After my initial post about starting a private beta for DisplayFusion v2.3 I received an overwhelming response. I had to start turning people away to keep the number of testers to a manageable size. However, I ended up with a very diverse test group - which is exactly what I was looking for. There are people using Windows XP, Vista (x86 and x64), Server 2003 and Server 2008. Some people have Windows Themes enabled, some don't. Most are running English operating systems, but there are a few that are running localized copies of DisplayFusion. Testing is going extremely well, so I thought I would just highlight some of the exciting things coming in DisplayFusion v2.3:

Multi-Monitor Taskbar Support

  • Adds a taskbar to every monitor
  • Takes advantage of Windows Themes so it looks like a native part of the operating system
  • Works and looks excellent with or without Windows Themes enabled
  • Full right-click context menu support for all taskbar items
  • Option to hide taskbar items from the Windows taskbar if they are present on the DisplayFusion taskbar

New Mouse Shortcut:

  • Middle-clicking on a window's caption bar will move it to the next monitor

Completely Re-designed Settings Window:

  • Easier to navigate
  • Options are grouped and ordered more logically

Integration with

  • Integrated just like Flickr in DisplayFusion
  • Choose single images, or have DisplayFusion select random images on a timer

This has turned out to be a substantial new release. With the numerous bug-fixes and tons of new functionality, this is shaping up to be one of the biggest DisplayFusion releases ever.

With these new changes, and after much deliberation, I have decided to adjust DisplayFusion's pricing. Effective January 1, 2009 DisplayFusion's price will be changing to $20 (CAD). I believe this new price is still a fair representation of what DisplayFusion is worth, especially taking into account the additional functionality version 2.3 will bring. If you are interested in how much this will cost in your local currency I have done the calculation for a few of the major currencies here:

  • CAD: $20.00 (base price in Canadian Dollars)
  • USD: $15.50 (US Dollars)
  • EUR: €12.20 (Euros)
  • GBP: £10.60 (British Pounds)

Please keep in mind that the exchange rate for each of these currencies will fluctuate. I am announcing this price change 1 month in advance so that people currently evaluating DisplayFusion Pro will still have time to finish their trial and purchase a Pro license at the current price. Also, effective immediately, I have introduced volume discounts on the purchase page. This is how the discounts work:

  • Purchase 2 or more licenses and receive 20% off each license
  • Purchase 3 or more licenses and receive 30% off each license
  • Purchase 5 or more licenses and receive 40% off each license

If you want to use DisplayFusion Pro on more than one computer, this is an excellent way to purchase multiple licenses and save some money at the same time. As always, I would love to hear any feedback you have about any of these changes, or anything in general. You can use the contact page, or you can find me on Twitter. Thank you for your continued support, and I look forward to hearing from you.

This program is wonderful! Only one thing if the updates were more user friendly. I don't have a clue how to download new updates. Every time i start up my computer it will say about an update but by the time i get online i got to do it manually but i have to come to this site, Than what? If i can't find it right away I'm done i don't like to have to read a bunch of stuff trying to find out how to update. Besides that minor little thing this great.

2Dcore: I have tried to make the updates as friendly as possible. When you go to the website there should be a "Download Now" button to download the latest version. Also, if you have the Pro version of DisplayFusion it will download and install the new version automatically. :)
