Just got this mail from Ian from Stardock:

Hi Arne,
Just dropping a note to let you know that we've finally released PocketBlinds 1.0!

Yes, I know what you're thinking. "Didn't this guy announce this last year, and then it never came out?" Well, we had speed issues, and some plug-in problems. The speed issues have been solved (PocketBlinds now natively extends the Windows CE GWES), and the plug-in issues have been solved too. PocketBlinds is also now compatible with applications like WIS Bar.

Woohoo!!! Finally! :-) I've already previewed PocketBlinds summer last year on Microsoft's PocketPC.com and I'm happy that it is finally released. No other skinning tool goes so deep into the OS to change more than the Task bar only but the complete GUI incl. buttons!

PocketBlinds 1.0 is available for free from Stardock's PocketBlinds site and supports Pocket PC 2002 as well as Pocket PC 2002. It also works on Phone Edition; however specific Phone Edition functionalities aren't included right now:

Please note though that there are issues on the SmartPhone platform (because PB wasn't designed for it). If there is enough interest I'll add compatibility for it though. PocketBlinds will work on both 2000 and 2002 devices. The only bit missing right now for 2002 is notification icon support. However, if users want to use PB, but do not want their notification icon obscured, they can easily disable the Nav Bar skinning for now.

Cheers ~ Arne
