Buckle up: Major reworks incoming!

  • WinMute now mutes all audio endpoints and not just the default endpoint.
    It also stores all endpoint states and restores them if the appropriateoption is set.
  • Reworked mute detection logic. This should fix timing errors, e.g. when screensaver with screenlock is active and the display goes into standby.
  • WinMute can now mute your computer when it is connected (alternatively when it is not connected) to a particular wireless network.
  • Added detection for display standby
  • Added detection for RDP sessions
  • Added autostart option (no more fiddling with the Startup-folder)
  • Added Hi-DPI awareness
  • Added tray icon for bright system theme
  • UI Rework (New settings and about dialog)
  • Various fixes and improvements
  • Tried to add a setup! (Maybe switching to InnoSetup in the future, this is the fairly basic Visual Studio one)
  • Updated project to VS 2022 (Please re-check your Visual Studio dependency)

This fixes two bigger issues with the 1.9.9 release:

  • Fixed auto-start issue with WinMute, when using the new "run on startup" option.
  • Fixed error message when not selecting "run on startup" in settings dialog.
  • Reduced file size by 130kb by not using std::format (wt...?)

Pre-release

This version has been replaced by 1.9.9.1 as it contains a bug when using the new autostart feature. Please use 1.9.9.1 instead: https://github.com/lx-s/WinMute/releases/tag/1.9.9.1⚠️


WinMute 1.9.9 is the beta-version for a new 2.0-release.

This version contains substantial fixes and changes, that should hopefully fix all timing issues with various mute configurations users had with old WinMute versions.

Changelog (beta):

  • Reworked mute detection. This should fix all timing errors. E. g. The screensaver with screenlock is active, and the display goes into suspend during that time.
  • All audio endpoints are now muted instead of just the current default endpoint. WinMute also stores all endpoint states and restores them if the appropriate option is set.
  • Added autostart option (no more fiddling with the startup folder)
  • Added Hi-DPI Awareness
  • Added Tray-Icon for bright system theme
  • Added detection for display standby
  • Some dialogs have seen some fresh paint
  • Updated project to VS 2022

WinMute 1.6.0 removes its 32-Bit version, fixes screensaver detection and adds new feature: Quiet Hours (thanks for the suggestion to @DasWookie).

In Detail:

  • New Feature: Quiet Hours let's you choose a time frame, where WinMute automatically mutes your workstations an unmutes it afterwards.
  • Fix: Screensaver detection was up until now limited to the bitness of WinMute: The 64-bit version only got notified by Windows that a screensaver started when the current foreground application was a 64-bit process and vice versa for 32 bit. WinMute 1.6.0 adds a 32-bit proxy application, so that it can detect a screensaver start regardless fo the bitness of the foreground application. Because of this WinMute no longer includes a 32-bit version.
  • Fix: WinMute now better handles the use-case when you are using the secure screensaver setting, that locks your PC when you return.

WinMute 1.5.0 adds new options to mute your Windows-PC on shutdown, logoff or suspend (thanks @zhudock for the suggestion).
This should come in handy, when waking the laptop for a presentation, but a youtube video is still running in browser ;).

Note that WinMute does not automatically restore the audio volume after reboot, logon or wake-up, as this would defeat the purpose.

The "big thing" about this release are probably that WinMute is build with Visual C++ 2019s current spectre migitations. Otherwise the changes are purely cosmetic.

Changelog:

  • Compiled with spectre migitations... just 'cause
  • Added "Support"-Link to About dialog
  • Small menu redesign.
