Pulmon Beta 5 has been released! I am pleased to announce that It is a major upgrade. It’s a must have. According to testers, this is the best version. You will be surprised to hear that we changed it and now looking very similar to Windows 8 Start Screen. This version contains many improvements, fixes, new widgets and more customization!

  • Calender is a new widget which shows name of month and date.
  • Pulmon Homepage is a simple widget for the quick access to new updates.
  • Google Search is a very cool and simple widget allows you to search the contents over the web.
  • Storage is a very nice widget allows you to see info about drives with a cool Progress Bar.
  • Improved Fullscreen Mode – Fullscreen mode is now very similar to Windows 8 fullscreen view.
  • Changed main window size.
  • Settings option has been changed and now with more options and details.
  • Every single tile has been changed.
  • Sizes are now similar of almost all tiles.
  • Improved the contents of each tile
  • Tiles color can be changed by Settings – Customize Themes. 8 options are given. You can see some of them in the given screenshot. This is the most delicious feature of this version.
  • The most awaited feature was of saving locations of the tiles. But now Pulmon has this feature!

Cool but got a few errors trying to open certain tiles and trying to move the power control tile resulted in rebooting my PC

It's because i never released mTiles Plus. I decided to not release it due to Paras wanting to do an app like this. He has done a very good job on this app!

I WILL be releasing mTiles Plus, as how I am in Fedora Linux for, well, a while. Over 700GB worth of Video files, I had to lose Windows due to bloat and such. Once I get a new external 2TB HDD i will go back to Windows. In the meanwhile, I will release the source to mTiles Plus, free for all, to use as they need.

Not too bad.
Still needs quite a bit of work on the graphical side in my opinion though, so I will stick to using Omnimo for now.
