the user style I left in.
This is a tortured version of FB Lite, but it has so much more.
First, as a general rule of thumb, options are accessed by middle clicking the item you want
to change. For example, if you want to change the time to display 24hr format, just middle click it.
If you want to make adjustments to the popup, like change the its gradient to vertical, just middle
click the start button popup in the top left, and so on. There are misc options in the shift left-click
popup, which is also where the Style Controls and Font Options are found.
-The color control panel (now Style Controls) is still there. In addition to the orginal
options for complete control over the theme's color, it now includes an option to toggle a font
shadow on/off, and set the color of the font shadow. But wait, there's more! I've intergrated
an xprop to enable easy picking of colors. Say you're running a Visual Style and you want to make the
theme match it, simply mouse over a color, lock the xprop's window (via a hotkey - I included a simple
setup for that too!) and right click the button you want to add the color to.
-Aside from how the color controls make this theme dynamic, there is now a font option.
You can choose any font on your computer. The neat part is, the bar, popup, command, and amp will
automatically grow or shrink itself to accommodate any font size!
-There's now a floating amp and command prompt. The cool thing is, they can be resized on the fly!
Want to see the entire long command you're inputting? No problem. Grab the right edge of the
command and stretch (or shrink) it! Same deal for the amp. Grab that right edge and stretch...
the text readout and buttons all automatically resize and reposition themselves. It's pretty cool
if I do say so myself. =)
-Auto-hiding shortcuts bar. You can also select them to be manually opened with a click or lock
them open, or even lock them shut. Want more or less shortcuts? Just grab its bottom (or top if
the bar is down) edge and drag! Set and clear shortcuts with simple clicks.
In addition to the above there are tons of other options, like the time/date can display just the time.
It can display 12/24hr formats. Taskbar buttons can be stretch across the whole bar, or turned short.
Icons can be turned on or off for the taskbar and popup. The popup has an option to change its default
icon, or turn it right off...which also affects the start button's icon.
I've tried to detail everything in the readme.txt, so check that out for even more detail/options. Also,
everything has a tooltip (which can be disabled). Any problems, just leave a comment or email me.

FANTASTIC work! It is wonderful having eveything customizable without ever having to dig into the configuration files. And thanks for making mouse clicks work in a consistent way. And thanks for adding the font customization. (It won't display italics, by the way, but otherwise works like a charm!) Thanks!
