What started as a slight mod of Aeon Nox has turned into a full fledged new skin project! Breeze has been in the works since August and now that the alpha release is getting closer (still giving a definite date [noparse]Tongue[/noparse] I thought it was time to update this first post.

I wanted to create a light theme, something which seemed to be lacking when I first downloaded XBMC and this is what came of it (beware lots of images!)...

Home page...

Now playing stuff...

Some views...

Big thanks have to go out to Big_Noid who helped me when I first started editing Aeon Nox (and for creating the skin in the first place)!

I'll try to keep these first posts updated more so than before.

Oooh so pretty! Particularly the OSD is great. Looking forward to seeing it develop.

Are you referring to 2012 as the stable release or the testing alpha/beta phase?

Very nice, but the fonts are to small for my screen.

Looks great. Subscribed so I can watch the progress. Home screen looks great btw. Very much a mix of Alaska and Aeon which is a good thing.

Would it be possible to show the IMDb rating as numbers instead of stars?

Awesome skin otherwise, can't wait to get my hands on it! Big Grin
