Screenshot of the current development version (4.1.0.8)

Follow me on twitter to find out what's currently going on behind the scenes!

  • The buttons labeled "3000" are rough implementations of the Fade In / Fade Out duration selectors. 3000 stands for 3000 milliseconds.
  • The toolbars have been replaced and prepared so that they can be configurable later.
  • There's a new unified button for Finish Actions - the old solution looked quite a bit cluttered (especially on Vista)
  • What you can't see here: Right-clicking the progress bar reveals a LARGE slider to set the position more accurately.
