Artist's Note

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!

You need to install Rainmeter (2.4 or better) which can be found here.

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