DisplayFusion 9.6 Beta 4 Now Available!

We're very excited to announce that DisplayFusion 9.6 Beta 4 is now available for download! This version overhauls the backend code for Monitor Configuration and Monitor Profiles to resolve a bunch of compatibility issues with various setups.

Important Notes!

  • The first time you open the Settings > Screen Saver tab after installing 9.6 Beta 4, it will be very slow to open, due to Windows Defender locking the .scr files for a long time during the initial scan.
  • Keen observers will notice that 9.6 Beta 4 is the first beta we've posted since 9.5. We distributed earlier betas privately for a few issues, but didn't post them publicly.
  • We've made some big backend changes to Monitor Configuration and Monitor Profiles. If you run into trouble with your profiles after updating, you may need to re-save them.
  • We've added some completely anonymous telemetry for crash reporting. You can disable this with an Advanced Setting, and we list what data is sent in our EULA.
