    • Border around OSD text on Windows 2000 or later
    • User selectable font, and option for bold and italic
    • Change position: center, 4 corners, 4 sides...
    • Change spacing between screen border
  • Mosaic TaskSwitcher
    • Mouse tracking selection
    • User configurable selection border width
    • Keyboard navigation support
    • A scale option for the mosaic window
    • Option to show name of app at all times, not just in tooltips
  • Enhanced AltTab TaskSwitcher
    • Removed the 'note:' text
    • 32x32 or 16x16 icons in list mode
    • In list mode, enlarged selection box (as option)
    • The Enhanced TaskSwitcher now displays the app-icon in the top-right or top-left
    • Option to hide the top-left icon.
  • New task command to rollup/rolldown active window
  • Add option to allow double click on title bar to rollup.
  • Add "min to tray" to windows/system menus.
  • Add a "Duplicate task" in task editor
  • task editor -> double click should open props; single click on + sign should expand

The following bugs have been fixed:
  • Enhanced AltTab TaskSwitcher -> wrongly focussed window when window has a dialog open. (fixed only for 2000/XP or later)
  • Fixed some serious issues with the Shell Enhanced Applications feature when applied to for example Windows Explorer
    • When fullrow select was activated, sometimes part of the selection wouldn't be redrawn when an item was un-selected
    • The info-tooltips didn't work when hovering a folder/file in the fileview in Explorer
    • The selection rectangle wasn't drawn translucent anymore on XP
  • When a window is minimized normally, MinToTray last visible window will restore this 'normally' minimized window.
  • Save the Settings immediately when closing the Settings-dialog
  • alt+shift+tab didn't work correctly the first time to open the Enhanced AltTab TaskSwitcher window
  • Apply-button in settings window doesn't move when resizing window
  • Tweaked backend some more
  • Outlook xp/2003 address book can only be showed once when ShellEnhancer was running

Can a person download these interim builds? If so, where? :lol:

No, these are internal builds that can't be downloaded. It is just posted here so that people can see what has been fixed and what new features have been added.
I can't yet put a date on the next release.

If you wish to get informed when a new version is released, you can register a copy of your ShellEnhancer (registration is free).

Sooo... how is it coming along? I can appreciate that you may still not be able to specify a release date, but some news to keep my interest would be great.

I'm just too busy lately and haven't found a lot of time to work on ShellEnhancer :(
I'm trying to get the next release of Wallpaper Cycler ready, but the final few percent of a release always take the longest time to finish. I still need to fix the help-file and stuff. When it's finally out the door, I can again work on ShellEnhancer. Note that the todo list of ShellEnhancer is quite big as can be seen at http://www.nuonsoft.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=165
