Today we released new version of DotNetBar with world’s first Office 2013 style Ribbon control. Then we top that with built-in 220 symbols library which can be used on our buttons (courtesy of FontAwesome). And there is much more. Here is screen-shot of new Office 2013 style:

We’ve also updated the Backstage Application Menu to fit new Office 2013 appearance:

Our new Office 2013 styling comes with unlimited color schemes generator which will generate complete color scheme based on single color you specify:

We have also included 220 symbols library (courtesy of FontAwesome) that you can use instead of images on our buttons. Simply set Symbol and SymbolSize properties using designer. Nice thing about these symbols is that they are vector based which means they will render well in wide range of sizes and they will use current color scheme settings for button to render themselves. They are perfect fit for Office 2013 and Metro/Modern UI applications. Here is screen-shot of symbols:

And here is a simple button using a Symbol as image:
