As you can see, I’ve updated a number of things, not the least of which was the fact that I was using a slider for the hue to the right in the old version. The new one uses an interface of my own because the slider wasn’t flexible enough for what I needed.

I also added functionality so that clicking on the color boxes selects all the text. I have a blog post on how to do that if you’re so inclined.

I’ve made some discoveries regarding creating Silverlight gadgets, but that is a post in and of itself. It’s coming.
