0.3.0

Introduction
For the last two months, I've been working on a new shell for the TI-84 Plus CE/TI-83 Premium CE calculators, designed to be a Windows-like shell that has the many features I've seen requested for other shells in the past. The reason I'm just announcing it now, in this later stage of development, is because of the large number of announced but incomplete shells for the CE. I didn't want to get people's hopes up without being able to deliver. With that said, here's what VYSION can do so far, and what's planned.

Features
-full filesystem: cut and paste files of all types into folders, and create new folders
-program running: all program types can be run and do not break the shell (including protected TI-BASIC programs)
-convenience: pin your most used programs to the taskbar, or put them on the desktop
-customization: change VYSION's wallpaper, change the colors of the menus and taskbar, make the taskbar transparent or centered, and more

Planned features
-shell locking: turn off the calc, and prompt for a password upon restart, then return to the shell
-themes: easily change the whole appearance of the shell with a few clicks
-hooks: press a key combo to start the shell
-backup: backup your RAM from within the shell

Screenshots
No mockups here, just actual operation of the shell.

Conclusion
That's all for now, but please let me know what you think about the project, or any feature requests and feedback you have. If you'd like to contribute to the development process and be the first to test out new builds of the program, please join my Discord server here. Thanks for reading, and stay tuned for more updates.
First off, I've jut got to say that, as one of the beta tester, I have really grown to love Vysion. I love how it looks, the many customizable options, and, especially, the Windows-like interface. People need to try this out and I believe that they will love it, if they do. I am very excited for the public release of Vysion and can't wait to see it in the Cemetech archives. Excellent work so far, epsilon5, and good luck finishing Vysion! Smile Good Idea
Looks great!

I'll probably stick with Cesium, though. The backup RAM feature has saved my rear end on more than one occasion.

What if this shell had backup features too?
Awesome! I'm thrilled to see this finally announced! I think the biggest draws for me would be if Vysion had
1) Backup features
2) A way to pin programs for quick access. (Looks like your program is already designed for this though!)
3) xlibce Laughing

I'd probably make the switch.
Okay. So to add to the upcoming feature list:
1. backup features

Pinning programs has already been implemented through the taskbar and desktop, so I don't need to do this. Xlibce isn't something I want to get into right away, and I don't have the technical background to pull it off well now.

I'm looking forward to it. I'm very excited to see all of the features implemented and working! Very Happy
