Hi,

Ok, so i'm currently working on Welo 2. Big Grin

New stuff that will hopefully feature in v2 are...

*PVR support
*Improved textures quality
*Redesigned Recent/Random Items
*Redesigned dialog screens
*Redesigned Movie, Music, Addon, etc info dialogs
*Redesigned Settings section
*Redesigned Weather section
*Rdesigned Movie, TV Show, and Music quick info
*Redesigned OSD's
*Custom Main Menu items
*Custom Home Addon items
*Home art items
*New charms shortcuts to Shutdown, Favourites, Search, and Settings
*Global Search
*Arial font option
*Some new animations
*Some new viewtypes
*Lots of small tweaks and design changes

I'm planning to release in stages, so Beta 1, Beta 2, etc, with features being introduced in each beta. Otherwise it will be forever before it sees the light of day! I'll bug fix along the way.

Some screenshots below...

Cheers Wink

Looks sharp, my fav part is the info screen and context menu also that charm bar is interesting.Wink Is the same font used everywhere because I have an impression it's like three different ones. Blush

There is 3 fonts. Liberation Sans is the main font, with a different font used for the main menus and title / sub-title on recent/random items.

Great job liquidskin76! Always nice to see new ideas and directions.

Q: You say liquidblue theme is gone. Does this mean theming is not planned for the future as well? While I liked welogrey to start, I like to change things up. If theming is not planned, will you be making the textures available?
