-Fixed settings tabs alignment that broke a few updates prior.
-Lots of other minor changes I cannot remember.

18/04/2010:

-Fixed game title header to use 32px icons correctly.
-Fixed password input on login dialog, no longer invisible.
-Reorganized the "Last Message received at X"/"X is typing a message" status to be inside the chat history.

-Fixed the resizer on the bottom right of main client window, now appears correctly aligned.
-Applied styling to the game section headers to seperate them better.
-Enlarged the clickable area for the "<x> Online section", now easier to click to open friends list.
-Dropped the font size of friends' names by 2pts within the friends list.
-Tweaked outer glows on various things, for performance and appearance.
-Redesigned the checkboxes to match the radio buttons.
-Remade the recent achievement border to be gold like in original version.

-Remade the group chat to better align to the theme.
-Fixed the "Close" button on the downloads page not being an icon.

-Other tweaks I don't remember

29/03/2010:
-Added Group Chat skin.
-Lowered the brightness of the background stripes by 50%, much more subtle.
-Re-added the progress throbber.
-Fixed progress bars within a "page" not appearing.
-Replaced the odd rounded friends-list hover gradient with a more fitting rectangle on-hover.
-Tooltips have been improved, the headings are larger with a separator below.
-Menus have been altered, should be easier to distinguish between hovered items and regular, as well as disabled.

23/03/2010:
-Resized "X Items Downloading" to prevent cut-off on XP systems without segoe UI.
-Changed the red font color for game details view
-Realigned the scrollbar grip image to be properly vertical-centered.
-Inactive tab font size is now slightly larger to aid readability.
-Highlight colors have been fixed in friends chat (When you highlight text).
-Fixed "PLAY" and "DETAILS" button on grid-view to match rest of skin, somewhat.
-Changed own text color in chats to be a darker gray to easily distinguish between friends comments and your own.

21/03/2010:
-Fixed the background images to repeat much further, rather then fade out.

_________________________________________________


A note to other skin builders:
I encourage you to view how my skin functions (However, be warned, it's EXTREMELY messy, I haven't the time to clean it up, a lot of the variables are misnamed). Improve upon it, alter it, release it, but GIVE CREDIT WHERE CREDIT IS DUE. If you only change the font, don't claim the whole skin as your own, obviously I deserve the major credit. This skin has taken a LONG time and a lot of hard work to complete, be fair to me and credit.

BUGS:
Major:

Minor:
-Scrollbar alignment is different by a few pixels in different windows.

Gave you some rep for that, man. Looks ridiculously good.

I hope you are showered with the good fortune required for the updates to continue.

You can use FSCapture to screenshot the overlay.

You seem to have overlooked the group chat. It's not yet skinned. Not a big deal, as I don't use it too much, but it'd be nice.

While not as obvious as the default skin, your friends list pops up when you hit the line where it says how many of them are online.

I highly doubt it, I honestly hated the V1 Skin.

Thank you! I'll take a screenshot of the full overlay when I get home from work.

I completely missed it :S I literally never have used group chat, so it was easy not to think about, I'll skin it over the next couple of days and post it up.

I have merged the functions of the "VIEW FRIENDS" and "<X> Online", click on it

, I thought it was rather silly to split up the functions into two seperate labels, they should be one, so I did so, and yeah it may not be as obvious, mainly because everybody is now used to "VIEW FRIENDS", it is far more petite and useful.

How did you manage to do that? I installed this skin and no feature of this sort appeared.

EDIT: NVM, found it. It's a great skin btw.

Wow, this is great! Valve should rebase to your design. I am definitely bookmarking this thread for future updates.
