Stardock has released the v1.1 update of Start8 today.  Start8 brings back your Windows 8 start menu and adds other features such as booting straight to the desktop, disabling desktop hotspots, and more.  This update brings several improvements and new features.


Highlights of v1.1:

  • Added drag & drop including rearranging items in the all programs tree.
  • Added rename support in the tree
  • Added feature : Folders pinned to the startmenu allow you to view the first X items as a jumplist
  • Added opening Winkey+X menu option instead of start menu
  • Added feature : Custom places locations. Add a Dropbox location for example.
  • Additional language support

This update is free to current users, and can be downloaded from your account.  The free trial and more info can be found at the Start8 website.

Nice, I'm a fan of Start8 but I just started using the Start Screen and I'm loving it. :)
