    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!
