-Information about Hack-It v4.0 RC2
-----------------------------------
-Standard Request for Suggestions:
- I want any and all suggestions you guys have. This program is basically made
- for you, and I want it to have all the features and information you want in
- it. Let me know what features you think I should add, and any information you
- want to submit to the help file. It will help my efforts immensely, and maybe
- get you a little credit on the side.
-
-Request for Bug Reports:
- As always, since this is a prerelease I request that you
- send any bug reports you have directly to me. If something goes screwy, let
- me know what you were doing and what version of Hack-It, Windows, and possibly
- Internet Explorer you were using when it happened. If Hack-It crashes, try to
- send me the details of the error.
-
-Ok, now to the nitty-gritty of the application.
-
-Summary of RC2:
- Beta 11 was a definite improvement over Beta 10. RC2 blows it away.
- List refreshing has been rehashed and sped up. Automatic functions run much
- faster and require fewer resources. Transparency is support in the functions,
- system menu options, and automatic functions. Illegal windows are matched
- more like automatic functions match. Stability, reliability, and performance
- are all improved.
-
-Changes since RC1:
- - Cleaned up visual artifacts on window list settings tab
- - Reinstated threaded list refreshing
- - Improved list management-related message passing to prevent lockups
- - Improved icon querying
-
-Known Bugs:
- - I have not tested Hack-It very much under anything othey than Windows 2000.
- I will be doing more testing under several versions of Windows before the
- full release.
- - Very very rarely, items will be added to the list with no icon at all. I
- haven't seen this happen in quite some time, so it might have been fixed
- incidentally
-
-Future Feature Map:
-Hack-It v4.0:
- - No more features are planned for the 4.0 line. The full release will occur
- sometime in September 2001. Any major fixes that take place will occur as
- minor revisions to the 4.0 version.
-Hack-It v5.0:
- - COM/DCOM support. Hack-It will become a COM application for v5.0, and will
- have numerous plug-in and component interfaces. In addition, the core parts
- of Hack-It will become a base COM component, and the UI and other pieces
- will simply use this component service. *Under NT there will be a Hack-It
- service that can be used at a system level to offer a new level of control
- over systems.
- - Scripting support for all window functions the system supports, using
- ActiveX Scripting Engines. Currently I know of Scripting Engines for Perl,
- VBScript, and JScript. These languages are far more complete than anything
- I might hack together, and will suit this application better.
- - Plug-in support for other window functions and utilities. Hack-It will be
- made into a COM component that other developers can use to add Window
- Manipulation and Control (WMC) features to their applications. Hack-It will
- be distributed as a core Component that handles the internals of the
- Hack-It architecture, along with a sample implementation (What you see as
- Hack-It now).
- - A name change is likely. The word "Hack" inspires much fear, uncertainty,
- and doubt, and I'm tired of recieving email asking if I can "Hack the
- Windows NT Kernel".
-
-Other Future Plans:
- - Hack-It for Linux! In some form, I will be porting many of the features of
- Hack-It to Linux (and possible in such a way as to be portable across
- many *NIX's). Let me know what you would like to see in a Linux port.
- - Hack-It for WindowsCE!
- - Online Registration
- - The Hack-It Window Manipulation and Control Platform for Windows, Linux,
- and beyond.
-
-Registration:
- The Shareware version of Hack-It does not save any settings, but is otherwise
- uncrippled. The PRO version saves all settings to the registry. The
- cost of registration has been dropped again, as an apology for my neglect of
- Hack-It for so long. $15 will make you a registered user for life - in other
- words, once you register, you are entitled to PRO versions of Hack-It
- forever. Pretty sweet deal, don't you think?
