  • NEW: Keyboard navigation for RSS feeds: You can now use the keyboard to show the workspace and then browse through the various news feeds and headlines:
    * Open a specific news feed by entering the feed's name.
    * Use the spacebar button to open the next feed and Shift+Space to open the previous one.
    * [F5] to refresh the feed.
    * Key Down and Key Up to select headlines.
    * View feed items by using the Enter key (open on the site or with the RSS Viewer).
  • NEW: Right clicking a container allows you to quickly start shortcuts from inside using the new Container Shortcuts menu (also work with Folded and Shrunken containers). This is a great way to quickly launch shortcuts.
  • NEW: Clicking the lock button that appears when trying to move containers and shortcuts when the workspace is locked for editing, will now unlock the workspace for 10 seconds before locking it again ('lock.wav' found in the program's directory will be played). This replaces the previous behavior and allows you to quickly make changes even when the workspace is locked.
  • NEW: When trying to move or resize locked containers, or shortcuts inside locked containers, the container border will flash in red, in addition to showing the 'lock button'.
  • NEW: Menu option to hide Folder Link buttons in case you do not use that feature anymore, even when you currently have some containers set as folder links.
  • NEW: Menu option to hide container note buttons.
  • NEW: Redesigned tooltips for RSS news feeds: Some misc. GUI changes and the headline is now displayed using bold font above the description. Tooltips are also visible when using the keyboard to select headlines.
  • NEW: Selected font name and size is visible inside the Properties dialog [F4].
  • NEW: Added a Loading label when refreshing an RSS news feed.
  • NEW: New theme: Claws
  • NEW: New wallpaper: BlueFade.jpg
  • CHANGE: Important change to the way RSS feeds are loaded: The feeds are now downloaded asynchronously (non-blocking). You can load different news feeds while waiting for others to finish. In addition to that, the workspace remains responsive when refreshing all RSS feeds using the menu command or pressing [F11].
  • CHANGE: The workspace will unhide (undock) like other windows/toolbars. You can click the edge of the screen to quickly show the workspace, or hover with the mouse for half a second over the workspace border without moving it away.
  • CHANGE: [F5] is now used to refresh news feeds and <Shift>+<F5> is used to refresh shortcuts.
  • CHANGE: Removed menu command Delay before undock.
  • CHANGE: Removed menu command Collapse before launch (the workspace will always collapse before launching a shortcut).
  • CHANGE: Many changes to the main container menu when clicking the container label, inside a container or a shrunken one. To add new shortcuts to containers, either drag shortcuts to the container from the Windows Explorer or create new shortcuts on the workspace and drag them from there.
  • CHANGE: Faster startup speed.
  • CHANGE: New Plastic Gray theme (removed older Plastic Gray buttons).
  • CHANGE: Removed wallpaper: Bluesteps.jpg
  • CHANGE: Some container menu items are now still accessible even when the workspace is locked.
  • CHANGE: When selecting all shortcuts within a folded or a shrunken container it will unfold or expand. Select using <Ctrl>+<A> or the Containers Shortcuts >> Select all menu command.
  • CHANGE: The container Rename command will expand shrunken containers.
  • CHANGE: Ability to resize folded containers is no longer available: This may produce unexpected results.
  • CHANGE: Resizing containers is now limited by minimum height and width. The container border will flash in red when resized to a value smaller than the minimum.
  • FIX: Single click to start shortcuts also works in detached containers (when the the Dbl-click to start menu option is unchecked).
  • FIX: Resizing shortcuts with Ctrl + Mouse Wheel was still possible even when the workspace was locked.
  • FIX: Fixed a bug when closing detached containers.
  • FIX: Mouse pointer flickered when the mouse hovered over a shortcut while using single click to start shortcuts.
  • FIX: Some fixes for dragging shortcuts to folded and shrunken containers.
  • FIX: The container is selected when the refresh button is pressed.
  • FIX: Last update label color was not changed when changing the workspace colors.
  • FIX: Bug that caused a shrunken group not to expand properly.
  • FIX: Shrink/Expand all main toolbar command also affected folded containers and not just shrunken ones.
  • FIX: When Dbl-Clicking a folded container to start a shortcut, the container may not fold back when the workspace collapses.
  • Many other small changes and improvements.
