* inactive frame blur/color balances are not altered by theme opacity settings when user set them manually
* blur deviation settings is applied everytime colorization is changed (so no DWM restart is needed now)
* custom theme resource can now be loaded globally from HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
* glass is disabled when running on a battery
--> HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\DWMisableGlassOnBattery (DWORD 0x0 / 0x1 = default)
* implemented glass reflection (aero stripes only)
--> HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\DWM:ColorizationGlassReflectionIntensity (DWORD 0x0 = disabled (default) / other values = enabled)
OP from bigmuscle on MSFN:
The software is free for your personal usage. However, it politely asks you to donate arbitrary amount of money to support the development as I spent really a lot of time on this. This is not mandatory, you can still use the software unlimitedly but you are not allowed to bypass the donation request by any available mean.
The free version does not support automatic downloading of DWM symbols from MS server. This is done as a bonus to the donators when any future Windows update breaks something, they can continue using glass effect without waiting for fixed version. However, everyone can still download the public symbols manually (or get them from a friend etc.) and put them to <your Aero Glass folder>\symbols. Utility will then load them when required. Just, please don't share the symbols here as they are copyrighted by Microsoft Corporation.
Download and all information are available on its website: glass8.berlios.de
INFORMATION: After donation, you won't receive any license code automatically. You must generate it manually on glass8.berlios.de/donate.html
Please, remember that this software is done in my free time and it is not done for any profit - the donation totally depends on you and you won't get the full service as in the case of regular paid software. You donate to support the development and not to buy the full version of the software!
THIS IS NOT FOR WINDOWS 8.1!
