DisplayFusion 3.1.8 Released!

I am very happy to announce the release of DisplayFusion 3.1.8! Despite this being a small point release, it is jam-packed with new features and bug fixes. There's something for everyone! The official DisplayFusion Change Log contains a long, boring list of things that have changed, so I'll do my best to summarize the most exciting things here.

There are a pile of new features:

  • Added a "Don't snap windows while 'Shift' is pressed" option
  • Added a "Pause wallpaper changes while on battery power" option
  • Added a new HotKey and TitleBar Button: "Toggle Window Always on Top"
  • Added a new HotKey and TitleBar Button: "Move window to monitor #X"
  • Added a new HotKey and TitleBar Button: "Move all windows to monitor #X"
  • Vladstudio random image changer now chooses from all the images, not just the newest 100 images
  • Improved taskbar button dragging
  • Wallpaper and Settings windows now open on the monitor the mouse cursor is currently on
  • Wallpaper window now automatically re-sizes itself to fit on smaller resolution monitors (like netbooks)
  • Wallpaper images can now be scaled by a certain percent to enlarge or shrink the image
  • Added new options for middle-clicking taskbar buttons on the DisplayFusion taskbars

What a party! Of course, a new release wouldn't be complete without a generous helping of bug fixes as well. Let's take a look at some of the more important fixes:

  • Taskbar compatibility improvements: Stardock DeskScapes, Stardock WindowBlinds, Winamp, Microsoft Office 2007/2010
  • TitleBar Button compatibility improvements: Stardock DeskScapes, Stardock WindowBlinds, Trillian Astra, LogMeIn Hamachi, Google Chrome, Opera 10.50
  • TitleBar Buttons no longer disappear when partially hidden by another window
  • TitleBar Button glow effect is now much improved, no longer flickers (Windows 7, Vista)
  • Taskbar buttons no longer show double ampersands
  • Taskbar is correctly adjusted when another docked application is closed (no more gaps along the monitor edge)
  • Taskbar colour is now almost perfect when Windows Aero translucency is disabled
  • When a taskbar is set to auto-hide, the taskbar is now shown when a taskbar button starts flashing

I would encourage everyone to update to the new version today. If you are already a DisplayFusion Pro user, you have probably already downloaded and installed the new update automatically, because DisplayFusion Pro can do awesome things like that.

If you are using the Free version of DisplayFusion, and would like to help support the future development of DisplayFusion, please consider purchasing your very own DisplayFusion Pro license. It helps cover the cost of web hosting, bandwidth, development/testing/support time along with purchasing all of the crazy hardware needed to test DisplayFusion in different configurations.

Thanks everyone, and I hope you continue to enjoy DisplayFusion!
