The Taskbars Awaken

@ethanhs ethanhs released this Jun 5, 2017 · 5 commits to master since this release

After a long hiatus, we have released a new version. This version comes with several new features:

  • Dynamic Start (different states when start is open/closed)
  • Improved Virtual Desktop support
  • Dynamic Windows (different states when a Window is maximized or desktop is shown, this is in Preview)
  • More tray options
  • Optional tray
  • Start with Windows (tray and command line option)
  • Elegant exiting

All of the above changes have kept processor usage and RAM usage roughly the same as previous releases.

Please read Known issues and already filed bug reports before opening a new issue. If you don't have a Github account, and don't want to make one, you can also email me ‮.em.shnahte@nahte
‭ Please file issues here though, I'd prefer not to be swamped with emails. Thanks.

Thanks so much to @charlesmilette, @denosawr, @MrAksel, and @ghost1372 for contributing! This release would not have happened without them.

Please note: you must manually stop the previous running TranslucentTB before starting the new version. This will be the only time that is needed. You may also want to update the references to startup executables you made.

If you have any questions, feel free to chat with us on Gitter, or Discord.



Return of the Monitors

Thanks everyone for the awesome feedback and contributions!

This version adds several new features:

  • multi monitor support
  • command line options
  • clear taskbar option
  • colorful taskbar option
  • unicode support.

These changes keep RAM usage under 2MB in my tests, and CPU usage still near 0%. I also did a battery test and found no significant change in runtime with the program running and without.

Also, thanks to eveyone who contributed, I cannot thank you enough!

You can download by clicking below on, or clicking here (direct download!).

Please see known issues before filing a bug report. Thanks!

Please also note that you must open start to reset the taskbar if you exit.

This is actually not the first version, It uses a clear taskbar instead of the older translucent one.
