Now it's perfectly implemented.
This skin is really cool.
edit: not sure if it's a xbmc-system or it skin-thingy, but I noticed that viewtypes are not remembered while switching from another skin (in appeirance-settings). It's not a big problem for me, though I thought that it would be good to tell you that...

viewtypes haven't been remembered ever due to the fact that each skin uses different view's and number's, other wise it would cause a conflict when changing to a skin that doesn't use a certain view number. That's what I've been told in the past at least.

Could this also be used to pop up random series from the tv section in the same way (as an alternative to recently added) this could be a cool option to implement as well.

the new overlay for showing the total files (and pages) in the library is a little bit annoying.
Could it be made optional?
I easily loose the focus (for example in list 4) and it hides a little bit of the very clean and polished view while browsing.
The movie-count is nice to see, but it only shows the movies which are listed.
It doesn't show the movies which are in the movie-set, so that value is confusing in the general usage.
(btw, I found out that 'the carmichael' -mcborzu's skin, shows the correct values for Movies including all Movies which are in Movie-Sets.).
Furthermore, another idea could be to implement the Movie-Count into the homescreen in a simple way.
Although I like the Page 'X'-Option, but it would be good to see it as a Static-Overlay thing.
(without the strobe-effekt each time I release/hold the down/up button :-)

I don't use movie sets so have no idea why it's not working as anticipated there - it works fine for genres so I'm guessing I would need to do some sort of hack to make it work for these library movie set views - I'll check out what our pal mcborzu has done and see about replicating it
As you know I'm not a massive fan of spamming the screen with loads of labels - that's why you don't see the weather on every page for instance - so I've thought long about how to put the number of items label in place. That's why I chose to make it only appear when you scroll through the lists at the same time as the alpha sort label appears. I still don't want to make it a static label I'm afraid. Most I could do is make it optional.
In case anyone hasn't seen the new label it looks like this and appears when you are scrolling: (The actual view is just something I've been playing around with - it's not in the skin but the labels are there).
