I am very happy to announce the release of DisplayFusion 3.1.9! Along with this new release, comes the new home of DisplayFusion, located at displayfusion.com. I would like to send out a big thanks to Chris from Sockit Solutions for designing the new website, and for helping getting it off the ground. The new website makes it much easier to look-up information about DisplayFusion, like the Advanced Settings, Support options and, of course, the Downloads.
Now, back to the 3.1.9 release! This release started out as a small release, intended to address a few functionality issues before the major 3.2 release, but it turned into much more than that! There is a big new feature in this release, called the "Windows Logon Background" changer. In the DisplayFusion Settings window, you will see a new tab titled "Windows Logon". You can use this new feature to change your Windows logon background image using local images, or images from one of the online providers (Flickr or Vladstudio). I love this new feature, and I've made sure all of my machines now have custom logon backgrounds.
The Taskbars also received much love. You can now set the Auto-Hide setting on a per-Taskbar basis, as well as disabling Taskbars on a per-monitor basis. The Window Snapping feature received a bit of a makeover, with the addition of a helpful guide to help you set it up in the Settings window. There also a ton, and I mean a ton, of bug fixes. From everything to Taskbar focus issues, to compatibility improvements for over a dozen applications. To see the complete list of changes, I invite you to visit the DisplayFusion Change Log.
If you haven't been prompted to upgrade yet, please visit the DisplayFusion Download page to download the new version today!

I am very happy to announce the release of ClipboardFusion 2.0.1! I received quite a bit of feedback from the 2.0 release, and to my surprise the Macro feature turned out to be more popular than I imagined it would be. As a result, I have enhanced the Macro editor substantially for this release. It now has line numbers, a re-sizable text area and code syntax highlighting. You can also now use functions in the MacroAPI namespace, and download pre-made Macros from the new Macro sharing area. Another major change is the Clipboard History feature, accessible through the system tray menu. This simple feature just stores your last used clipboard text and allows you to quickly access it. There are also a number of important bug-fixes that help to make this version the most stable release yet!
I would encourage everyone to download version 2.0.1 today to take advantage of everything ClipboardFusion has to offer. Thanks everyone!

I am very happy to announce the release of ClipboardFusion 2! This release isn't just a new version of the software, it comes complete with a new online service and a completely new website, located at clipboardfusion.com. The new online service is an optional service that allows you to share your clipboard between computers. Continue reading to find out more about the online service, as well as the other new features and improvements!
New Features and Improvements
The new ClipboardFusion 2 release comes with a couple of new features, but the existing features have also been improved as well. The Text Scrubbing feature now lets you scrub white space from the beginning and/or end of your clipboard text. There is also a new Text Scrubbing mode that requires you to double-copy some text before it is scrubbed. This way you can avoid scrubbing all the time, and you don't need to use any HotKeys or menu options.
There are now 9 HotKeys available, compared with 2 in the previous version. These HotKeys let you enable/disable ClipboardFusion features, scrub text and perform various operations with the new ClipboardFusion Online service.
Another new feature is the addition of fully programmable Macros. These Macros can be written using C# right inside the ClipboardFusion interface. If you need to manipulate your clipboard text in a way that ClipboardFusion doesn't support, just write a Macro to perform the operation. If you need help creating any Macros, just post a new topic in the ClipboardFusion Support Forum and someone will be happy to help you out.
ClipboardFusion Online is the new online service behind the ClipboardFusion 2 release. This new service allows you to share your clipboard with other computers, and soon your mobile devices as well. Sync your clipboard items with the online service, then you have access to them anywhere you are. It is an optional service that is free to use for 2 months, and I would encourage everyone to give it a try. It is completely free to try out, with no obligation to purchase.
Even if you don't intend to use the new online service, there are a ton of bug fixes that should benefit everyone. I would encourage everyone to update to the new version today and take control of your clipboard!

I am very happy to announce the release of FileSeek 1.9.7! I received some excellent suggestions from a few different people after the 1.9.6 release, and this new release is the result of those ideas. There are also a couple of small bug fixes as well, which are detailed in the change log. Here is a quick list of the things that have changed in this release:
If you would like to see the complete list of changes, please visit the FileSeek Change Log. I would encourage everyone to update to version 1.9.7 to take advantage of these new features. Thanks everyone!

If you've ever had to write any interop code to use an unmanaged library in your C# application, you know how tricky it can be to get the data types correct. I often find myself scouring the internet looking for the correct conversions, so I thought I would document everything I have learned so far. This is by no means a comprehensive list of all C++ data types, just the ones I find myself frequently writing interop code for.
If I am missing something, or you would like me to include something else, please let me know in the comments below. Thanks!

I am very happy to announce the release of FileSeek 1.9.6! I don't normally release new versions so close together, but an important issue was brought to my attention that couldn't wait until the next scheduled release date. This new version fixes a major issue with folder name matching when using the "include files filter". It should now work as expected, without skipping any folders. I also took this opportunity to include a couple of new features as well. The results list now shows each file's correct icon, instead of a generic icon. To make multiple-folder searches easier, there is now a "Browse & Append" button on the main window. If you use this button, the folder you select will be appended to your search path instead of replacing it.
If you would like to see the complete list of changes, please visit the FileSeek Change Log. I would encourage everyone to update to version 1.9.6 as soon as possible so that folder searching will start working as expected. Thanks everyone!

I am very happy to announce the release of FileSeek 1.9.5! This release adds a few requested options, as well as fixing some minor interface glitches. The biggest change is the addition of an option to toggle sub-folder searching. Now you can choose whether to search only the selected folder, or the folder and all sub-folders. Also, the FileSeek window will now remember it's last position and state between uses. This should make it much easier for anyone who frequently opens and closes FileSeek and has to keep moving the window around. To see the complete list of changes, please visit the FileSeek Change Log. Thanks everyone!
