Classic Shell 4.0's public beta is now available. Completely free, no license key, registration, or activation hassles, nothing. Get it here: http://classicshell.net/ And good news, Classic Shell reached 8 million downloads.
What's new in 4.0?

- a new turn off monitor command
- search box for settings dialog and nested settings. Dependent settings are offset from their parent
- Country flags in the Languages tab
- Computer item can now show a list of drives as a menu without expanding them further
- Secondary Tiles for Modern apps show the personalized tile name and can be launched from the menu as well
- "Install Updates and Shutdown/Restart" functionality like the original Start Menu
- Aero Glass rendering if the MSFN member BigMuscle's AeroGlass for Windows 8 mod is installed
- Enhanced keyboard shortcuts like Home/End/Page Up/Page Down in addition to F2, Del, Alt+Enter etc working everywhere
- Shift+Win uses a hotkey instead of a keyboard hook so it will give less problems and work with elevated programs
- The icons and data are saved to a cache on disk at %APPDATA%\ClassicShell, so the menu should stay responsive all the time.
- Right-click for the Win+X menu works even when all corners are disabled
- New setting for the icon size for the classic button
- Windows 7 treeview style can show folders first
- Classic IE9 renamed to Classic IE as it has enhancements for IE9 and up
