so what's going on behind the scenes?
lots and lots of small layout tweaks have been made
and along the line some bigger features have been implemented:
currently i'm almost finished with one of a few new views.
this one is inspired by a mockup phyek posted last year.
i'm actually quite happy with the result myself:

Every day the skin improves by leaps and bounds, as evidenced in the constant development in the svn repo. I am impressed by how sleek and stable the new additions are to the skin.
The wallview looks brilliant, and I am sure you have some other treats up your sleeve. Thanks for the progress report, Ronie.

Ronnie the work you have put into this skin is amazing, I look forward to seeing the new results, will this be the new ver 2.12??

would it be possible to rename the menus?
the idea, is that my "tv shows" and "movies" menu items are for already-sorted stuff, while I'd like to use the "videos" menu as my temporary storage location for stuff. like any BASIC media player, simply filenames and play.
Maybe rename it to "downloaded", or "NEW"
personally, a VERY cool feature would be that when you highlight an episode/movie, that after a few seconds your entire fanart background turns into a preview, playing 3-5second bits of the selected video in the background

The Wall view looks absolutely amazing. Great work, as always. Can't wait for the new release.

the main menu items can't be renamed...unless you modify the skin code.
but you can create several custom submenu items for Videos and point them to separate folders. for instance 'Home Videos' 'Documentaries' 'Unsorted', etc..

not possible in xbmc.

Hanging out for the new version!
On a side note, I recently setup a media box for my mum and after going through the plethora of skins available, even she thought Transparency was the best! lol

I noticed the wall view for music videos has been canned and is for movies only in the latest SVN.
My music videos section is populated with live DVD rips and it looked cool with the wall view.
Any tips on modding it back would be appreciated.

in View-Wall.xml, change:
<visible>Container.Content(Movies) | Container.Content(MusicVideos)</visible>

Cheers for that Ronie, I use fanart view for movies, so this lets me enjoy the great job you did on the wall view
