So how's everyone doing?
*looks around slowly*

Okay.  I know I haven't been keeping up with my themes.  I apologize for that, and I should have given you guys an update, but I actually wanted to come back with a bang.  But no bang here, sorry.  Ever since reformatting my PC and having school and client work to keep me busy on the weekends, I just haven't had the time.  There is also an alpha transparency bug in WSB that wastes a lot of my time, and I know people suggest me to use different programs to work around that but I honestly do not want to learn a new program just to get around this.  I don't have the time...  Ave (WSB author) knows about this bug and is trying to see if he can get it fixed, but it seems to be a tough one.  This alpha transparency bug is why a lot of transparent gradient graphics are jaggy and banded rather than smooth.  You will notice this in my Vista themes.  I tried to avoid it in my Windows 7 themes.

Here's a common question I received:

Q:  When is clsRound Windows 7 coming out?
A:  I honestly have no clue.  I suppose whenever/if ever the bug is fixed to where I can get right in and port without having to work around the transparency bug.  That is a major time killer, and I don't have all the time in the world anymore now that I have work and school.

Now I have a question for you...
How do I send my Windows 7 theme to the Windows 7 section?  Can I do that myself or do I have to report this?  And does this report have to be done by the community also?

Thanks for reading,

P.S.  Lots of EXCELLENT new themes are out now. :D  That's awesome.  Hooray for Windows 7.

the only method to deal with that issue, is for users to use this prog. [link]
it's pretty much the only option as of right now. I'm doing alright, I guess what about you KJ?

greay to see you back, agree that there came out other great themes, though i allways went back to CL_Sharp after some time, since its just the perfekt compromise between usability and style

Really like your theme, however: just like with the original Aero theme, you're using shadows under the title text in the windows, wich doesn't look good.

Have you thought maybe redesigning it?
