blur with a darker tone (real quick mockup). think it doesn't draw the attention away from the focused item as with no darken.

I'm personally not a fan of the blur, but as long as it's optional, it's definitely a good idea to implement.

Code:
<label>MOVIES</label> to <label>VIDEOS</label>
and link it in Aeon settings to the dir u want

Oh! And there's a new version up. Just a few fixes and additions. The music info dialogs aren't quite done but they're more or less there.

I know I saw it somewhere. But now I can't find it. The soundpack for Aeon. Anyone know where to find it?

I also wonder what kind of image you use as a startupscreen when starting XBMC. Is there a Aeon-specific image?

Since the included font cannot show international characters, and thus is a problem for all non english users, I would like to suggest to include an alternative font. Or at least put up instructions of how to switch font. Just a friendly suggestion :-)

oh man... thats just... this is... wow. great work dude. In my opinion though, the file manager should be the main focus right now (unless fatal bugs are found)... but anyways

@ eqequeone: thanks for getting that link up before I got to it

Duncan, thanks for the Backpack... It's a marvel... also love that u've managed to do a music info window... looks great... actually... the new context menus all look great... and DjOKtave... I think it'll be done soon enough... he's doing all the context menu work now, and i believe the file manager might be one... so, fingers crossed...

Thanks again DJH!!!!

the update is great! thank you so much for the shutdown bar back!! .. small question about that tho , how do you set sleep ? .. i see custom shutdown timer but no way to just use the default values .. in PM3 you push up or down on the shutdown button itself , could you make it left and right on the current button ?

awesome as usually tho , thanx for the backpack to!

The Sleep stuff is something I need to look into, tbh. The focus was more on getting the stuff in place before tweaking every option. I'll look into it, though.
