RE: Aero dialogs

I'd welcome it! I think it is very good, modernising the interface into the
OS look n' feel and all, nonetheless it's probably a little ostentatious to

A few suggestions:
-The update/commit progress dialog still has the little grey static control
background behind the listview and the speed/gauge statuses. Perhaps those
should be moved to the glass portion (and the listview placed directly on
the frame instead of the panel). Likewise for the log window - grey at the
left, top and right edges and glass at the bottom. I don't have a hard and
fast rule for what goes on glass and what stays on a panel though, any
-The okay/cancel buttons seem to be mis-aligned.
- I'm not sure about this myself, however when I created a few glass margins
I believe they allow the window to be dragged around the screen (try doing
that in Explorer, above the "address bar"); the Tortoise glass areas don't
seem to be able to allow dragging (perhaps that's disabled intentionally?)

Otherwise, great job with modernising the UI!

Subject: Aero dialogs


The nightly builds are up again, and the last one has some changes to
the dialogs on Vista and Win7 with Aero enabled.

Since I figured that not all of you would like the new look, there's an
option in the settings dialog to disable this.

But I'd like to hear from you guys about what you think of those dialogs
- are they good or bad?
