DisplayFusion 3.1.7 Released!

I am very happy to announce the release of DisplayFusion 3.1.7! This new version brings a pile of changes and bug fixes along with it. It has more changes than any version since the main 3.1 release almost 6 months ago. It brings with it a completely overhauled Wallpaper window, a new Compatibility tab in the Settings window and more Context Menu options when right-clicking on a DisplayFusion Taskbar.

Here are some of the large new features:

  • Window Snapping to other application windows (not just monitor edges)
  • Can show an optional monitor selector when dragging maximized windows
  • The new Compatibility tab in the Settings window can help you tweak DisplayFusion features on a per-application basis
  • 5 new languages come bundled with the installer, for a total of 10 installed languages
  • There are 5 new Advanced Settings for people who want a bit more tweakability

There are some changes to existing features as well:

  • The "Move Next/Previous" HotKeys now treat monitors in their logical order, not just the numeric order that Windows assigns
  • Right-clicking any of the TitleBar Buttons gives you access to the standard DisplayFusion Context Menu
  • All DisplayFusion windows now respond correctly when you press Enter or Esc, and important functions have a key accelerator assigned (Alt + key)
  • The random wallpaper changer can be paused automatically when a specific application is detected by using the new Compatibility tab

Of course, there are many important bug fixes as well:

  • Better Taskbar and TitleBar Button compatibility with a range of applications
  • Taskbar text rendering is much cleaner, and looks more like the Windows taskbar in Vista and Win7
  • Taskbar and TitleBar Buttons now supports hacked themes in Windows XP, Vista and Win7 (hacked uxtheme.dll)
  • DisplayFusion is much quicker to respond when a monitor is added or removed when re-adjusting wallpaper, taskbars... etc
  • Improved fullscreen application detection for pausing system hooks (if enabled)
  • Huge quality improvements in the TitleBar Button rendering when Font Scaling is enabled in Windows
  • System tray notification balloon text is no longer truncated incorrectly when displaying notification messages
  • Taskbar Preview Thumbnails now show the correct spreadsheet window with Excel 2003 and 2007

Believe it or not, there are still dozens of other fixes and enhancements that made it into this release as well. If you would like to see the full list of changes, please visit the DisplayFusion Change Log. I would like to send out a huge Thank You to everyone who helped with this new version. From the hundreds of people who submitted bug reports and feature requests, to the dozens of beta testers in the DisplayFusion Forum, to the dozens of people who contribute to one of DisplayFusion's 25 different language translations. This new version wouldn't have been possible without you!

Some of the new features are for DisplayFusion Pro users only, like the application window edge snapping. If you are currently a DisplayFusion Free user and would like to help support this application, I would encourage you to check out what the Pro version has to offer. With Multi-Monitor Taskbars, random wallpaper changers, and enhanced TitleBar Button and HotKey support, the $25 Pro version is worth every penny. But, of course, I'm biased so why not try it out for free with a 30 day trial license.

I would encourage everyone to update to the new version today to take advantage of the increased performance, stability and new features. Thanks everyone!

Can I just say that this software is awesome? I love the task bars and different background picture options. I love this program. Thank you so much for developing it.
