================================================================================ Wallpaper Randomizer 0.40 System Tray Wallpaper Changer Danny Ben Shitrit (Sector-Seven) 2011 Homepage: http://sector-seven.net Email : firstname.lastname@example.org Contributors: Ashus - http://ashus.ashus.net/ License: MIT ================================================================================ Introduction ----------------------------- Wallpaper Randomizer is a small system tray wallpaper changer. It lets you: • See a different wallpaper whenever you start Windows. • Change wallpaper on regular intervals. • Change wallpaper using a hotkey. When running it for the first time, you will be prompted to specify where is your photos or wallpapers directory. Wallpaper Randomizer is completely unobstrusive. It requires no installation, has no user interface and does not write anything in the registry - All functions are controlled through the system tray menu. You can enable or disable Walllpaper Randomizer at any time. Supported image formats: BMP, PNG, JPG and GIF. Technical Notes ----------------------------- Wallpaper Randomizer uses the ToPNG command line utility (http://www.bcheck.net/) which is included in the downloaded package.

Fixed : BMP wallpapers were not handled properly. 0.33 2009 09 08 Changed: topng.exe is no longer compiled into the executable, instead it is provided as is in the ZIP file. Some Vista users reported the automatic extraction did not work. 0.32 2009 09 04 Fixed : Random order of wallpapers is now more random. Changed: Recompiled with newer AutoHotkey version. 0.31 2009 03 12 Fixed : Startup shortcut did not work when OS language was not English. 0.30 2009 01 04 Removed: Installer Removed: Open INI from tray menu Added : Run on Startup menu option 0.22 2008 12 25 Removed: LiveUpdate Changed: Installer to Young Added : Open INI file in the menu Added : Select primary folder in the menu Added : Now asking for a folder on first run 0.20 2007 02 18 Fixed : unexpected behaviour, probably caused by unstable AutoHotkey build - no change was done in the code, but this version is compiled with AHK 1.0.46 instead of 1.0.46.08 0.19 2007 02 01 Added : Shift+Win+F5 shortcut for Previous Wallpaper 0.18 2007 01 31 Changed: wallpapers are now stored in a random order and are displayed sequentially, as opposed to just generate a random wallpaper from a list. this prevents the same wallpaper to appear twice, unless the entire list was displayed already. 0.17 2007 01 14 Added : the state of the Pause option is now stored in the INI file. this is useful if you only want Wallpaper Randomizer to change your wallpaper upon system start. You may still unpause it, or use the Refresh Now option to change the wallpaper.
