Ok, that's weather improved. The problem i was having was some on the new weather icons (like mist) blended in to the list background, so they didn't stand out very well and sort of disappeared.

Cheers

Update...

Still working away! There's a few other things i've sorted that i'm going to chuck in for the release, like a 'welogrey' theme.

Out of respect for Welo, the welogrey theme will be default, with a 'liquidblue' theme as optional (liquidblue has been used on my alpha releases to date... welogrey was Welo's original mockups).

tuckbodi has a cool 'greenjeans' theme in the works as well! Big Grin

Cheers Wink

Nod Glad to hear that, since I was never a fan of 'liquidblue' version.

Brutal, but honest!!! Big Grin I totally understand as it was how Welo intended it, and was always on the cards to return.

Good news... a spot of beta testing has taken place! Big Grin Thanks to tuckbodi and nemulate. There's a few other users i'm waiting to hear back from as well, so more testing to come!

Anyway, beta testing so far has highlighted some small bugs, plus given some great feedback and a few ideas. As a result of the feedback, i'm going to get a tv show banner view in for release. This will delay release a bit however it will be worth it.

Rock on... Wink

Quick update...

I have 1 dialog screen left, and the TV banner view to complete, then we're ready for the official initial release i think!

I'm away working this weekend so it won't be before then. I have a clear idea of when, however i'm not going to say as you'll all murder me if i don't hit it!!

Cheers
