Start8 1.09 Beta released

Start8 brings the “Start” menu back to Windows 8. The Windows 8 Consumer Preview is available and has taken the Windows interface to a whole new level. Unfortunately, the preview did not come with a desktop feature that the world makes use of billions times a day, the “Start” menu.

So what’s new in this build?

– Folders pinned to the Start Menu allow you to view the first X items as a jumplist
– Custom places locations.(Add a dropbox location for example)
– Improved “Go straight to desktop” on login feature
– UI supports translation via lng files. See \lang\en.lng file for info
