I'd like to thank the following people:

- Domina, for his help in games part;
- The donors, for making me believe my work is worth it;

- ZombieRobot, for his support;
- And everybody else who made this skin real.


AEON MQ ABSTRACT

It's true that Aeon MQ 2 was a great success, but after several changes it became too bloated, then I decided to rewrite the skin completely.

It was madness, it took me almost 6 months until I could show the results. The last MQ2 build had 185 MB; MQ3 now has 62MB.

All the best aspects of Aeon MQ 2 were mantained, several things were improved and some new ones were incorporated, like skin customization, new styles, PVR support, new scripts and extra packs, offering a whole new level of customization.

At last, a new skin, slimmer, faster, prettier and more powerful than ever.


MAIN SKIN FUNCTIONS

- Customization Wizard: it helps with the skin pre-configuration, in a simple and explained way for any user.
- Lite, Normal, Pro and Super modes: simply choose what suits you better. Now the customization power of the main menu is usable in every mode.
- You can have up to 40 new menus and 200 submenus in all modes.
- PVR support.
- Rom Collection Browser, Advanced Launcher, programs, games and comics.


IMPROVEMENTS ON CUSTOMIZATION

- Different script types support.
- Different submenu background support.
- Unification of shortcuts and backgrounds, now customization is simple and more complete, with just two clicks you can restore all definitions to a buttom individually.


NEW STYLES

- Besides the already known Classic, Horizonz and Darkness, now we have Amber and Metal, different styles for different tastes.


NEW SUPPORTED SCRIPTS

- Movie Sets.
- Watch list.
- Artist Slideshow, which displays artist images during playback.
- Artwork Organizer for Eden users. Now it's possible to have random fanart for music and music videos.
- Video Fanart Splitter for Dharma users.
- ExtraFanart Downloader for Dharma users.
- Artwork Downloader for Eden users.
- Random Items, which changes the way that Multifunction and Reminders items are displyed.
- Support for other scripts has been maintained - cdART Manager, Cinema Experience, Logo Downloader, TV Show - Next Aired, TvTunes, Weather Plus.

first - thx for this release and your great work!

on win32 it's working for me. on my linux machines there are no menu items in the main menu. the background and the items above the main menu are displayed. @ the settings screen there is only a black screen. only thing working is pressing "s" and choose exit. any idea, why it's working in windows and not working on my linux machines?

So far so good Smile

Just a slight niggle on the weather page, seems to display NYC all the time, even though I have changed this to my local city?

Great work, appreciated!
