An integrated workspace environment, Winstep Xtreme is a powerful suite of applications that merge incredible usability and performance with breathtaking eye candy.


You can download the new Winstep Xtreme 8.5 version from HERE.


Highlights in this release:

    New optional and user configurable icon reflection effect on docks and shelves.
    Restored the weather feed provided by the Weather Channel.
    New customizable backgrounds for the in-shelf/dock CPU, Net and RAM meters.
    New Dock Manager to quickly manage and locate all your docks.
    Added a new 'NeXuS Common Preferences' tab to WorkShelf Preferences for settings common to both the docks and the Shelf.
    Added ability to group documents from the same program into a single task icon, bringing WorkShelf's task management abilities up to par with NextSTART.
    Menus displaying grouped tasks now highlight tasks that were 'flashed' in the mean time (e.g. Messenger windows).
    Added 'Task Flashing' support to the Tasks shelf.
    Added many other task management improvements.
    Improved the dock magnification algorithm for a much faster and smoother experience.
    Added a 'Magnification Smoothness' setting to control how smoothly docks zoom in and out.
    Added individual settings to optimize WorkShelf for either performance or memory usage.
    Enhanced the thumbnails feature by adding support for Flash movies previews.
    Added visual feedback when you click on a dock icon.
    Improved the preview of non-native NeXuS themes in the Dock Style Editor.
    Added support for dock separator bitmaps in native and non-native NeXuS themes.
    Dock tile and overlay Endcaps now have their own settings for non-strechable bitmap areas.
    Fixed many miscellaneous issues.
    ... and much, much more!
There are many other additions and fixes in the Winstep Xtreme 8.5 release. You can see a complete list of changes to the WorkShelf and NeXuS components HERE and to the NextSTART component HERE.
