New features and changes[edit | edit source]

Aero[edit | edit source]

The Aero theme when DWM is initialized has received a few minor uplifts. The caption buttons on the top-right are slightly lighter when the cursor isn't hovering over them. A transitioning effect is also utilized if moving your cursor on top of the buttons, and the glowing effect now mostly resembles that of RTM. Those changes will be committed to the main (winmain) branch on early September 2005, and will be featured on build 5231.

Updated Windows games[edit | edit source]

As of 2024, it is the earliest build to feature the new and remade games that will be featured on build 5219. These games were developed by Oberon Media and published by Microsoft Corporation.
