****************************


2.6 brings:

* Included a skinned version of LuaCalendar
*Added a new skin showing 5 of the current popular Instagram images from the Webstagram website.
* Fixed Gallery Filename display.
*Updated TopProcess to reflect changes in 2.2.1 - thanks justauser.
*The usual tweaks & fixes I can't remember!

CPU & GPU temperatures are captured by Speedfan which needs to be running in the background. [link]

Might be plugin related, so make sure Rainmeter is up to date.  Other than that, have a read at the Rainmeter forum.

They are simple enough to add, the only real issue there is the amount of screen they would take up. I'll have a look at adding them in the next version.

SOLVED LAN IP: changed in Network.ini under [MeasureLAN] from: "SysInfoData=0" to"SysInfoData=1", now shows WiFi IP correctly (why was it "0"?)

Right clicking the skin and selecting edit covers this one:

";NetIntf should be 0, but if your motherboard has 2 NICs or you are using wifi on a laptop you may need to change to 1 or even 2."

Glad you sorted it.

Great skin, THANKS! But... Network shows correct external WAN IP but ALWAYS INCORRECT WiFi LAN IP, whatever I do it is always: 127.0.0.1 Other Win 7 tools show correctly 192.168.0.xxx (I have HP laptop with Broadcom 4313GN WiFi adapter, but this does not really matter).
