DesktopX 3.5 Officially Released

Article posted on 7/17/2008

The world's most powerful, easy to use desktop customization program gets a major update: DesktopX 3.5.

DesktopX is a program that lets users extend their Windows desktop to support true objects (as opposed to just icons).  These objects can be cosmetic in nature or using a plugin or some scripting a user can make a desktop object do virtually anything. These objects can then be combined together to make widgets or used to build an entirely new desktop.

DesktopX 3.5 has been in development for over a year. Getting DesktopX 3.5 to work seamlessly on Windows Vista was a significant challenge but worth it.

DesktopX 3.5 isn't just a Vista update, however. It allows users to export their creations as Windows sidebar gadgets! This is significant because by default, Sidebar gadgets tend to be limited in functionality. DesktopX objects, however, have no limitations, a user can make plugins in C++ or virtually any other language allowing Sidebar gadgets to be incredibly powerful.

DesktopX 3.5 also includes a completely revamped website along with a major overhaul of the DesktopX documentation.

If you've ever wanted to see what kinds of cool stuff you can do with your desktop, DesktopX is a great and easy way to do it whether you're a novice or an expert PC user.

DesktopX is available on its own or as part of Object Desktop.
