Scientific calculator skins

Following the nice comments received about the new calculator’s functionality, and since no new bugs were reported, I had time to work a bit on the scientific calculator’s look. The new version adds two user selectable color themes: ‘Wooden’ and ‘Smoke’, the original theme is now called ‘Classic’.

The ‘Wooden’ skin has a wood-like background,  windows have brown headers and gray borders and buttons.

The ‘Smoke’ skin features an abstract background and dark-gray buttons:

How to select a new skin

When you use the calculator for the first time on a computer,  the ‘Wooden’ skin is automatically selected. To change theme, click on the button labeled ‘Change Skin’ on the top application toolbar.  Select the new skin by clicking on it’s name and wait a few moments for the theme to load from the server. Your theme choice is saved and will be automatically reloaded the next time you use the calculator from the same computer.
