Changes 2.0 to 2.0.1

  • Publish Meazure as an Open Source project on GitHub under the GNU General Public License.

  • Windows 98, ME, NT and 2000 are no longer supported.

Changes 1.0 to 2.0

  • Feature: A log of tool positions can be recorded and saved. The position log can be reloaded and played back. The position log file is in XML and the DTD is distributed with the program and is also available from the C Thing Software website.

  • Feature: An Angle tool has been added. Using this tool, arbitrarily oriented angles can be measured.

  • Feature: A Circle tool has been added. Using this tool, a circular area can be measured.

  • Feature: The user can define their own set of units.

  • Feature: Multiple monitor desktop configurations are now fully supported.

  • Feature: The rulers can now be dragged across the screen.

  • Feature: On Windows 2000 and above, the opacity can be set on the rulers, crosshairs and data windows.

  • Feature: The origin of the coordinate system is now indicated by a marker.

  • Feature: Additional color spaces are available for expressing the color value of a pixel. In addition, a text field is used to display the color so that the color value can be copied to the clipboard.

  • Feature: Angles can now be reported in degrees or radians.

  • Feature: The number of decimal places displayed for each measurement in each system of units can now be specified as a preference.

  • Feature: Tool crosshairs can now be toggled between visible and hidden to aid in measuring small objects.

  • Feature: There are now menu items for zooming the magnifier in and out.

  • Feature: Resolution calibration can now be done in metric as well as english units.

  • Feature: A master reset is now provided to restore the factory default settings.

  • Feature: Windows XP display themes are now supported.

  • Fix: A red rectangle no longer remains when changing to another tool from the Window Tool using the Tools menu.

  • Fix: Certain screen appearance schemes (e.g. Eggplant) would cause the menu to wrap to two lines thereby partially obscuring the magnifier zoom slider. This has been corrected.

  • Fix: When copying a screen region the tool outline and crosshairs were sometimes captured with the image. This has been corrected.

  • Windows 95 is no longer supported.

Known Issues

  • On Windows XP (all versions) the display of the crosshair tooltip (e.g. "Point 1") is intermittent due to a problem with version 6 of the Microsoft comctl32.dll.
