Polar Clock 3.0 Released !

Monday, July 16, 2007

If you still remember the beautiful Polar Clock, well just so you know, since then, there have been many improvement going on ;)

And now, we have it, the new Polar Clock 3.0 is Released from Gabriel Bucknall!

The core logic itself was a total remake, porting it to ActionScript 3.0 which is more optimized ;)

So without further ado, here are the New Features :

  • Language Selection (28 languages so far)
  • Text alignment (outside, centre or inside of arc)
  • Font size 12 - 30pt
  • Flipping of text when it’s in the lower half of the arc (to stop it being upside down)
  • Guidelines behind arcs
  • 24/12 hour clock modes
  • Arc properties (thickness, padding, radius )
  • A spacer Arc for padding between Date and Time ( movable to be between any arc)
  • Continuous/Stepped motion (continuous was requested a lot, so that you can see a minute slowly stretching each second to become the next minute etc).
  • Ordering of the arcs. You can put the arcs in any order that you want.
  • Colours: Luminance, change the lightness of the arcs
  • Colours: Saturation, change the strength of the colour
  • Colours: Hue offset, change the hue of the arcs to between 0º and 360º.

This is a very great improvement for Polar Clock :D Kudos to Gabriel Bucknall for such a marvelous job ^^
