Due to popular demand, we have designed a skinless version of XBConnect(info). This version has a cleaned up interface and is targeted at those that have low to mid range PCs. XBC will now load much faster, use less resources, and will get along with desktop skinning programs.
We have also been getting geared up for the Xbox 360 launch. In anticipation of this, we have added some new networking code to XBC. We hope this will make the transition much easier when November comes around.
