New theme in Screensleeves
Welcome to the new 'Ambience' theme.
It goes against the idea of a screensaver a little to have a static coloured background (I've been toying with the idea of adding a little 'Ken Burns' to the background, but this would have little benefit if the album cover is fairly homogenous in colour.)
But there is a fade to black and repositioning of the album cover and details every 30 seconds, which existing users will be familiar with. And if you're listening to individual tracks rather than complete albums or audiobooks, then there's no problem as the coloured background will change significantly every few minutes. Plus as now, when the music stops you either get a black screen or random artwork (whichever you choose) so no problem there.
Above all, it just looks so cool. I'm so excited about it and love using it.
[Update] This theme is now available in Screensleeves Pro v5.1. You can download and use the Pro version without paying, just certain Pro features will be disabled before you obtain a key.
