« on: March 23, 2010, 08:52 AM »
The newest version of the application launcher SliderDock is now out.


A lot have been improved.
First the version system have been change to enable update check.
Now there is a new button in the "about SliderDock" window that allow you to check for new versions.

The portable mode has been improved.
When SliderDock is in portable mode and is found on a memory stick with your other portable applications on the same drive, dragging those apps into SliderDock will give them a relative target path.
This will allow SliderDock to launch your portable applications even when the memory stick drive letter changes.

Another new feature is the integration of multi rings feature.
Now it is possible to group the icons anyway you wish.
And selecting a new ring is done with a click on thee middle mouse button on the IconSeeker.

here are all the changes in  SliderDock v1.15 :

  • added relative path for icon's target.
  • improved installation setup. It will now check if .net is found in the computer and download it if it's missing.
  • improved the uninstall setup which now remove the registry entry for starting SliderDock with window.
  • improved support for virtual folder even further. Now all virtual folder should work.
  • added support for microsoft special shortcut(ex: MS office shortcut).
  • added support for shortcut which have a virtual folder as a target.
  • improved mouse event so that using the mouse wheel to rotate the icons will not affect other application anymore.
  • change versioning system for update support.
  • added check update button in the "About SliderDock" window.
  • added multiple rings support.
  • adding an icon to a ring will now make it appear within the IconSeeker next to the current selected icon.
  • improved icon saving method to stop the image quality from degrading each time it's loaded.
  • Changed saving path to Data folder(for the SD.ini and when in portable mode for the files config.xml and save.bin)
  • ErrorLog will now also appear in the Data folder.
  • Remove the dependancy to Interop.IWshRuntimeLibrary.dll and also remove the file from the setup.
  • removed support for virtual desktop because SliderDock freeze after launching some specific fullscreen app.
  • slightly slow down the rotation with the mouse wheel depending of the icon distance to the IconSeeker to increase the feeling of smooth transition.

General Software Discussion / SliderDock R14 released

I'm looking for beta tester for the latest version of SliderDock.
the beta is a zip file, and SliderDock will be in portable mode by default.
So no installation and it will work and save within it's own folder.(with the exception of the option "Load SliderDock at startup" which IF checked will write a line in the registry, but once unchecked will remove this line).

edit : the beta has ended now. If you wish to know more about this software or the new version please visit the website :

SliderDock is a dock that is in the shape of a 3D wheel.
Unlike other dock's the rotation animation isn't just a gimmick but one of the main feature of this application.
By having one main Icon area be the focal point, SliderDock allow you to change easily the icon through the use of the wheel mouse.
This was especially refined to feel very responsive and natural, plus it is fun to use.

Of course SliderDock also include many other features such as :
  • simple drag and drop support to add an icon
  • the possibility to use custom images to change completely the look so that it fit your preferences.
  • low memory usage when not in use
  • ability to hide and recall it with the use of a keyboard shortcut
and many more.

Give it a try.
