    It's the ancient Egyptians trying to tell us about 2012! Forget the Mayans! Ahhhh!

    Thanks, but that's too early for "good job". We're working on 0.3.5 - there it will be at least "not so bad job" I think

    Minor cosmetic thing: Installed with msi installer, and it shows as 0.3.2.0 version in programs and features. Is 0.3.5.0 in program files though.

    Yep, forgot to pop the version in installer file
    Thanks for the hint!
    It will bring no problems, will change in 2 weeks.

    I've added note in MSI description on this.

    Hello people!

    We released Power8 Alpha4 yesterday!

    This time it's 3-way search, and better layout on non-Aero systems.
    I suggest reading Feature Details page of Power8 wiki to get deeper understanding of Search feature.

    P8 should update automatically, but if not - use Download section of Power8 site.

    Please post your feedback here or via comments of P8 site/directly to developers, we appreciate all ideas and suggestions

    Best wishes!

    installed the MSI version and it did nothing. Ran the program and nothing. Found no way to access the program. It did make my Hard Drive spin like mad.

    Zip version worked fine however.
