The following new features will be included in the next release:
  • Reorder Windows taskbar buttons + hotkey for this.
  • New Command: toggle screensaver blocker
  • Add default tasks files containing: maximize, minimize window, run explorer...
  • New Command: copy, delete and move files from-to, + recursive + show warning with summary before copy
  • Add play button in tasks window
  • Run a task when mouse is in a corner of the screen
  • Hide desktop icons when mouse not hovering desktop
    Known Issue: Hide desktop icons is not working on Windows 95: icons are gone, but desktop is never redrawn (try to move a window and see)
  • Always hide desktop icons
  • New Command: Toggle "Show Desktop"
  • Import tasks files.
  • Delay for alt-tab start-preview-generation
  • Added option "Always use XP-style menus" -> Uses XP style menus on all versions of Windows.
  • Use hotkeys to change transparency of active window.
The following bugs have been fixed for the next release:
  • When using the iSkin theme for WindowBlinds 3.3 the Enhanced TaskSwitcher does not work. There is no error message and Alt+Tab still works, just no display.
  • Do not allow F12 as hotkey. F12 is a reserved key for debuggers.
  • Unchecking "Add menu items to the system/window menu of each window" doesn't seem to have any effect.
  • "Zoom Player" windows are not shown in AltTab/Mosaic unless they are minimized.
  • When you assign a hotkey to the Enhanced TaskSwitcher, the hotkey doesn't work unless "Replace Windows Alt+Tab TaskSwitcher" is checked.
  • Mosaic-Hotkey sometimes shows the mosaic and immediatly closes it.
  • Crash when using Mosaic TaskSwitcher as AltTab taskswitcher and pressing AltTab twice fast.

- Reorder Windows taskbar buttons + hotkey for this.

Whooo hoo! As far as I know, this will be the first shell enhancement that allows this in Windows XP.

Great work!

Yes, but in version 1.0 it will be implemented with an extra dialog and not with drag and drop because for the moment that caused a lot of problems like buttons disappearing from the taskbar etc... (See this thread)
