DisplayFusion 3.0.5 Beta (May 25, 2009)

Jon Tackabury (BFS)'s profile on WallpaperFusion.com
Another day, another beta. Here is the quick rundown:
- VB6 compatibility
- Better auto-hiding (shouldn't get stuck behind any applications)
- Button preview now has a 250ms delay by default
- Button preview has a 5 second timeout then it disappears
- MUCH better Windows 7 Aero... almost pixel perfect now
- Hung application detection, to avoid button preview stalling
- Moved the taskbar item right-click context menu to the mouse cursor position, not button position (more consistent with Windows)
- Chinese is now included as a standard language

We're getting close to release day! Please give any and all feedback. Thanks!

Man, you are TIRELESS! Running this latest on XP sp3 at work and W7 RC at home..

I had an issue with the last release where I lost the middle click/move to other monitor functionality. I think it was caused by a DOOM2 mod program that screwed with the mouse function, but nothing to loose any sleep over...

@benway: Let me know if you think this is a DisplayFusion issue, and how to reproduce it and I'll take a look. I haven't experienced any problems with middle-click moving windows so far... but some applications can be troublesome.

I am having problem with Maxthon 2.5.1. When I run it on the second monitor it does not minimize to the task bar. I am ruining Windows 7 RC.

@martinasencio: Is Maxthon properly detected and displayed on the DisplayFusion taskbar?

Auto-hide still getting stuck. If I hold my cursor where the taskbar should have popped up, I still get a button preview, but no taskbar visable...

@SysWiz: Do you have the Windows taskbar set to auto-hide as well? If so, can you try disabling that and see if the DisplayFusion taskbar starts behaving properly. I think I know what the issue is, I just want to confirm that this is the case. Thanks!

Yup. I had it set to auto-hide. I unchecked it. No change in DF taskbar. I restarted DF and it appears to work properly now that I have the main taskbar set to not auto-hide. It looks like you are on the right track...

Verified the program Doomsday Engine somehow nullifies DF's middle mouse click to scoot windows to the other monitor. It's kind of a DOS window type thing and you have no mouse outside the window while it's running. Seriously, though, this is such an obscure program I wouldn't bother with it. Restarting DF fixes things.

Side note: Doomsday Engine is a cool program, though. It takes the original DOOM2 game and swaps true 3D graphics. A trip!

Ouch....

Is all I can say after trying to install the latest Opera build. Until the UAC prompt appeared I was getting enormous amounts of system lag including those dreaded mouse freezes. And I still got some more after the UAC prompt until the installer window came up. I've been getting some lag running some software (UAC prompts) but this was nothing like it

And surprise, surprise after I closed DF and ran it again I experienced no such thing. Is my DF haunted? I see I'll have to close it and execute it again every time I login

Are you seeing this only with Opera? Not too many people using it these days, so this problem may not have been seen until now.

No, I'm seeing it with everything if it involves a UAC prompt or high (+50%) CPU usage, like Virtualization. That was just the worst case so far.

Running DF beta at my office, XP SP2 (not my choice!), dual monitors. I can confirm that the taskbar item blinking DOES work. Still waiting to see if it'll freeze. I'll give it a week. Sometimes it happens twice a day, sometimes I'll go a couple days without. We shall see!

I can't seem to replicate the UAC system lagging. Can you try something for me? Install the May 27th beta (after I release it tonight) and enable the setting called "Prevent System Hooks". It is a special debug setting I added to this beta. You can find out more about it here:

If you are still having the problem, can you post your Troubleshooting information from DisplayFusion immediately after you experience some lag? Thanks!
