Introducing Overview for Windows XP. With Overview you can bring all of that skinning goodness to your Alt-Tab switcher. Featuring full alpha-blended transparency, Windows Vista-like thumbnail previews and Mac OS X application icons.

Features

* Full alpha-blended transparency, skinning support. See the .psd template supplied for skinning instructions.
* Windows Vista window thumbnail previews or Mac OS X application icons in switcher
* Can use Alt-Tab as the hotkey
* Open window list in the system tray menu
* Exclude any window or program you don’t want Overview to see (a few programs that have known issues have already been included in the exclusion list)
* 2 themes included with more to come soon
* Replace application icons with custom ones by placing the custom icon in the Images folder and naming it the same as the application

ie: To change the default Explorer icon with a custom one, drop the custom image into the Images folder and rename it Explorer.exe. The image name should match the process name as shown in the Task Manager.

Changelog

Version 0.5.0.8 - December 27, 2007 10:35PM Eastern Australian Time

* Plugged a bunch of memory leaks which should keep Overview’s memory usage steady
* Shaved an extra 10k from the memory usage
* Added non-alpha blended switch (requested by ultimatsz)
It’s not the most beautiful thing in the world but it should help those with lower end computers.
* Fixed the bugs reported earlier regarding the About box
* Added Yahoo! Widgets and RocketDock to the pre-configured exclusion list
