FileSeek 1.9.6 Released!

April 12, 2010

I am very happy to announce the release of FileSeek 1.9.6! I don't normally release new versions so close together, but an important issue was brought to my attention that couldn't wait until the next scheduled release date. This new version fixes a major issue with folder name matching when using the "include files filter". It should now work as expected, without skipping any folders. I also took this opportunity to include a couple of new features as well. The results list now shows each file's correct icon, instead of a generic icon. To make multiple-folder searches easier, there is now a "Browse & Append" button on the main window. If you use this button, the folder you select will be appended to your search path instead of replacing it.

If you would like to see the complete list of changes, please visit the FileSeek Change Log. I would encourage everyone to update to version 1.9.6 as soon as possible so that folder searching will start working as expected. Thanks everyone!

FileSeek 1.9.5 Released!

April 7, 2010

I am very happy to announce the release of FileSeek 1.9.5! This release adds a few requested options, as well as fixing some minor interface glitches. The biggest change is the addition of an option to toggle sub-folder searching. Now you can choose whether to search only the selected folder, or the folder and all sub-folders. Also, the FileSeek window will now remember it's last position and state between uses. This should make it much easier for anyone who frequently opens and closes FileSeek and has to keep moving the window around. To see the complete list of changes, please visit the FileSeek Change Log. Thanks everyone!

DisplayFusion Video Roundup

March 30, 2010
DisplayFusion has been featured in a number of excellent YouTube videos, and I thought I would take some time today to highlight a few of them. This is not a complete list of all the videos about DisplayFusion, just a few randomly selected videos. I am not responsible for any of the content in these videos. Some of the videos are about older versions of DisplayFusion so the information may be a bit out of date, but I think they still have some useful tips. Enjoy!

TrayStatus 1.1 Released

March 22, 2010

I am very happy to announce the release of TrayStatus 1.1! This new version of TrayStatus fixes a few hard drive monitoring issues, and adds a handy Settings window, instead of editing an INI file by hand. Do you have a notebook or keyboard without a NumLock or CapsLock indicator light? Do you have a computer without a hard drive activity light? If so, then TrayStatus is for you. I recently purchased a notebook that had no indicator lights at all, and after a couple of weeks I got frustrated and created TrayStatus. TrayStatus can show you the following information in your taskbar's notification area (system tray):

  • Num Lock status
  • Caps Lock status
  • Scroll Lock status
  • Hard Drive activity (read or write) with current speed in a tooltip

If you need to show this information in your taskbar, download the new version of TrayStatus today!

DisplayFusion 3.1.8 Released!

March 18, 2010

I am very happy to announce the release of DisplayFusion 3.1.8! Despite this being a small point release, it is jam-packed with new features and bug fixes. There's something for everyone! The official DisplayFusion Change Log contains a long, boring list of things that have changed, so I'll do my best to summarize the most exciting things here.

There are a pile of new features:

  • Added a "Don't snap windows while 'Shift' is pressed" option
  • Added a "Pause wallpaper changes while on battery power" option
  • Added a new HotKey and TitleBar Button: "Toggle Window Always on Top"
  • Added a new HotKey and TitleBar Button: "Move window to monitor #X"
  • Added a new HotKey and TitleBar Button: "Move all windows to monitor #X"
  • Vladstudio random image changer now chooses from all the images, not just the newest 100 images
  • Improved taskbar button dragging
  • Wallpaper and Settings windows now open on the monitor the mouse cursor is currently on
  • Wallpaper window now automatically re-sizes itself to fit on smaller resolution monitors (like netbooks)
  • Wallpaper images can now be scaled by a certain percent to enlarge or shrink the image
  • Added new options for middle-clicking taskbar buttons on the DisplayFusion taskbars

What a party! Of course, a new release wouldn't be complete without a generous helping of bug fixes as well. Let's take a look at some of the more important fixes:

  • Taskbar compatibility improvements: Stardock DeskScapes, Stardock WindowBlinds, Winamp, Microsoft Office 2007/2010
  • TitleBar Button compatibility improvements: Stardock DeskScapes, Stardock WindowBlinds, Trillian Astra, LogMeIn Hamachi, Google Chrome, Opera 10.50
  • TitleBar Buttons no longer disappear when partially hidden by another window
  • TitleBar Button glow effect is now much improved, no longer flickers (Windows 7, Vista)
  • Taskbar buttons no longer show double ampersands
  • Taskbar is correctly adjusted when another docked application is closed (no more gaps along the monitor edge)
  • Taskbar colour is now almost perfect when Windows Aero translucency is disabled
  • When a taskbar is set to auto-hide, the taskbar is now shown when a taskbar button starts flashing

I would encourage everyone to update to the new version today. If you are already a DisplayFusion Pro user, you have probably already downloaded and installed the new update automatically, because DisplayFusion Pro can do awesome things like that.

If you are using the Free version of DisplayFusion, and would like to help support the future development of DisplayFusion, please consider purchasing your very own DisplayFusion Pro license. It helps cover the cost of web hosting, bandwidth, development/testing/support time along with purchasing all of the crazy hardware needed to test DisplayFusion in different configurations.

Thanks everyone, and I hope you continue to enjoy DisplayFusion!

FileSeek 1.9.4 Released!

March 1, 2010

I am very happy to announce the release of FileSeek 1.9.4! This release is mostly a bug-fix release, and contains a number of important fixes. The biggest change is the ability to select multiple results items and use the Windows Context Menu, as long as they are in the same folder. Line numbers are no longer shown when using an IFilter search, as the line numbers returned by the IFilter handlers are unfortunately never correct. The last bug-fix allows OpenOffice documents to be properly searched using an IFilter search. For some reason OpenOffice doesn't correctly register it's IFilter components correctly, so a work-around was necessary.

I would also like to let everyone know that you can get settings for the "Open with Other Application" context menu option from here:

These settings allow you to open a search result item to a specific line number, once the "Open with Other Application" item is configured. This is very helpful for anyone working with source code files, or any other document type where being able to quickly open a document to a specific location is important.

I would encourage everyone to update to the latest version of FileSeek today. Thanks everyone!
