I'm back at last with a new post. I've been busy finding skins for the new skin gallery which you may have noticed. One of my favourite skins is the new XeBlack skin by MateriosDragonius, now with ViStart and XeBlack skin all Windows users can make their Windows start menu look like this:
I've also been fixing ViStart and recoding ViOrb. I come baring fixes for everyone! Firstly I've fixed the sorting problem in ViStart 7 now so it correctly sorts programs alphabetically and lists programs before folders (Just like Windows 7 does)
And finally for Windows 7 users, I've fixed the annoying user avatar bug and for my 64bit users I've made 64bit icons display correctly and 64bit apps open correctly too. Which was a nightmare within itself due to the way Windows handles x86 programs on 64bit.
Now let's move onto ViOrb! I've integrated the new blending start menu button from ViGlance and i've also made a built in skin manager for ViOrb.
Now you don't need to damage your computer with badly made transformation packs because Lee-Soft software doesn't make permanent changes to your system files. With a few clicks you can disable or uninstall my software effortlessly and best of all it's absolutely free. You shouldn't need to damage your computer to customize it

A much needed update for ViStart.

After I release a new ViGlance build next month to fix the minor issues people are having with the new build - I will be turning my attention to another project and developing that for a while. At this stage; I am pleased with ViStart's current stability and ViGlance's current stability and I would primarily be focusing on new features for these products (if I were to develop them). However the other projects which are collecting dust such as ViSplore and ViOrb need stability improvements. ViOrb still operates on a hooking mechanism which I decided last year isn't viable (For those unaware - hooking means to literally hack another process and catch the information it receives and process them in your application (Imagine having a mail forwarding on your inbox - It would surely take longer for the messages to get forwarded). ViSplore currently doesn't add anything new (other than breadcrumb toolbar) to Explorer and it still doesn't replace the default explorer correctly. Whilst eye-candy is everything to some users - functionality is more important to me - Eye candy comes after in my opinion. As a user of my own software on my XP machine; I appreciate the new functionality it brings more so than how 'pretty' it looks. I still love a pretty face though. So this is what you can expect;
Also there is a new Project which I am considering developing (Completely unlike the previous projects) which some people may already have an idea what this might be. The new project will be to provide a framework in the form of a scripting language (Based on JScript) where other developers can effortlessly create similar projects to my projects. Eventually to the point it would be possible to re-create projects similar to what i've developed (But with little effort).
