Process Lasso 3.59.2 Beta

Posted on Monday, April 27 2009 @ 16:47:47 CEST by

Process Lasso is a unique new technology that will, amongst other things, improve your PC's responsiveness and stability. Windows, by design, allows programs to monopolize your CPU without restraint -- leading to freezes and hangs. Process Lasso's ProBalance technology intelligently adjusts the priority of running programs so that badly behaved programs won't interfere with your ability to use the computer!

  • Addition.Core: Added CPU throttling (both persistent and temporary). This applies a hard limit on the CPU time a process can consume. This is not meant to replace ProBalance and should be used only in certain, appropriate situations.
  • Addition.Core: Added ability to exclude specific processes from foreground boosting.
  • Addition.Core: Added automatic game mode entry for user specified processes.
  • Addition.GUI: Added UI support for excluding processes from foreground boosting.
  • Addition.GUI: Added UI support for CPU throttling.
  • Addition.GUI: Added ability to suspend and resume processes.
  • Addition.GUI: The system tray icon now will change to a special icon when the governor is inactive.
  • Addition.GUI: Added thread count column.
  • Addition.GUI: Added handle count column.
  • Addition.GUI: Added application name column.
  • Addition.GUI: Added page faults and page faults delta column.
  • Addition.GUI: Added thread management tab.
  • Addition.GUI: Added 'cancel' button to 'shutdown governor too' message box, allowing to abort the close of the GUI.
  • Addition.GUI: Added minimum time for restraint parameter to ProBalance configuration dialog.
  • Addition.GUI: Added maximum time for restraint parameter to ProBalance configuration dialog.
  • Addition.GUI: Added UI support for automatic game mode entry for user specified processes.
  • Addition.Installer: On upgrades, added message box asking if user wants to skip install wizard.
  • Change.Installer: Added warning that non-English languages may not be current.
  • Change.Installer: Merged 'Advanced shortcuts' section into 'Create shortcuts' section.
  • Change.Installer: Updated to NSIS 2.42.5 unicode.
  • Change.InstallHelper: Rewording of rights selection (for each isntance to manage processes of all users or not).
  • Change.InstallHelper: Cosmetic adjusments.
  • Change.GUI: Other tweaks and optimizations.
  • Change.GUI: Tweaks to process context submenu ordering (standardized).
  • Change.GUI: The warning message when the governor isn't running will not be shown continuously, instead of intermittently.
  • Change.GUI: Tweaks to default column sizes.
  • Change.GUI: A considerable amount of other tweaks and optimizations.
  • Change.GUI: Increased refresh/poll speeds.
  • Change.Core: Major internal overhaul to minimize complexity and maximize efficiency.
  • Change.Core: Tweaked default ProBalance parameters.
  • Change.Core: Added milliseconds to log times.
  • Change.Core: A considerable amount of other tweaks and optimizations.
  • Change.Core: Added more hard coded exclusions for popular applications that should be excluded from ProBalance restraint.
  • Change.Core: Made extensive changes to the ProBalance algorithm.
  • Change.Core: Increased refresh/poll speeds.
  • Change.Licensing: Reduce nag annoyance.
  • Change.Licensing: Nag shown at 30 days instead of 14.
  • Fix.GUI: Improved accuracy of system responsiveness calculation. You can now more clearly see the effects of ProBalance.
  • Fix.TestLasso: Better command line argument handlng (now backported to last final release).
  • Fix.TestLasso: Fix continuous mode, as it wasn't actually consuming all available CPU cycles in some cases (now backported to last final release).
