    Awesome. If 1.5 makes the same amount of "changes for the better" as 1.4 was for 1.3, you should have the main program "ready-for-primetime" as they say (it will just be the plugins that are beta). I can't wait to get some sample source so I can start comming up with 1-million requests for the plugin-archetecture .

    BTW: Awesome move putting Exit/Shutdown/Hibernate in the button-config. For some reason I always click Home or Apps before remembering that Exit is on the Tools window. Now it's on all 3 LOL. I'll remove it from the other 2 once I am done needing to exit all the time in order to tweak settings and skins (should be about 2 months after you are done with 2.0 and have no 2.1 betas yet ). Anyway, I say put as many possible commands in to buttonactions.xml as you can possibly think of. And make more of the buttons in to the xml too so that we can custom configure it all (phone, speech, gamma, FF, REW, eye, and all volume buttons are all things that some people need and others don't).

    PS: It would eventually be nice to be able to configure all of that from within some advanced settings mode in CF, rather than having to edit XML files in a seperate app and with CF closed. I know, I know... the requests never stop coming do they? I just love "feature creep". I have been meaning to do a lot of this in SKINbedder myself, but I have to focus on getting a new skin method for v3.0 done first, so I do realize "configuration UI" does have to come later (once the configuration stops changing LOL).

    I was thinking about this and being able to customize Start, Resume, and Exit scripts is definatly cool, however, when CF is set to run as the shell, I still think it should just automatically run everything in the registry under RunOnce and Run (plus maybe everything in the All Users StartUp folder).

    Here a new but somewhat related request... When you exit CF it auto-runs explorer, but that just brings up an explorer window, not the explorer shell. Anyway to fix that?

    It would be really cool if I could just run an explorer SHELL embeded in CF .
