Almost made it, i didn't release the updated xClock, but i got the core 1.2 build 23 release finished last night, and you can download it from www.coreshell.info. It features the following changes:
Added partiel DDE support, core handles the DDE messages but does nothing with them.
Added internal colorcodes, you can now use the colorvalues to refer to windows own color settings (see the docs for more info).
Added priority setting, you can now control at what priority core runs.
I hope to finish the DDE server stuff in the coming weeks, and then i will put out a new build. Apart from that there aren't any plans to add more stuff to core, at least not at the moment. After i complete the current bunch of modules ill get back to work on SUIT and when i get it ready for a release it will be merged with the current core codebase (id say SUIT is about 15-20 hours away from completion, so a good weekend of work and we should see a release).
Apart from this there are a couple of new webenhanments in the pipeline, both for this site and for the coreshell.info domain.
