ClipboardFusion 2.0.4 Released!

September 8, 2010

I am very happy to announce the release of ClipboardFusion 2.0.4! This new release is a small bug-fix release, and doesn't add any significant new features. The first bug that was tackled was an intermittent stability issue, which should now be cleared up. The second issue was a complete re-working of all the windows in ClipboardFusion to make them friendly for people running higher DPI (font scaling) settings in Windows. ClipboardFusion now correctly scales all of it's own windows and controls. If ClipboardFusion detects that the window won't fit on the screen after being scaled it will disable scaling for that window so that none of the controls are cropped. This should help people running 125% scaling (or higher) with a resolution of 1024x768 or lower. Previously the bottom of the Settings window would be chopped off, making the window unusable. I always try to make an extra effort to make all of my applications as accessible to everyone as possible, and I'm sorry it took so long to get ClipboardFusion up to a higher standard. I would encourage everyone to update today, especially if you run higher DPI settings. Thanks everyone!

DisplayFusion License Changes

August 30, 2010

DisplayFusion was first released in August of 2007, over 3 years ago! During the last 3 years, DisplayFusion has grown into a must-have utility for anyone with multiple monitors. Licensing has changed as well over the years, with the introduction of a paid Pro version nearly 2 years ago. This paid Pro version was licensed on a per-computer basis, requiring multiple licenses to be purchased for use on multiple computers. After quite a bit of feedback from the DisplayFusion community, I have decided to shuffle the licensing around a little bit.

New License Type: Personal Home license

Starting today, you can now purchase a DisplayFusion Pro Personal Home license. This new license is for home users ONLY, and is not a valid license for company users. The license allows a home user to purchase 1 license, and install it on all of their computers. It's like a mini site license for home users. If you are a home user that has already purchased a DisplayFusion Pro license and you would like to upgrade to a Personal Home license at a discounted price, please contact me.

Free Version License Changes

Another licensing change is a new restriction on free version usage. Starting with version 3.2, the free version of DisplayFusion will no longer be allowed to be used in a company environment. If you are using the free version of DisplayFusion in a company, you have 2 options: keep using 3.1.10 without any restrictions or convince your company to purchase a DisplayFusion Pro license. A single license is just $25, and with multiple licenses you can reduce this to just $15 per license. DisplayFusion needs your support, and every DisplayFusion Pro license purchased will help!

New License Types and Restrictions

Final Thoughts

If you have any questions or comments, I encourage you to contact me. If you are using the free version of DisplayFusion, and you can't live without it, why not pitch-in and support the development of future versions? It's only $25 and your purchased license will be valid with all future versions of DisplayFusion!

August 26, 2010

I am very happy to announce the release of FileSeek 2.0!

Also, you can now see the size of the files in the results list thanks to the new "File Size" column.

ClipboardFusion Pricing Changes

July 12, 2010

The pricing information in this article is outdated, please visit the Free vs. Pro comparison page for an updated list of features and pricing.

Over the last couple of months, I have received quite a bit of feedback regarding ClipboardFusion and the ClipboardFusion Online pricing. As a result of this excellent feedback, I have decided to eliminate the monthly subscriptions, and reduce the price of the yearly subscription to just $16 per year! Of course, ClipboardFusion itself is completely free, and always will be. However, if you would like to sync your clipboard text and share it with other devices, a ClipboardFusion subscription is just what you need! Here is a quick rundown on the new pricing:

  • 1 Year: $16
  • 2 Years: $24

If you own a DisplayFusion Pro license, you can receive an additional 25% this price:

  • 1 Year with DisplayFusion Pro: $12
  • 2 Years with DisplayFusion Pro: $16

These are some great prices, and they are permanent, not a temporary sale price! If you are a current ClipboardFusion Online subscriber, just head over to the purchase page to take advantage of this new pricing.

FileSeek 1.9.8 Released!

June 30, 2010

I am very happy to announce the release of FileSeek 1.9.8! This new release adds a couple new search related options, as well as fixing an important issue. Here is a quick rundown on the changes in this new version:

  • Added an option to skip link/junction files and folders (can result in less duplicate file-searching)
  • Added an option to treat the all "Include Files" filters as wildcards (ex: foo is treated as *foo*)
  • Longer proxy passwords weren't saved correctly (everyone will need to re-enter their proxy password)
  • Using the Date Modified filter sometimes showed incorrect "matches found" and "files searched" totals

If you would like to see the the complete list of changes, please visit the FileSeek Change Log. I would encourage everyone to upgrade to this new version today to take advantage of these new options and bug fixes. Thanks everyone!

DisplayFusion 3.1.9 Released!

June 28, 2010

I am very happy to announce the release of DisplayFusion 3.1.9! Along with this new release, comes the new home of DisplayFusion, located at displayfusion.com. I would like to send out a big thanks to Chris from Sockit Solutions for designing the new website, and for helping getting it off the ground. The new website makes it much easier to look-up information about DisplayFusion, like the Advanced Settings, Support options and, of course, the Downloads.

Now, back to the 3.1.9 release! This release started out as a small release, intended to address a few functionality issues before the major 3.2 release, but it turned into much more than that! There is a big new feature in this release, called the "Windows Logon Background" changer. In the DisplayFusion Settings window, you will see a new tab titled "Windows Logon". You can use this new feature to change your Windows logon background image using local images, or images from one of the online providers (Flickr or Vladstudio). I love this new feature, and I've made sure all of my machines now have custom logon backgrounds.

The Taskbars also received much love. You can now set the Auto-Hide setting on a per-Taskbar basis, as well as disabling Taskbars on a per-monitor basis. The Window Snapping feature received a bit of a makeover, with the addition of a helpful guide to help you set it up in the Settings window. There also a ton, and I mean a ton, of bug fixes. From everything to Taskbar focus issues, to compatibility improvements for over a dozen applications. To see the complete list of changes, I invite you to visit the DisplayFusion Change Log.

If you haven't been prompted to upgrade yet, please visit the DisplayFusion Download page to download the new version today!

ClipboardFusion 2.0.2 Released!

June 24, 2010

I am very happy to announce the release of ClipboardFusion 2.0.2! This new release focuses on improving Macro support by adding new functions, as well as fixing a couple small issues. There are now 3 new MacroAPI functions: ClearClipboard, CopyText and SaveTextToCFO. If you are interested in creating or using existing Macros, just visit the ClipboardFusion Macros area. From here you can download pre-made Macros, as well as read documentation on how to use the MacroAPI functions. If you would like to see all of the changes in this new version please visit the ClipboardFusion Change Log. If you haven't already been prompted to update by the auto-updater, I would encourage you to download and install this new version today! Thanks everyone!
