Skulpture gets polished progress bar

The latest 0.1.9 snapshot improves the appearance of ProgressBar widgets. Here is a list of changes:

  • the floating gradient looks cleaner
  • animation speed and chunk size do no longer depend on widget size
  • text is rendered with the correct foreground colors, ensuring it is readable with all color schemes
  • rendering should be faster, because it no longer uses radial gradients
  • the vertical progress bar text rendering has been fixed

Additionally, the progress bar code has been heavily refactored to make it easy to add caching and new features in the future. Due to these changes there are some regressions that should not remain unmentioned:

  • the busy indicator does currently not float towards the center, but floats to the left
  • small progress bars do no longer have the circled look

As always, testing and feedback is appreciated. Download link:

Skulpture gets new check box artwork

The latest 0.1.9 snapshot adds new artwork for CheckBox and RadioButton widgets. The new design fixes minor inconsistencies between the two and adapts better to different sizes. The marks are cleaner and rendered with the correct foreground colors, making them better readable on dark color schemes. I would like to hear your opinion, so please try the snapshot and give feedback.
