As some of you probably already know, they did some funky stuff with the buttons in FF14, which kinda broke Stratiform's button styles.
Therefore, for the sake of compatibility we need to come up with a new version. It won't be backwards compatible, and it probably won't look anything like the current Stratiform.
Soapy, being the innovative hygiene product that he is, has completely redone the UI. It now basically looks like Colorlicious, but with more options. In other words, it is very Metro.
I think the new layout itself is pretty good, but I've never been amazingly fond of Metro. Just doesn't sit right with me for whatever reason.
So I'm asking what style of UI you guys would prefer; Metro, or something with a bit more detail (light gloss, slight rounding of edges, soft shadows, etc.)?
Our aim is to have this version available before the 5th of June (when FF14 goes beta). We have not yet discussed whether this will be v2.2 or v3.0.
