I'm a fan of your Rapier Skin since the first screenshot I saw - and v3 is now all I ever dreamed of. I already loved using the older versions, but noticed some glitches here and there which got fixed in v3 now. Thanks so much for all the work you've done.

So I assume all views also work for music, right? I see no music examples in this thread which is a bit weird...

Yes, all the new views work for music also. My music library is a mess at the moment so I couldn't make any decent screenshots..
