Recently I’ve had a little more time than usual with aflobby. Of note are a slew of bug fixes and glest support.
I’ve corrected numerous aesthetic issues, including icons that stretch tabs, and windows that are still undecorated such as the warning window. The bundled Substance has been updated to 4.1 stable, and I’ve made other GUI tweaks to make minor improvements.
