Circle Dock 0.9.2 Alpha 7.5 is Released
« on: September 02, 2008, 04:00:42 AM »
Alpha7.5NewRings.PNGCircle Dock 0.9.2 Alpha 7.5 is Released 1

  • Circle Dock 0.9.2 Alpha 7.5 is released for bug fixes.
  • Fixed the hotkey problem where you could not change the hotkeys.
  • Fixed the bug where if you set the number of key presses per rotation to 0, the dock would not load properly.
  • Included a new background image of double rings courtesy of Syllabus.
  • Language files included now are: French, English, Portuguese, and Russian. Thanks to the translators.
  • All language and settings .ini files are now encoded in unicode to enable greater support for languages with non-standard characters.


I seem to remember someone creating some new orb icons for Circle Dock but I can't remember where I read about it. If you know what I'm talking about, post a message here.

Alpha 8 should be due sometime this coming Sunday or close to it. After Alpha 8, I'll be focusing my efforts to port the code from the WinKibaDock project into Circle Dock to enable better animation and lower CPU usage. I'll be expecting that to take about 2 weeks.

How can I rename a folder of Dock? I can only create and change the icon, but I do not know how rename! :(

I'm actually coding that right now. It'll will be due out in Alpha 8, which is planned to be out sometime this Sunday. If you want to do it manually right now, you could go into the DockItemData.ini file and change the name there.

The download doesn't seem to support resume (I've tried Opera & FF Down Them All).

After some time without internet connection, I now have one that is very intermittent. Managed to get as far as 93% once, but that is no different to 0% without the ability to resume.

You,I imagined that, and had already done. I look forward to 8.
Very good and the program occupies just a memory. :up:

Whoa, nice, i'm doing new backgrounds with double rings...

Now, it's a 'Playboy' theme, for girls...

Then, i will do 'generic' themes, if you want ;)

Is there any chance the Spiral mode will be back? I actually like that more than Circle mode, although I understand that background images will be an issue.

I'll see if I can fit this in to Alpha 8. And you are correct, the background images might be an issue with a spiral dock because it's shape always changes and it is not easy to place on background behind it that fits with the shape.

I'll be releasing another minor update within the next 1-2 days with some new language files I have received. I might just delay Alpha 8 for a few days so people can try out the new language files and so I can coordinate getting all the language files updated for Alpha 8.

Thanks for the offer. I tried to post a reply twice last night, but neither actually got through and I gave up.

The download eventually made it, so everything is OK now  :)
I'm not on dial-up, though it does sometimes feel like it. Certainly my old ISDN connection felt more reliable than my broadband does now. I have only a .5MB connection because of my distance from the exchange. And the line goes down completely a few times a year. As it had over a few days over the weekend; the phone line seems to be working now but the internet connection has been slow and very intermittent. Hopefully that also has been repaired by now, though I haven't checked.
