Is there any news on themes for windows 7 yet? I dont mean the ones already installed, but custom ones? Has anyone even made a patch for the uxtheme.dll yet?

I know the themes are not compatible from Vista, any info ?

Better to wait for RTM before you start worrying about things like that...

Well, I'm sure themes could be made for the current Windows 7 builds, but there's no guarantee they'l work in the final build.

No effort is being made on a uxtheme patch for 6801 and 6956 because of the fact that the Official Beta is being released in around a week.

It's pointless at this time to bother with doing any Customization on Windows 7 with these builds as peoples interest wont be focused on doing it for older builds that they wont be using.
