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 8.9 version from HERE.


Highlights in this release:

    Added a brand new Winstep Xtreme component, the Winstep Start Menu Organizer, to clean and organize your Windows Start Menu.
    Enhanced the icon reflection effect so icon reflections are no longer 'attached' to the icons.
    New Zoom, Bounce, Afterglow, Rock and Swing effects in docks and shelves.
    New 'Fluid Reflection' effect that animates reflections in real time so that icons appear to be reflected over a liquid surface.
    New 'fluid surface' effect that distorts dock backgrounds in real time to make the grass in a grass dock background appear as if it's blowing in the wind, the water in a water background gently rocking back and forth, etc...
    New Troubleshoot dialog from where you can reset WorkShelf and NextSTART settings back to their installation defaults.
    Added 'Send to WorkShelf' option to Explorer's right click context menu.
    Desktop modules now remember their previous positions when you switch screen resolutions.
    Shelf icons are now 'lazy rendered' if a shelf is taking too long to open for the first time
    Dock and Shelf collapse animations are now much smoother.
    Menu and sub-dock opening animations are now much smoother.
    Improved the dock magnification algorithm for a much faster and smoother experience.
    Increased overal peformance.
    Backing up and Restoring WorkShelf and NextSTART settings is now much faster.
    Enhanced the thumbnails feature by adding support for MP4 movie previews.
    Added 'Keep Tile Aspect Ratio' and 'Adjust Icon Reflection to Tile' NeXuS skinning options.
    Tweaked the Dock Magnification algorithm so that the dock's zooming speed accelerates as the dock magnifies. This smooths the movement and minimizes expansion of the dock when the mouse pointer momentarily passes over it.
    NextSTART menus displaying special folders like 'My Programs', 'Favorites', etc, no longer display the shortcut arrow on the icons.
    Fixed many miscellaneous issues.
    ... and much, much more!
There are many other additions and fixes in the Winstep Xtreme 8.9 release. You can see a complete list of changes to the WorkShelf and NeXuS components HERE and to the NextSTART component HERE.
