    BUGS
    The skin surely contains bugs/design-flaws and I encourage you to report all bugs you encounter in this thread!

    • One major issue I could not resolve: when displaying playlists, the backgrounds of the items in the playlist are missing. Please help me!
    • Sometimes in facadeview with small and large icons right upper title could be cut at the bottom (see this post thanks to Els). This issue does not occur in MP 1.1.0 beta.

    Thanks!

    I've just uploaded some other screenshots.

    I will soon release the first version of the skin...
    Tomorrow i'm going to work all day long, so i'm planning to upload the skin on sunday.

    I've completed the development of the main plugins.

    I plan to soon support plugins like:

    - Showtimes
    - Onlinevideos
    - StreamRadio

    But i've not started the development of these plugins yet!

    Thanks to everybody!
