Press Release Summary: SkinCrafter allows developers to create easily skinnable

Press Release Body: DMSoft Technologies announces the addition of a new and useful
feature to its popular SkinCrafter 3.0 program that makes jagged edges smoother in
custom-made Windows skins to create more beautifully rendered frames and windows.
This program is compatible with Win98/ME/NT/2K/2003/XP/Vista and is a mature,
stable, and comprehensive GUI design software solution that allows designers to
create custom skins for their new or legacy Windows based applications.

With its exclusive skin maker library, implemented as a standard Windows ActiveX
control, SkinCrafter allows designers to design unique styles using creative special
effects for fully interactive GUI development and more. SkinCrafter is compatible
with a large range of development languages, tools, and frameworks including Visual
Basic, Visual C++, Delphi, Borland C++ Builder, Microsoft DotNet, and the Win32 SDK.

The smoother edges are made possible through DMSoft Technologies' per-pixel-alpha
frames support. Through this per-pixel-alpha blending feature, semitransparent skins
will function properly under Windows 2000 and later. No code change is required,
only a skin replacement. This and other outstanding and useful features are now
available through the newest version of SkinCrafter 3.0

Other useful features available through SkinCrafter 3.0 include:
. True support of Right-To-Left Layout
. Hue\\Saturation\\Lightness\\Opacity implemented in SkinCrafter interface methods:
BeginCustomHSL, BeginHSL, ModifyHSL, EndHSL
. Added custom skin-defined scrollbars sizes support
. Import of .msstyles skins
The very huge amount of skins is now accessible to SkinCrafter users. Designers may
find .msstyles they like and with a simple option import them to SkinBuilder and
then convert to .skf format.
