If you do, Frank, count me among those who would be most grateful and would download and use immediately!

I'll be keeping my fingers crossed!

New Version Release :

Aluminium Kai 2 version 2.1.5 for Firefox version 2.0

Aluminium Kai 2 v 2.1.5

MAJOR Update**

Fixes for version 2.1.5


Update details:

1. New Statusbar background, that flexes with larger text and icons.

2. Checkbox.gif image added.

3. Sidebar Header now flexes correctly with larger text sizes.

4. MAJOR recoding of the entire tab coding seen in the browser area. The tabs will look just the same, but needed this as :

a.) AK2 was not going to version to Firefox 3 the way the tab code was.
b.) AK2 was incompatible with my new HiViz extension for the visually disabled*.
c.) Less importantly, the tab coding differences between AK2 and all my other ML themes, made working on AK2 harder than it needed to be.

This recode has been thoroughly bugtested, including with Tab Mix Plus. However, if you do spot something we missed then please report it on my website.

5. AK2 is no longer compatible with Firefox 1.5 versions.


***************

*In a number of updates recently, I have mentioned the Metal Lion HiViz extension. When testing with other themes is complete, it is my intention for it to be a standalone extension. For the time being, it is packaged with Metal Lion 300 (chosen by visually disabled users) as a known working theme, as is the default theme and can be found here : http://www.accessfirefox.com/Metal_Lion_HiViz_300.php and here : http://forum.addonsmirror.net/index.php ... ic=7139&hl

This is what AK2 now looks like with HiViz :

... but without HiViz, the appearance is as before. Except that I reckon that the tab changing is slightly faster now.

Frank, the link you provided just leads to the 2.1.6 version on AMO. Point 8 not available until reviewed?

( Been using Kai for several months straight now, almost forgot there's other themes out there.)

Yeah, that's right, Mud. Never know when my themes are going to be reviewed and then the update appears on Addons, so it's best just to post the update details now and show the Status at the bottom. Just keep checking the status on that post.

Don't intend to change much on AK2, as I think I've mentioned before, when you see the version go above 2 then I'm reasonably happy with the look. Very gentle theme, AK2. :)
