    • Added a setting to disable all Metro hot corners
    • Improved the initial setup of the start menu
    • Added support for split menu buttons
    • Improved the usage of the Aero colorization in skins
    • Fixed some bugs found in the previous version

    Thanks for the good info! I'll try to get used to the new interface before I revert to this, but I don't know how long my patience will last!

    Congratulations on being mentioned in the German magazine c't (October 22, 2012)! (Only the best computermagazine in the world!)
    A few quotes (translated):
    "There are several to choose from, but Classic Shell is the only convincing startmenu alternative"
    "It might not resemble the original Windows 7 menu as closely as the competition, but has a lot more functions, that can be finetuned with countless settings"
