Seven Transformation Pack 5.1
Seven Transformation Pack Publisher's Description
Keynotes Featured Windows Vista enhancements
The wait is over. Now Windows Vista users can enjoy the Sevenization equally to Windows XP users. This version covers more updates in system files. You can customize Shell UI elements like file transfer and Start Menu logoff buttons, Startup animation and tray icons to match with Windows 7. It provides support for modified visual styles with giannisgx89's famous Windows 7 visual style pre-installed. It's time to go fooling your friends around with this customized Windows Vista that can be perceived as Windows 7. If you think there's somewhere I can do more with system files modification, tell me so I can prepare it for ya. I don't want to mess with minor character icons though :D
x64 system files modification
Another wait is over. Now your Windows XP x64 Edition (aka 2003 in XP shell) and Windows Vista x64 Edition can fully support system files modification. Before I explain how hard to make x64 system files support, let me tell you that applications in this version supports x64 now and you can skip this long paragraph. Since Windows XP x64 Edition doesn't have sysnative folder for x86 application, I have to find workaround solutions that can work with both OS and I found subst command-line that redirection doesn't affact. However, reshacker-like application for x64 is required and free so I picked Resourcer though it needs .NET Framework 2.0 and XP x64 doesnt have it coming by default in some case but I have no choice but to bet in Resourcer and modify its command-line code to work with resources I have. I sent the portion of my little nasty code as I want to keep changes minimum to the author of Resourcer and hope he will be OK with GPL license. Maybe?
Yet another very very long wait is over :D. This feature has been requested for since earlier versions of Vista Transformation Pack (Maybe even Longhorn Transformation Pack). As you can see that there will be always significant changes in program UI each time I release, making translation file will surely be some kind of troublesome job to track for changes and fix it. Since Seven Transformation Pack, it appears to has lesser changes in program UI. This version shall be concluded as stable for program UI and functions so I decided to start translation support in this version. You can contribute the localization support by posting your modified vilang.sif in community so people can host a mirror with localized file you provided.
Major updates in 3rd-party applications
I don't know if this should really be called for another wait is over and I'm starting to feel tired talking like this. There're 3 applications that got updated in this release which are ViStart, TrueTransparency and ViGlance. For ViStart, it's more like rewriting than updating so not much of features updates in this release but dramatic improvement in performance and stability. It may contain some new bugs with winkey and new keyboard for now but please bear with it for now since that's all I can do with my caliber. For TrueTransparency, it's surprisingly more stable in this version so I decided to unmark this application from unsafe list as I missed features of Aeroshake and Aerosnap. This version also come with long-anticipated feature "blur" supported so you'd better update for sure. For ViGlance, it has some bugs fixed like incompatibilities with new ViStart 7 and saving pinning items.
Well, that's all for 4.0 release in brief. Though previous version is called perfection but this version is something beyond the perfection. Have you seen any pack that does system files modification for both XP/Vista and x86/x64? No, right? So this is an innovation based on perfection. Ahhh, seems like I'm getting little cocky from finishing this challenging task. Let's just download and enjoy the release now :P.
