DisplayFusion 3.1.3 Released!

September 16, 2009

I am very happy to announce the release of DisplayFusion 3.1.3! This new version takes care of a number of small bugs, as well as some long-standing issues. I would like to thank everyone who submitted bug reports through the DisplayFusion Online Support page, the support email address and even Twitter. Without everyone's feedback it would have taken much longer to troubleshoot and fix these issues. Here are some of the highlights for this release:

  • Added a "Use transitions when changing wallpaper (Windows 7 only)" setting
  • Taskbar now works correctly in Windows 2000 in all situations
  • Windows no longer redraw incorrectly after being moved with the middle-click mouse move in rare situations (Chrome 4 dev, for example)
  • Taskbar shouldn't show twice on each monitor in rare situations anymore
  • Taskbar Buttons now correctly scale when font-scaling is used
  • TitleBar Buttons now correctly scale when font-scaling is used
  • Wallpaper changes no longer cause the desktop/applications to flicker/redraw
  • Fixed an issue that caused the hooks to not be reloaded in certain situations after a full-screen application closed
  • TitleBar Buttons no longer appear over-top of dialog windows in some situations

If you would like to see all of the issues that have been fixed in this release, please check out the complete DisplayFusion Change Log. I would encourage all DisplayFusion supporters to update to this new version today to take advantage of all fixes and new features!

DisplayFusion 3.1 Released!

September 5, 2009

I am very happy to announce the release of DisplayFusion 3.1! This release brings a bucket-full of bug fixes, as well as some exciting new features. The most exciting new feature is the addition of optional TitleBar Buttons for all Free and Pro users. These TitleBar Buttons can be used to perform the same action as the built-in or customized HotKeys. This way, you can perform the HotKey's actions with just a click of the mouse. The TitleBar Buttons look just like native Window's buttons. Here is an example of what they look like in Windows 7:

Here are some of the other highlights in this release:

  • Added a "Show images in alphabetical order" option for the local random image changer
  • Wallpaper changes now fade from image to image in Windows 7
  • Added a "Taskbar Position" menu item to the right-click Taskbar context menu for manually setting the position
  • Improved fullscreen app/game detection
  • Faster taskbar button and text updating
  • Taskbar is much less CPU/memory intensive when updating buttons
  • Taskbar corruption issues have been reduced/eliminated
  • MDI child windows now snap correctly in their parent's frame (ex: Excel 2003/2007)
  • Error with FIPS no longer occurs: "This implementation is not part of the Windows Platform FIPS validated cryptographic algorithms."

If you would like to see all of the changes in this release, just check out the complete DisplayFusion Change Log. I would like to send out a special Thank You to everyone who helped test this release! It was a long beta test, with 15 betas tested over 2 months, but everyone stuck with it and helped to shape DisplayFusion into what you see today. I would encourage everyone to update to this new version as soon as possible to take advantage of all the new features and fixes. Thanks everyone!

DisplayFusion 3.0.6 Released

June 10, 2009

I am very happy to announce the release of DisplayFusion 3.0.6! Actually, it was released last weekend and I forgot to announce the release. Oops! Well, never mind that, the new version is out there and it's better than ever. The observant among you may have noticed that there was no version 3.0.5 announcement. Unfortunately version 3.0.5 was released then followed up 3 days later by version 3.0.6. Version 3.0.5 represented a significant change in the way DisplayFusion handled the taskbars, so I was expecting a few bugs to slip through. And a few did slip through, but no worries, version 3.0.6 was released quickly to take care of any loose ends. These new versions have a number of changes:

  • Added the "All taskbars show relevant windows" in Windows 7
  • Taskbars now use Aero rendering in Windows 7
  • Better Winamp compatibility
  • Taskbar buttons with & in the text would show up incorrectly
  • Added an "Open Task Manager" to the DisplayFusion context menu
  • Changed: Added a bunch of new advanced settings
  • Taskbar window thumbnail previews now use the windows themes and look more native
  • Taskbar items now blink/flash when they need attention (ex: instant messaging windows)
  • Performance improvements (reduced CPU usage, reduced response time... etc)

As always, this represents only a fraction of the actual changes in this release, and only highlights the major advances. For a complete run-down head over to the official change log. If you haven't been prompted to upgrade already, I would encourage you to head over to the DisplayFusion page and download the new version today!

DisplayFusion 3.0.4 Released

May 10, 2009

I am very happy to announce the release of DisplayFusion 3.0.4! This new version has some important bug fixes, along with some exciting new features. Some of the biggest new features are the addition of taskbar thumbnail window previews and the ability to drag/drop files onto the DisplayFusion taskbar items, just like the Windows ones. Here are some more of the new features and fixes:

  • Added taskbar thumbnail window previews (hover over taskbar items for a thumbnail window preview)
  • Added drag/drop taskbar button sorting (on DisplayFusion taskbars only)
  • Taskbars are no longer removed/re-added when closing the Settings window
  • Dragging over a DisplayFusion taskbar item now restores that window so you can drag/drop in it
  • Added an option to disable the "Do you wish to apply these settings?" wallpaper prompt
  • Full Microsoft Excel 2002/2003/2007 taskbar compatibility in all operating systems
  • Fixed an issue that caused the taskbar icons to be lower quality in certain situations
  • Fixed clicking on a focused taskbar item didn't always minimize it in Windows 7
  • Fixed monitor order was sometimes different than Windows and affected window movement hotkeys
  • Fixed an issue that caused the wallpaper to be tiled incorrectly when high DPI settings are in use in Vista/Win7

As you can see, there are a number of important changes. You can see the complete list of changes in the DisplayFusion Change Log. There is also a new Portuguese (Portugal) translation available on the DisplayFusion Languages page - thanks Rui Pedro da Silva Gomes da Costa!

I would encourage everyone to update as soon as you can to take advantage of the new functionality.

DisplayFusion Reaches 500,000 Downloads!

May 5, 2009

Raise a glass with me as I celebrate DisplayFusion's 500,000th download! Since being released in August 2007, DisplayFusion has racked up more than a half a million downloads. Unfortunately, I only started tracking downloads in January 2008. Starting from January 2008, DisplayFusion reached 500,000 this afternoon! If I'm not mistaken, I believe a celebration is in order. To commemorate this special event I will be raising DisplayFusion's price to $500,000 per license. Oh wait, that doesn't sound right. How about 50% off instead? Starting right now, until Wednesday at midnight (GMT-5), DisplayFusion will be on sale for only $10 per license! Volume discounts still apply as well. That means you can pickup 2 licenses for only $16, or 5 licenses for just $30 (Canadian Dollars). This sale is only on for 24 hours, so if you've been waiting to pickup DisplayFusion Pro now is your chance!
