Yes, the dimensions in those cd bitmaps are slightly off. And the reason for this oddity is quite plausible: I used a 500x500 pixel-cd-reference-png and completely neglected the proper width and height of the cd case. Additional thought was the fact that 500x500 pixel size is a very common cover dimension on the internet, which I totally wanted to keep in order to avoid cutting, resizing, let alone cropping of the downloaded cover bitmaps.

So let us make some corrections here. According to Wikipedia:

- CD's dimension is 120 mm
- CD jewel's dimension is 142x125 mm
- CD cover's dimension is 121x120 mm

How do you like it now?

P.S. Someone please confirm, that those dimensions are (on a standard 96dpi monitor) approximately correct. I work on a FullHD laptop and all skin components are smaller.

The booklet sits further to the left, as do the bits that hold it in place. Somewhat like this:

The upcoming version 2.3 of my skin is getting ready.

I am very happy to announce that I found a REPEAT A-B script on the forum made in the year 2007 (!) by Egor Petrov. THANK YOU! This feature will be part of the TRACK BOOKMARKS window. Another small change is the background color of inactive song in the Playlist Editor which is dark red now.

And I decided to use just CD jewel bitmap. I got problems while implementing both of them (jewel and sleeve) into the context menu and had to cut it short.

Stay tuned!
