If you need a tester on linux... just drop me a line :-D

Like the concept a lot, though all lowercase is not for my liking.

So even though my head is about to explode (caught a bad cold) I managed to come up with an idea that I think would be cool. Or maybe it will go nowhere, we'll just have to see.
One feature (well, feature is a big word maybe, more like just a nice touch) in reFocus is that there will be a multi-language greeting on logging in and/or starting up, and during startup random backdrops will be shown depending on the time of day.
I know, you're not going to be spending a whole lot of time in those screens, but I thought it would be cool either way.
There will be different pictures for morning, afternoon and evening.
I have already included a couple of nice ones, but I was thinking maybe there are some talented photographers around here willing to let their pictures be included on release.
So, if you are interested send me a link to your picture(s)
1. The photo has to be made by you, no edits of other people's pictures either.
2. Your photo should symbolize either morning, afternoon or evening. This doesn't have to be a scenery picture of a sunset or something. It could be anything really, as long as it symbolizes a time of day. Be creative But of course a picture of your country/city/town during either time of day would be cool too
3. It needs to be good quality (hard to define I know)
You would of course be fully credited.

Moving along, as you may have noticed, the official nightly builds have started to be released as of yesterday.
As said before, this means a release of reFocus is close.
I will be pushing for a release this weekend, however I cannot give a 100% guarantee. I still have some things to fix, and I feel like crap atm. So, hopefully I'll recover in the upcoming days and I will be able to finish and release.
If I fail however, the release will come in the days after the weekend, or possibly in that weekend. Not any later. That's a promise.
Also, this week reFocus will be making an appearance at LinuxTag where Team-XBMC is represented. Coverage on LinuxTag will be posted on xbmc.org in the next couple of days.
I know... boo! boo! for not releasing publicly at the same time, but this came up as an opportunity, but I really want to finish up some things before going public.

Looking at the work you have posted I am very much looking forward to your release, you have a great eye for design and it looks like it will perform nicely on lower end hardware like Asrocks.
That said, get well and release it when you are ready.

Looking forward to this skin!! I still think Focus is one of the best skins created for XBMC.

Will it be possible to add format buttons (720p, 1080p etc) to the poster / list librarymode shown in the screenshots?
Looks amazingly good.

Neato! I'm an amateur photographer so this appeals to me. I have a few shots you can look at that might work well for this idea.
These would probably be good for evening:
If you see anything else you like in the photostream, let me know. I can get you any resolution you need if there's anything you find suitable.
Looking forward to this skin!

I'll take a look in your photostream too. I'll get back to you.
