Skin archive now includes Milhouse's superb Texture Cache Maintenance utility. The tool can be launched from a new settings option:

Settings>Skin>Advanced>Cache library art

The purpose of this implementation is to cache recently scraped artwork for improved render performance; just as if you went through the tedious process of browsing each texture manually. TCM can do much more, of course. Check it out if you haven't already.

Today's update brings significant change to menus. The mashup of opaque, transparent and drop shadow menus is gone. Backed by a single new texture, context menus, options menus and pop-up controls are now consistent in appearance and window placement. Last but not least, menu transparency is user configurable via a pair of new skin settings.

Settings>Skin>Views>Menu transparency (Off, Low, MediumLow, Medium, MediumHigh, High, default=MediumLow)

Settings>Skin>Views>OSD menu transparency (Off, Low, MediumLow, Medium, MediumHigh, High, default=MediumHigh)

Transparency parameters are located in the skin color files for folks wanting to tinker.

../<skin_folder>/colors/<color_name>.xml

<color name="MenuOff">ffffffff</color>
<color name="MenuLow">f0f0f0f0</color>
<color name="MenuMedLow">e0e0e0e0</color>
<color name="MenuMed">d0d0d0d0</color>
<color name="MenuMedHigh">c0c0c0Cc</color>
<color name="MenuHigh">b0b0b0b0</color>
<color name="OSDOff">ffffffff</color>
<color name="OSDLow">c0c0c0c0</color>
<color name="OSDMedLow">b0b0b0b0</color>
<color name="OSDMed">a0a0a0a0</color>
<color name="OSDMedHigh">90909090</color>
<color name="OSDHigh">80808080</color>

Quick note about today's update. You'll want to enable 'Settings>Videos>File lists>Extract chapter thumbnails' for the best experience with video bookmarks.

Today's update was about having some fun. Added several new color options for the skin. Per user request, I also added a custom background capability to the Quartz home screen. This option is experimental at this point but I'm liking it so far. Let me know what you think.

Settings>Skin settings>Homepage>Enable custom background for homepage

Note: Background art must enabled to access this option and this image is affected by the 'Background Art Visibility' setting.

Okay guys, I've been through this code from stem to stern fixing every bug and aesthetic incongruity I could find. Should be ready for prime-time. Whether you're a devoted fan of Quartz, or just curious about what this skin has to offer, I hope you will give it a try. Let me know how it goes. It's lonely in here. Lol
