Isn't opensource beautiful?
After spending some time again with my previous project XboxMediaCenter I was very impressed by the progress these guys are making. Their skin engine includes very nice animation effects like fading, sliding, rotations etc.
Since XBoxMediaCenter is also an opensource project, we started porting their animation effects to MediaPortal. The first results are already in SVN but it will be extended to full support in the upcoming days.
I want to thank all XBMC guys for their work and letting us borrow their code!
All new animations tags are described in the wiki
