DisplayFusion 3.1.5 Released!

October 19, 2009

I am very happy to announce the release of DisplayFusion 3.1.5! This new version is jam-packed with changes, including some overdue cosmetic improvements and important bug fixes. After 1 month of development and endless testing by myself and the DisplayFusion community, it is finally ready for everyone to enjoy. Quite a bit has changed, but here are some of the highlights in this release:

  • Added a "Middle-clicking a taskbar item opens a new application instance" setting for the multi-monitor taskbars (same feature as in Windows 7)
  • Taskbar thumbnail previews now use the Windows 7 style slide/morph effect, instead of fading in/out (affects all versions of Windows)
  • Taskbar now supports Aero rendering in Windows Vista
  • Taskbars are no longer hidden by the "Aero Peek" feature in Windows 7
  • Taskbar thumbnail previews now look correct when Windows font scaling is used
  • Taskbar compatibility improvements: Visual Basic 6, ImgBurn, NewsLeecher, LexisNexis NoteMap, NuSphere PhpED, WinSCP
  • TitleBar Button compatibility improvements: Skype, iTunes, Google Chrome, VMware Player, Console windows, PuTTY
  • Mouse Hook compatibility improvements: SRWare Iron
  • HotKeys and TitleBar Buttons can now position console-style windows correctly (command prompt, Putty... etc)
  • The TitleBar Buttons feature now correctly detects the background/foreground images in Windows 7 and Windows Vista "classic/standard" mode
  • Taskbar thumbnail preview tooltip no longer covers the first taskbar items when the taskbar is vertical
  • Failed wallpaper updates don't show duplicate tray notifications anymore (results in less duplicate tray notifications)

This is just a taste of all the things that have been added and improved in this release. If you are interested in checking out everything that has changed, I invite you to look at the full DisplayFusion Change Log. If you haven't updated to this new version yet, I would encourage you to update today to take advantage of all the improvements.

DisplayFusion 3.1 Released!

September 5, 2009

I am very happy to announce the release of DisplayFusion 3.1! This release brings a bucket-full of bug fixes, as well as some exciting new features. The most exciting new feature is the addition of optional TitleBar Buttons for all Free and Pro users. These TitleBar Buttons can be used to perform the same action as the built-in or customized HotKeys. This way, you can perform the HotKey's actions with just a click of the mouse. The TitleBar Buttons look just like native Window's buttons. Here is an example of what they look like in Windows 7:

DisplayFusion 3.1 Window TitleBar Buttons
Window TitleBar Buttons

Here are some of the other highlights in this release:

  • Added a "Show images in alphabetical order" option for the local random image changer
  • Wallpaper changes now fade from image to image in Windows 7
  • Added a "Taskbar Position" menu item to the right-click Taskbar context menu for manually setting the position
  • Improved fullscreen app/game detection
  • Faster taskbar button and text updating
  • Taskbar is much less CPU/memory intensive when updating buttons
  • Taskbar corruption issues have been reduced/eliminated
  • MDI child windows now snap correctly in their parent's frame (ex: Excel 2003/2007)
  • Error with FIPS no longer occurs: "This implementation is not part of the Windows Platform FIPS validated cryptographic algorithms."

If you would like to see all of the changes in this release, just check out the complete DisplayFusion Change Log. I would like to send out a special Thank You to everyone who helped test this release! It was a long beta test, with 15 betas tested over 2 months, but everyone stuck with it and helped to shape DisplayFusion into what you see today. I would encourage everyone to update to this new version as soon as possible to take advantage of all the new features and fixes. Thanks everyone!

FileSeek 1.8.3 Released

August 16, 2009

I am very happy to announce the release of FileSeek 1.8.3! This new release adds the ability to filter search results by the Last Modified Date, as well as including a number of important bug fixes. One other important change is the default action when double-clicking a search result item. It now performs the default Windows "Open" command, not the "Open with Other Application" command. Here are some highlights from this release:

  • Added an option to filter results by the last modified date
  • Filename matches now have a different icon than the file content matches
  • Double-clicking a result will now perform the default "Open", not "Open with Other Application"
  • Sorting by the "Date Modified" column now works correctly
  • Sorting by the "Line Number" column is now much faster
  • Folder name matches now use the "Include" search pattern, as well as the "Query" text

You can see the full list of changes in the FileSeek Change Log. I would encourage everyone using FileSeek to update today. If you have auto-update enabled in FileSeek you will be prompted to update automatically. For everyone else, just visit the FileSeek download page and get up-to-date today!

FileSeek 1.8.1 Released

July 18, 2009

I am very happy to announce the release of FileSeek 1.8.1! A few issues made it into the 1.8 release, so this release is a minor release to take care of those things. These issues have been around since version 1.5, when the filename matching was added. Here are the things that are fixed/changed in this release:

  • Folder name matches are now displayed similar to filename matches (matched folder name in the "File" column, with the base path in the "Path" column
  • Folder name matches will only occur in the last part of the path, not the complete path (reduces false-positives)
  • Folder names aren't incorrectly matched when the Query box is left blank
  • File and Folder name matches both now use the "Regular expression query" setting

As always, you can view the complete change log if you would like all the details. If you have auto-update enabled you will be notified the next time you start FileSeek, otherwise just head over to the FileSeek page and download it today!

TrayStatus 1.0 Released

June 20, 2009

Do you have a notebook or keyboard without a NumLock or CapsLock indicator light? Do you have a computer without a hard drive activity light? If so, then TrayStatus is for you. I recently purchased a notebook that had no indicator lights at all, and after a couple of weeks I got frustrated and created TrayStatus. TrayStatus can show you the following information in your taskbar's notification area (system tray):

  • Num Lock status
  • Caps Lock status
  • Scroll Lock status
  • Hard Drive activity (read or write) with current speed in a tooltip
TrayStatus

If you need to show this information in your taskbar, download TrayStatus today!

DisplayFusion 3.0.6 Released

June 10, 2009

I am very happy to announce the release of DisplayFusion 3.0.6! Actually, it was released last weekend and I forgot to announce the release. Oops! Well, never mind that, the new version is out there and it's better than ever. The observant among you may have noticed that there was no version 3.0.5 announcement. Unfortunately version 3.0.5 was released then followed up 3 days later by version 3.0.6. Version 3.0.5 represented a significant change in the way DisplayFusion handled the taskbars, so I was expecting a few bugs to slip through. And a few did slip through, but no worries, version 3.0.6 was released quickly to take care of any loose ends. These new versions have a number of changes:

  • Added the "All taskbars show relevant windows" in Windows 7
  • Taskbars now use Aero rendering in Windows 7
  • Better Winamp compatibility
  • Taskbar buttons with & in the text would show up incorrectly
  • Added an "Open Task Manager" to the DisplayFusion context menu
  • Changed: Added a bunch of new advanced settings
  • Taskbar window thumbnail previews now use the windows themes and look more native
  • Taskbar items now blink/flash when they need attention (ex: instant messaging windows)
  • Performance improvements (reduced CPU usage, reduced response time... etc)

As always, this represents only a fraction of the actual changes in this release, and only highlights the major advances. For a complete run-down head over to the official change log. If you haven't been prompted to upgrade already, I would encourage you to head over to the DisplayFusion page and download the new version today!
