Looks fantastic... although, "SUI"... doesnt roll off the tongue very well...
I think "Simplicity" would be an improvement! Non?

just a suggestion.

love everything else!!!! looking forward to a test drive.

SUI rolls of my tongue fine, I pronounce it sue-wee.

Maybe thats only because I'm an ignorant Southerner. Big Grin

Looks really nice, can't wait to try it.
I'm not too fond of episode listview but as you said, Freddo is still working on that one.
Btw i also like the name SUI, it's kinda japanese zen-like.

hahaha, you guys are already coming up with names...

let's just say that "sue-wee" and "ess-you-eye" are both fine for now...i pronounce it "ess-you-eye" myself...

anyways, there's a new preview for you ladies, enjoy!

@MikeBeecham: "simplis" sounds way too much like "syphilis," and we wouldn't want a skin named after an STD now would we... Tongue

@rwparris2: yay for ignorant southerners!

can I get a yeee-haw?

I've been pronouncing it Ess You Eye actually, but people can feel free to interpret it anyway they like, I actually kind of like the sue-wee version myself I hadn't thought of it.

Smile Actually it really doesn't really have anything to do with me being a Southerner.

I used to play Magic The Gathering and there is a deck archetype named "Suicide." Then that got shortened to "Sui" (pronounced "Sue-ee," as in the first half of Suicide).

Anyways, everything is looking good guys I'm looking forward to trying it out.

well, the majority of the major viewtypes are all working now, it's just all the dialogs and the OSD stuff I need to concentrate on. I've never made an entire skin all the way to release before though so I wouldn't like to speculate on how long it'll all take. Sorry! watch this space though we'll be posting progress screenshots as we have them and we love hearing everyones feedback on them good and bad.

yep, he said it all. sorry we can't give you a date. but trust me, when we release, it'll be highly usable and will have most of the major features there. we try to post a preview sheet every week, so look out for those, because they give away hints to features...Nod

and we LOVE feedback...

Looks really good, keep up the good work.

re-looking at the previews already posted, I would perhaps throw out one suggestion from a design perspective....that is to see if you can get the cover reflections to fall off quicker and drop their opacity down a little. This would really make the covers stand out and give a more realistic feel.
