I just updated to 0.9 myself and was dismayed when I discovered foo_toast hasn't been ported yet
I'll work on the orange one when it gets updated.

Does look nice.  So far I don't think anything has been ported to 0.9 yet, aside from the stuff that was around during the beta testing as well.  Seems a lot of plugins have to have a lot of code rewritten, and in some cases redone entirely.  I need toaster, album art, track info panel & RMX before I can switch, so it hurts.
But nice looking toaster thingy.  Nice to see people still making skins for it, shame the plugin doesn't seem to be getting this much attention from the developer.

dBaines, that looks very nice and sleek. Possible you could give it an orange theme, so it matches my "Foobar, WindowBlinds, Wallpaper and ObjectDock".


Sure could. If you upload a screenie of your setup or tell me some hex values it would be even easier for me and would blend better with your current stuff.

I don't think foo_toaster ever gets ported. There has been no post from the author for a year at least.

Hopefully someone will take it upon themselves to port it, i doubt the original creator wont be worried if it still has his credits on it; but states it was updated for .9

I reverted back to 0.8, as much as I love 0.9, I just couldn't live without my components.

I think I read somewhere here in the forums, that he will release an updated version on March 26th?!!

Currently - the configuration panel for toaster is a modal window.  If you have this panel open you can't (well at least I can't) interact with foobar until I finish in the config.  This is what I'm asking to be changed.

i believe you are refering to prettypop, and not toaster.

Maybe. I'm not quite sure. Aren't both plugins designed for the same purpose?

It would seriously rock if this was ported to 0.9, though it would even be better if he released the source (can't anyone get it?  If I knew C++ or whatever, I would contribute) and someone picked up from where he left?  Or maybe if prettypopup were to be able to be customized as much as Toaster was.  I just miss the awesomeness of Toaster/Album Art Plugin/Track Info

I'd give a shot at porting it to 0.9 if the sources were available.

A decent programmer could probably write a similar plugin quite easily.  I don't know much about programming, but the most complicated part of toaster seems like it would be the art display & fading in/out.  I never much liked how toaster wouldn't allow wildcards for album images, like *.* or the ability to look one directory up or use any image the current songs directory.  Has anyone tried directly contacting the dev about getting it updated or obtaining the source?

What do we need to get this plugin?

-Source
-SDK

?

What's the actual process? Recompile the script using the headers from the SDK? Would we be required to rewrite any code?

Yes. All you need to change should be covered by the component tutorial though.

Lol, only today did I learn why its called 'Toaster', because it pops up!! 

I could really do with this, I have to keep Foobar minimised all the time to keep an ear on the track on the taskbar.

Is there anyway to keep an eye on threads you've posted in on these boards?

similar does not mean identical...
you can change colors, fonts, displayed text , cannot use overlay image.
you can "only show automatically  when ( foobar) minimised " ( very nice and not in toaster...)
