CrystalClear Interface 2.7
is a major release that introduces new graphics options for changing menubar styles, as well as incorporating the Black Gloss button theme from Crystal Black
. CrystalClear Interface 2.7 is nearly identical to version 2.6, but it extends theming support to include Mac OS X 10.7 ("Lion") — specifically, version 10.7.3. New features:
- Crystal Black Theme. CCI has a new button theme — "Black Gloss" — like the one in Crystal Black
- Menubar options. Users can mix and match among eight different menubar styles, to complement their chosen button theme, desktop picture, and window theme.
- Quick theme switching. A new "Customize A Base Theme" panel provides an interface for selecting all components of your CrystalClear Interface at one time. Here you can set your choices for button theme, menubar style, windows preset theme, and crystal desktop picture. Of course, you can change any of these individual settings later using the CCI global menu and the CCI Preferences panel.
- Application graphics. CCI seamlessly swaps custom application graphics that match the chosen button theme. For example, if you switch to Black Gloss buttons, the custom graphics for Apple and Third-Party apps remove the previous theme's graphics and installs those for Black Gloss
- New window frames. To take advantage of the new menubar and button theme options, CCI adds two new window frame styles — "Black Gloss" and "Black Gradient."
- New preset themes. You now have two more preset themes — "Black Gloss" and "Smooth Black" — to take advantage of the new window styles.
- Colored lights. Two of the button themes — "Black Gloss" and "Glossy" — now have a set of three-color "stoplight" buttons for the Close, Minimize, and Zoom functions on window titlebars. This feature has been frequently requested in the past, and users can now use the colored buttons by selecting the "Blue" appearance theme in System Preferences -> Appearance.
- More menu extras. This version adds 8 more white menubar icon variants for third-party apps, which now total 29.
- More custom app mods. To extend its theming wizardry, CCI has added custom graphics and other modifications for 12 more applications.
