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


Among Windows 7's features, the taskbar overhaul is probably the feature in Microsoft's upcoming OS that has aroused the most interest.

You've seen all those videos of the new Windows 7 Beta taskbar and you can't help but wish that the new "Superbar" was available in your copy of Vista and XP?

Well, you won't have to wait for Windows 7 anymore - Winstep Xtreme 8.11 has just been released, and brings with it the most interesting and useful features of the new Windows 7 taskbar into the XP and Vista world:


You can download the new Winstep Xtreme 8.11 version from HERE.

Highlights in this release:

Interactive, grouped window thumbnails that appear when you mouse over a taskbar button. Taskbar window thumbnails are clickable, allowing you to open, close, or switch between windows right from the thumbnails. With your taskbar set to 'group similar windows', window thumbnails of the same application appear side by side.

Window 'peek' function, which displays the actual, full size, window (even when minimized) of the thumbnail you are hovering over, while all other windows are temporarily hidden.

Optional Windows 7 taskbar style using large icons with no labels.

Taskbar buttons can now be reorganized by left clicking and dragging (pressing SHIFT is no longer required).

Start Button can be quickly toggled to open the main NextSTART menu or the Windows Start Menu.

Many new context menu options to control the most common Taskbar, Startbar and Quick Launch Area settings.

Document thumbnails on menu mouse over - indispensable to quickly identify image, document and video files when browsing folders with NextSTART menus.

Theme menus now display thumbnails of the actual themes.

Dock settings can be accessed through the context menu of any dock item - which means the NeXuS control icon is now optional.

Creation and manipulation of sub-docks is now much more intuitive via handy context menu options. Every dock item has a context menu option to create a new, empty, sub-dock and existing sub-docks can be detached, duplicated and deleted via the context menu of the parent item.

Shelf tabs can now be reorganized directly by left-clicking on a tab and dragging.

The Capture Desktop internal command now adds screenshots to the Recent Documents list.

New 'Show Desktop' internal command (equivalent to WIN+D).

Fixed some miscellaneous issues.

... and much, much more!

There are many other additions and fixes in the Winstep Xtreme 8.11 release. You can see a complete list of changes to the WorkShelf and NeXuS components HERE and to the NextSTART component HERE.
