    Windows 8 Transformation Pack 2.0/UX Pack 3.5 Released


     Thanks to Lee's demands to remove all apps from lee-soft.com that is deadly enough to raise DMCA issues despite the fact that I told him updates with stuff removed will be released soon, Windows 8 projects takes rapid updates to solve these problems along with other fixes and updates from Windows 8 Developer Preview. You'll finally get completed transformation packs based on Windows 8 Developer Preview with many new resources and updates that has yet to be seen in Windows XP/Vista/7. Enjoy the most richful contents of Windows 8 today with these updates.

    Keynotes

    UX Pack system update
    I spent few weeks updating tons of UI experiences and system code to be more refined, robust and reliable since the last release based on feedback and suggestions in website. Installing different UX Pack will ask user to remove installed UX Pack first as some people do not notice text in caption bar. Core codes are refined for less operations and no more duplicated code in other places. System files are handled in better manner like using backup files for system files transformation solving modifying the same old files over and over. Improved clearing icon cache code to remove on boot time and add icon thumbnail cache removal. Fixed more possible bugs with backup/restore some files. That's all I can think to improve so far.

    Changes in Windows 8 UI components
    As I mentioned before in facebook/twitter and in this post that Lee has decided that all projects in lee-soft.com shall not be bundled in anything at all, ViStart/ViGlance/ViOrb is now removed in this release and will not be back again. It's quite a shame for his works to be left behind like that but that's what he decided and I have to respect his decision but I still can make Windows XP theme to look good in Metro design so we may not really need them for Metro. I also replaced ViOrb with proper and famous Windows 7 Start Orb Changer by Kishan Bagaria. For User Tile, it seems Windows 8 Developer Preview no longer has it so I left it unchecked by default from now on. You may still try it if you want though. I also added new 'Screen' wallpapers found in build too.

    Windows 8 UI and resources update
    After Microsoft finally sent us such decent build to test and explore. I spent a lot of time digging into system files and found authentic start orb, Metro navigation control/folder icons/loading circle, Windows branding and new tray icons. I also fixed resources that cause Vista/7 unable to render system UI properly like can't access Control Pasnel UI or missing left pane. There's a great theme updates for XP/7 users as well. Sadly that we still don't find any new theme in Vista that can outbest Windows 7 ones though. XP users should be delighted for new Metro Inspirat theme with redesigned from latest build and rebuilt TrueTransparency theme that looks very real and 7 users get dj-corny's Aero 8 Metro Mod 1.66.

    Aside from Windows 8 Transformation Pack, there're few minor updates in Windows 8 UX Pack along with those mentioned in keynotes too. I could says it worths being versioned 4.0 but I've just release version 3.0 few weeks ago. You should consider Windows 8 UX Pack, the most trusted/safe and easiest Windows 8 Theme Pack so far if you're Windows 7 user who is so concerned about screwing up system with transformation pack. Otherwise, Windows 8 Transformation Pack is your best bet that you won't need anything else and it's actually as safe as Windows 8 UX Pack because I haven't seen anything being screwed up enough to not being able to uninstall.
