I am very happy to announce the release of DisplayFusion 3.1.7! This new version brings a pile of changes and bug fixes along with it. It has more changes than any version since the main 3.1 release almost 6 months ago. It brings with it a completely overhauled Wallpaper window, a new Compatibility tab in the Settings window and more Context Menu options when right-clicking on a DisplayFusion Taskbar.
Here are some of the large new features:
There are some changes to existing features as well:
Of course, there are many important bug fixes as well:
Believe it or not, there are still dozens of other fixes and enhancements that made it into this release as well. If you would like to see the full list of changes, please visit the DisplayFusion Change Log. I would like to send out a huge Thank You to everyone who helped with this new version. From the hundreds of people who submitted bug reports and feature requests, to the dozens of beta testers in the DisplayFusion Forum, to the dozens of people who contribute to one of DisplayFusion's 25 different language translations. This new version wouldn't have been possible without you!
Some of the new features are for DisplayFusion Pro users only, like the application window edge snapping. If you are currently a DisplayFusion Free user and would like to help support this application, I would encourage you to check out what the Pro version has to offer. With Multi-Monitor Taskbars, random wallpaper changers, and enhanced TitleBar Button and HotKey support, the $25 Pro version is worth every penny. But, of course, I'm biased so why not try it out for free with a 30 day trial license.
I would encourage everyone to update to the new version today to take advantage of the increased performance, stability and new features. Thanks everyone!
I am very happy to announce the release of FileSeek 1.9.2! This release fixes a few long-standing issues, and adds some expanded search options. You can now treat your search query as a complete string (like all previous versions) or you can treat the query as words and find files that match any or all words. This new ability adds some much needed flexibility when searching files for multiple text strings. Another new addition is the "Search" tab in the Settings window. This adds a handful of new settings for configuring what will appear in the search results. For example, you can have filename matches appear that match the text query or the "include files" filter, or both. Previously, both matches were shown for filenames with no way to configure this. Here are a few more changes in this release:
You can see the complete history of changes in the FileSeek Change Log. Thank you to everyone who submitted bug reports and helped to test this new release. Thanks everyone!
ClipboardFusion 1.5 has been released! After 2 long years since the last version was released, a new version was a bit overdue. This version adds a ton of new functionality and fixes a bunch of issues. Along with the new features and bug fixes, ClipboardFusion has received a face-lift and now shares common icons with my other applications (like DisplayFusion and FileSeek) for a consistent look-and-feel. Here are some of the new features that have been introduced in this version:
If you would like to see the full list of changes, please visit the ClipboardFusion Change Log. Thanks everyone!
Did you know there are more than a dozen hidden settings that you can use to configure DisplayFusion that aren't available in Settings window? There are 4 settings just to control the appearance of the taskbar thumbnail preview windows. You can adjust their size, delay, animation behaviour and toggle the tooltips. If you are using 4 or more monitors, you may want to change the order that DisplayFusion treats your monitors. With the advanced settings you can change this order. You can find out more about these hidden settings on the DisplayFusion Advanced Settings page. These settings are recommended only for people who are comfortable using regedit to edit their registry. If that is you, I encourage you to see how you can fully customize DisplayFusion.
I am very happy to announce the release of FileSeek 1.9.1! This new release fixes a few performance issues, as well as adding some new search features. The long-awaited multiple folder searching is now here, and an option to hide file/folder access errors is also now available. Here are the changes in this release:
You can see the complete history of changes in the FileSeek Change Log. Thank you to everyone who submitted feature requests, and helped with testing!

I am happy to announce the release of ASP.NET ViewState Helper for Fiddler 1.1. This small update adds compatibility for Fiddler2 versions 2.1 and higher. If you are using an older version of Fiddler2, you don't need to update to this new release. If you are using a newer version of Fiddler2, and the ASP.NET ViewState Helper isn't working for you, this new release should fix it. As always, if you run into any issues please feel free to post in the Support Forum.
I am very happy to announce the release of DisplayFusion 3.1.6! This release has a hefty number of bug fixes, including some fixes for long-standing issues like high CPU usage when using the TitleBar Buttons. DisplayFusion now runs with less CPU usage, less memory usage and adds more features. One of the biggest new additions is the integrated help. Every window in DisplayFusion now has a "Help" button on it, and every option has some help text associated with it. You can view the online help here, or you can use the "Help" button inside DisplayFusion to take you to the specific section you need help with. Here is just a taste of some of the other new things in this version:
Of course, these are just the highlights from this release. To see the full list of changes, please visit the DisplayFusion Change Log. I would encourage everyone using DisplayFusion to update today to take advantage of these exciting new features, and bug fixes!
I am very happy to announce the release of iTunes COM Fix 1.1. The new version of iTunes COM Fix adds the ability to manually select the iTunes executable. This should help out anyone that has installed iTunes to a non-standard location outside of the Program Files folder.
What does iTunes COM Fix do? Sometimes after updating to a new version of iTunes, programs that interface with iTunes (like iTunes Sync) will stop working. This is caused by iTunes failing to register itself correctly as a COM object. This problem can show itself in different ways, but in iTunes Sync you will usually see an error like this:
System.InvalidCastException: Unable to cast COM object of type 'iTunesLib.iTunesAppClass' to interface type 'iTunesLib.IiTunes'.
Just download and run iTunes COM Fix to take care of this issue. It will attempt to register the new iTunes executable as a COM object so that any programs that rely on the iTunes API will start working again, without having to re-install anything. iTunes COM Fix is just a simple executable, with nothing to install, so it's quick and easy to use.
