DisplayFusion 3.0.3 Beta

Jon Tackabury (BFS)'s profile on WallpaperFusion.com
If anyone is interested they can try out the new version 3.0.3 beta. You can download it here:
http://www.binaryfortress.com/Temp/DisplayFusionSetup_TEST6.exe

It is still marked as version 3.0.2, but you can see the language files are marked as version 3.0.3. I am planning on releasing this on Sunday night, if there are no major problems found. :)

Thanks!

Thanks Jon. If this is the same build I was emailed about, I've been running in on both my work machine and home machine. Unfortunately, I saw the taskbar problem on both machines today (home and work). Spunky little bug, that's for sure...

I just built and posted this build about 15 minutes ago. It has some additional fixes to prevent that crazy behaviour. The new .exe file should have a timestamp of roughly 9:30pm (EST). Thanks!

I hate to sound like a McDonald's commercial, but....

I'm lovin' it. I do have a request, though.

I don't believe this is Win7 specific, as what I am seeing makes me think this is the way you have programmed the DFTB....

When using the transparency, everything goes transparent - is there any way to *not* have the text on the TB buttons go invisible? With Win7 my taskbar is as invisible as it gets except for the pinned items as well as the text on the running programs - I was hoping to emulate that in the DFTB as Vista was the same way- regardless of transparency, the running items (more specifically the test on the running items) would remain readable....

If not, now worries....
I am I.

This would be cool, but I'm not sure how to accomplish it yet. With winforms translucency in .NET 2.0, when you set a window to be a certain opacity all of the child controls also take on that level of opacity. This means I can't have something 50% opaque and have the text or buttons look different. I'm looking into some of the newer DWM API calls in Vista/Win7, but nothing worth testing in the works yet.

Of course I'm looking. Cleaner Vista/Win7 integration, and making it look more native has been hanging over my head for a while now. The taskbar is pixel-perfect (or pretty darn close) in Windows XP and Windows 2000, and I want to get there eventually with Vista/Win7 as well.

TBH, it looks pretty damn good in Vista too...IMO better than the Vista native taskbar

Just so I understand how DF works in W7 so far: It's showing all programs open on it's taskbar, not just the ones on the second monitor. Otherwise, sweet!

No, you can choose either mode.

Jon - did you get my PM?
I am I.

Hey, the new draggable taskbar buttons in the beta work great by the way...

Excellent to hear. I have fixed a few quirks with it, and I'll probably post another test build tonight.
