Nimi Visuals 10.1 Released: 100+ New Features and Effec

Thought I would share this-

Its an eye candy program for Windows XP, Vista and 7 users. It allows you to add various effects like glow, transparency, etc to Windows, Taskbar, Startmenu, etc.

  • Desktop scripting - which allow User to turn their desktops into interactive HTML based field through scripts using JavaScript and Nimi Bastet scripting frontend
  • Repositories support - which allows to install scripts, plug-ins and even 3rd part customization software. Moreover it make it easier to keep it updated
  • Support for 3rd part customization software - both installing and running directly from Nimi Visuals
  • Synergy between both cores - classic and mirage can swap their functions for better performance
  • New effect types - on window creation and destroy, and on window state change
  • New graphics engine - allowing advanced graphics post processing, short named "nimioru", as well as handling tasks as retrieving window thumbnails(now supporting window themes for DWM capable systems)
  • Multi-monitor support for some effects - effects like edge snap, maximize have now better compatibility with multi-monitor workspaces
  • Suspend switch in menu - allowing to temporary suspend effects
  • New effect management - effects are grouped into categories
  • Quick search - now You can find effects by their name or description
  • Faster load time and better performance - thanks to core optimizations and effects architecture as well as detection methods
And new effects are:
  • window opaque on mouse over - only window in which area is mouse hovering is opaque, rest is transparent
  • invisible desktop - desktop is only opaque when focused
  • minimize non-active windows - which minimize windows that aren't focused
  • fluid windows - make windows behave like being made from fluid
  • smooth wallpaper - smooths wallpaper
  • fluid wallpaper - make wallpaper look like being made from fluid
  • taskbar reflection - which casts desktop reflection on the screen
  • transparent menu popups - which turns menu popup list transparent
  • window edge warp - which warps window to opposite screen side when moved outside it's edge
  • aurora fade - which fades window in aurora alike lights on their creation and destroy
And few of the updated ones:
  • Jelly windows - rewritten, optimized alghoritm, few times faster and uses less resources
  • Contrastful windows - rewritten, now it's smooth and desaturate all capable windows, without redraw issues
  • Creation fade - now without lag, and support both on creation, destroy, minimize fading
  • Showcase - optimized, faster as it make use of newest graphics engine
  • Picture board, and highlight - optimized, few times faster than previously as adapted to new graphics engine

not sure for everyone else, but using windows 7, the jelly windows and fluid windows is not very smooth. Very jumpy.

Have you thought of trying WPF to do some of the effects?
