The latest update is now available for ModernMix™, which gives users the capability to run Windows® 8 Modern (Metro) apps in resizable windows on the desktop. Background sound support is now available for modern apps like Netflix, enabling users to both hear and watch a movie while simultaneously chatting in Skype for example.

Features:

  • Background sound support for apps that are not the active window
  • App settings page now lists all modern apps, and has more right click options. Double clicking apps in the list will also open the right click menu
  • New right click option to always force full screen
  • Assorted improvements and bug fixes

Additional enhancement details can be found here: http://www.stardock.com/products/modernmix/history.asp

I assume this doesn't mean I can voice chat in skype, but still hear the movie?

You did that on purpose, didn't you?

So, I have a previous version installed.  Is the app setup with a pop up indicating a new version is available?  Just curious if this is something I need to check for updates on my own or if there is some sort of notification process outside of tracking releases.  Thanks!

I'm not sure what the status is on the updater, but downloading from your account or via Stardock Central would be the easiest way.
