Process Lasso is a unique new technology intended to automatically adjust the allocation of CPU cycles so that system responsiveness is improved in high-load situations. It does this by dynamically temporarily lowering the priorities of processes that are consuming too many CPU cycles, there-by giving other processes a chance to run if they are in need. This is useful for both single and multi-core processors. No longer will a single process be able to bring your system to a virtual stall.
In addition, Process Lasso offers capabilities such as default process priorities, default process CPU affinities, termination of disallowed processes, and logging of processes executed.
Addition.GUI: Position of window and child windows is now saved at exit
and restored at re-launch.
Addition.GUI: Added 'View' menu item and 'Show Legend' option to toggle
display of graph legend.

Change.GUI: Changed 'File' menu item back to 'Actions'.
Fix.GUI: Removed some incidental debug output left in final builds
Change.UpdateChecker: Cosmetic changes.
Installer.Fix: Remembers last installed path during an upgrade/reinstall.
Installer.Fix: Added code to run gdiplus.exe or gdiplus-installer.exe, if
present in the CWD, to install gdiplus.dll. This is opposed to downloading
Installer.Addition: Added hotkey to invoke Process Lasso GUI (or show its
window)- ALT|CTRL|SHIFT|F12. Can be edited, post-install, in properties of
start menu shortcut.
Installer.Addition: Added back section to automatically show
out-of-control config dialog. Section is off by default.
Installer.Change: Moved advanced menu items to a new subfolder of process
lasso's start menu folder.
Installer.Change: Re-enabled advanced menu item section by default.
Installer.Fix: Now forcibly terminates running copies of
processsupervisor.exe and processgovernor.exe even if they are running in
other user sessions to avoid 'in-use' errors when trying to update.
Fix.Updater: Fix 'auto check' mode so it doesn't keep checking in an
infinite loop when the update check dialog is opened.
Fix.GUI.Updater: Fixed up updater invocation. Defaults to checking every
three days. Turn 'automatically check' on and it'll just notify you if an
update is available without bothering you with the dialog box otherwise.
