Older History:

Version 1.11.01 - Oct 02, 2006 - Beta

  • Improved wakeup-search on alias, so it doesn't do further search in this case.
  • Improved custom explorer/browser links to work even when there are spaces in path.
  • Improved custom explorer/browser to allow custom launch strings with parameters.
  • Improved (hopefully) some odd focus issues when working with options.

  • Fixed bug where using digit keys to launch on non-standard keyboards could result in superfluous searching. 
  • Added option to specify starting search text (useful for starting with an alias menu). 
  • Changed default startup mode to tray based (use -standalone) to exit immediately after display. 
  • Fixed bug in launching all results (Ctrl+Enter). 
  • First attempt to improve some inefficiencies in launch display speed and focus grabbing. 
  • Added experimental directory cacheing attempt (see General options) to reduce startup delay after long disuse.   



Version 1.09.04 - Mar 06, 2006
  • Fixed bug that wasn't displaying all past history items on blank startup.
  • Only keeps history of real files launched in the past (not aliases).
  • Fixed bug when changing display options while skin activated - thx jgpaiva!

Version 1.09.02 - Mar 05, 2006
  • Added a bunch of default aliases for internet searching, pasting common expressions, and more.
  • Added the the FBSL calc exe and alias (thanks to the Freestyle Basic Script Language http://www.fbsl.net/phpbb2/index.php); see http://www.donationcoder....orum/index.php?topic=2344 for more informaiton.
  • Fixed crashing bug with danish Jaws v6.0x screenreader (if anyone had any other odd shutdown crashes this might also fix)

  • Trying to remove the occasional "ding" sound on hitting enter to launch an application
  • Option to launch programs with numpad keys
  • All forms are skinned if skinning is enabled

  • Options button now directly opens options form (configure toolbar from that menu)
  • Improved speed of startup and filechecking by limiting filechecking of initial history list.

v 1.09.02 is a beta release - i expect there may be another release in near future as this version is tested.

a lot of the changes for this version are oriented to new defaults for new installs.

you can always install new versions over old, just make sure the program is exited from the system tray during install.

v1.10.02 was just uploaded.

PLEASE NOTE THIS IS AN EARLY BETA AND UPDATES MAY BE FORTHCOMING THIS WEEK, SO WAIT UNLESS YOU WANT TO HELP TEST.

It's also just a minor release - i'm reluctant to add major stuff while i'm still fighting with myself over v2 design, but i will try to tinker and experiment around the edges with farr v1 so that i don't forget about it.

I'm interested in hearing how the new v1.11.01 works for people, i hope i've improved some stuff, though we are still talking about just tweaking stuff not adding major features yet.. (i'm working my way up to it!)

There is a new option, enabled by default, that doesnt automatically free up the program working memory on minimization.  This *should* mean faster wakeups and a little bit more memory use when minimized.

I've also removed something that might have been keeping it from catching the first key pressed on startup if you are fast.

Make sure you download the BETA from the webpage if you want latest version!
