I recommend all Circle Dock 0.9.2 Alpha 7 users to upgrade to Alpha 8 because of all the bug fixes and some new features added. Alpha 8 includes some new language files and backgrounds thanks to the people listed on http://circledock.wikidot.com/credit-list. Visit the Circle Dock homepage to see examples of the new backgrounds: http://circledock.wikidot.com

Please note that there is a new recommended way of upgrading from Alpha 7 to Alpha 8. Please see the information at http://circledock.wikidot.com/how-to-upgrade. It is important you follow the instructions listed there or the program may not start properly and give you an error message.

Note that some language files are not up to date. They will still load but you will get "?????" in place of missing translations.

From the Change Log:
Quote
September 14th, 2008

  • Circle Dock 0.9.2 Alpha 8 Official Release is made available.
  • Many bug fixes and some new features added.
  • There is a new recommended way of upgrading to Alpha 8 - see How to Upgrade
  • Added the ability to run multiple docks at the same time by allowing multiple Circle Dock instances to run from separate folders.
  • Circle Dock will now seek the target file for shortcuts dropped onto the dock.
  • Added ability to lock the dock at a specific position (Settings Panel -> Location).
  • The .ini file reader for Circle Dock is now unicode compatible with non-western script characters. This solves the problem of garbled language files.
  • There are new language files included, such as Chinese, Indonesian, and Hungarian. Some language files have not been updated. Missing translations will show up in Circle Dock as "?????".
  • New circular backgrounds are included.
  • Added an "Item Properties" panel for each dock item to allow you to edit the link properties.
  • Added an option in the right-click menu for the centre object, background, and the tray icon to temporarily pause the mouse toggling for gamers or other people that need it.
  • The screen edge toggling has been improved. Circle Dock won't toggle the visibility if you are holding a mouse button down near the screen edges. There is also a new option for the dwell time required.
  • The "Toggling" and "File -> Icon Associations" panels in the "Settings Panel" have been simplified.
  • Added ability to turn off labels.
  • Added a new format to the circle shape option in Settings Panel - Dock Shape (maximum number of items that can be fit on a circle without overlap).
  • Added option to use the same rotation angle for all dock folders under Settings Panel -> General.
  • Added a numeric box to finely adjust the rotation angle of the dock under Settings Panel -> General.
  • Added a "Portability Mode" option to Settings Panel -> General. With this option selected, Circle Dock will automatically try to find the links of the dock item by using the drive letter of the Circle Dock directory. This is meant for USB thumbdrive usage where the drive letters may change but you want Circle Dock to self-reference files.
  • Added a "Always on Bottom" option to Settings Panel -> General. Note that this mode is not fully completed since there are a few bugs to be worked out. Mostly there is a flickering issue. It is recommended to use the "Topmost" or "Normal" modes for the z-level.

The links are all working for me. Maybe it's your internet service provider or firewall blocking it?

Try: http://circledock.wikidot...lpha8_OfficialRelease.zip for the direct link. Also, to carry over your current settings, copy over your System -> Settings folder into the new Circle Dock directory.

This is good, going to set it up for general use for sure.
What I would like to be able to do is to set up the rings with app groups (Adobe Creative Suite ring, Microsoft Office ring, Games ring etc.) how could this be done (as there are differing quantities in each group).
Cheers Cool

There isn't any ring grouping that can be done right now. However, you can move the icons from spot to spot by dragging and dropping them over each other. Right now, the circle shape is designed to fill the centre first and then go outwards.

Those are referenced by CSLID's which I cannot figure out how to get from a drag and drop operation. The recommended method for these types of links is to create an actual Windows shortcut to them and then add these shortcuts to Circle Dock.

That is weird, I'm getting a sustained download speed of 260 kb/sec on my end, which is quite fast. I'm using both IE and Google Chrome. Maybe you should wait until tomorrow for Wikidot's servers to propagate the files through their system so it's closer to your location.

Anyone else having download problems?

Sweet!  Kiss This is the best pop launcher I've ever seen!  Keep up the great work.  I would like the option to keep the program/folder names visible though...

Oh, noob question: How do you get two rings of icons?

Hey people smiley

I dicovered CD today and played a little with alpha8, and I found somme suffestions for future improvements maybe :

- on my mouse (logitech mx 500) / vista 64 with no mouseware (I.E. using microsoft regular drivers), CD thinks that buttons Xbutton1 and Xbutton2 are the same (whereas firefox doesn't)

- under "normal" window behavior, toggling visibility (for exemple moving the mouse to the edge) does NOT show CD if it is under other windows, you have to go to the border a second time to show CD above the other windows ... could it possibly bring the window to front if it is not, the first time I toggle visibility ? (I set CD not to disappear when a file is clicked)

- could there be an option to lock CD content ? it would prevent accidental drag'n'drop to the center of the dock

Added to other suggestions I've seen in the alpha7 discussion, that's it, rocking app !!! smiley

edit : is that just on my system, or CD does not remember the positition where it was shut off ?

Hi
As a total newbie to CD, I apologise if I have put this question in the wrong section and also if the question sounds silly but I looked for somewhere to ask and this seemed appropriate, although it probably isn't?

Could sombody please help with telling me how (and where they are) I put the 'target' into the icon settings options please, so that when I click the icon, it opens up the program, website etc., that I want to use? I have used ObjectDock a couple of times and think that was easier to get the target as you just had to copy and paste the target for wherever it was into the ObjectDock Icon settings. I can see that in the 'target' settings, it has numbers and dashes (0- 19- ex) but as a total divvy, I am afraid I don't know or understand what this means? Again, sorry to be the proverbial pain but if you don't ask, you will never find out - apparently? Thanks in advance for any assistance. embarassed tellme Thmbsup

Hello, welcome to Donation Coder. Based on the fact that you see numbers in the "Target" field of the item settings panel, it means that you have right-clicked on a dock folder which is special and you cannot modify the target of a dock folder your self. You can add items to the dock  by drag and dropping their icons onto it (virtual folders like My Computer, My Documents need Windows shortcuts created first). The other way is to right click on the dock and go Add -> Blank Icon and then you can edit the target field or click the browse buttons.

Hello, Welcome!

It is possible for me to allow all the program names to be shown but when I tried that out during coding, it looked very messy in a dock so I left the option to always make the labels visible out.

You will automatically get concentric rings of icons if you have lots of icons on the dock. To set the number of icons per circle, go to Settings -> Dock Shape. The backgrounds for the double rings are in the Circle Dock folder under System -> Background.
