    For all you ObjectDock users, you might want to head over to Stardock's website and upgrade to Release Candidate 1.0, which was released today. WinCustomize also has a front-page article, which highlights the major changes. I installed it and have already noticed a couple of nice changes -- especially a fix for the issue that sometimes kept folder shortcuts from opening.

    Are the default icons still cheesy though?

    default icons unchanged afaik...

    but you can change the icons...

    I personally don't care much.. am glad the weather docklet is fixed though :D

    now the docklet shows me what the weather is like outside..

    Heh, I just think the default icons are evil. But it's definitely my favourite dock app. :)

    I've noticed a performance improvement on mine since I upgraded. It would get pretty jumpy sometimes, but so far it's much better now. Also, I haven't had to click on a folder shortcut more than once so far to get it to open, so it looks like that issue has been taken care of! :D

    Same here. I love the docklets for Yz :)
    Just wondering, what docklets are available for ObjectDock?

    Good thing is Yz will remain freeware forever unlike ObjectDock.

    I am not sure what drugs you are on but it might be time to stop for a while because ObjectDock has always been free. As far as I know it will remain that why.

    Only the beta stays free. If you've had any experience with Wincustomize software you'd know that it becomes adware with nag screens etc The whole idea of a release candidate is to get the public to fix bugs before releasing a nagged version. Must be really stoned if you didn't see that one coming :D

    Obviously you should ask before assuming... I have been a suscriber to ObjectDesktop and WinCustomize and Stardock Central for 3 years now. Several of Stardocks programs have been freeware even after version 1 has come out.

    Cursor XP 1.2
    Logon XP RC 6
    Pocket Blinds v1
    SmartException v1.00.002
    XPBench 1.03.024
    Stack'N Sac 1.0.009
    Elves Incorporated 1.0.001
    and so on
    Minor nag screen in only a few of them at best.

    Only 2 popular, useful ones are Cursor XP (nag screens) and Logon XP (Release candidate). We'll wait and see what happens with ObjectDock. Betcha I'm right. :)
