Power8 - Start menu replacer for Windows 8

  1. #51


    skallal,
    as well as blocking Metro this will be an intrusion to the system (undesirable because we declare Power8 as non-invasive solution). Technically it is possible, but I'd like to have RTM version first. And the settings window. Anyway this should be on the top of features list for 1.5.

    Hi everyone!
    We were silent about Release 1.0, but it... well, it happened some time ago.
    Today we released Hotfix 1 for version 1.0. And here go great news with this version:
    1) the hotfix contains a number of stability improvements (see https://code.google.com/p/power8/wiki/Changelog ), in particular, Power8 won't die anymore in unpredictable moments, for example when you working with network files;
    2) this version is tested on both builds 8400 & 9020. Power8 works with W8 RTM!

    At the moment we're in progress of collecting your requests and ideas for further versions. Please take a look at the https://code.google.com/p/power8/wiki/FeatureRequests page and if your wish is not yet noted/discussed - feel free to comment here/there or write us an email.
