Two new APIs have been introduced to make the OS run smoother and faster. "LF" for basic LimeFyre functions and "Interface" (by the lovely awsumben13) to handle buttons, menus, and animations.

Lots (and by lots I mean most) of the work on LF3 is still waiting to be done, and with two side projects (non CC related) and a full schedule this week, I don't see much LF coming out this week.

However, if there are features you'd like to see, please let me know.

Basically the whole OS has gone through a UI overhaul since the last screenshots, so more screenies up when available.

CURRENTLY PLANNED FEATURES:
  • Multitasking
  • New and improved desktop and UIs
  • Custom OS programs like CodePad and Files
  • Downloadable Developer Help
  • Surface API usage
  • NFT icons (more detailed buttons and icons)

I've not done much work on this recently, because I've been using Love2D to try to make some games. I really don't have much motivation to do this anymore, to be honest.

I've got some other CC ideas in mind. So sit tight. :)

22 days later I've got some work to do on this. I'm still going to put off LimeFyre 3 but I do have some stuff I'd like to do on this. If you have any suggestions, please let me know!

I'm back again with another review.

Pros:
  • The new UI looks great in my opinion
  • The startup option finally works (yay)
  • The UI is less confusing
  • Password encryption
Cons:
  • The first huge hiccup, all the apps are 404 - not found upon first boot.
  • Access to system files is never a good thing, security wise.
Suggestions:
  • Add a desktop for LF3.
  • Make automatic updates optional instead of just manual updates.
  • Animations?
  • Stop access to system folders and files. You'll regret it eventually
Other than that, there's not much else to say, huge improvements. I'm happy with this.

Thank you for your review! I will definitely take it into consideration when I work on LF3.
