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.
Fix.GUI: Fixed 'Save' button in default CPU affinities dialog having no
effect. Right-clicking processes to add default affinities worked fine
though, users of v2.90 should use that mechanism instead, or upgrade to this
Fix.Core: Removed hard limits on the size of lists (such as default
priorities) in the configuration INI file.
Fix.Core: Now restores priority of a restrained background process when it
becomes foreground, if foreground processes are excluded from restraint. The
log entry and balloon text will differ from standard restores (if you've set
PL to log restorations).
Fix.Core: Fixed possible problem with disallowed processed based on
pathname (optional feature).
Fix.GUI: Fixed errant balloon text on process restraint (it said process
priority was restored). This was a localization mishap, strings got confused
in a copy/paste operation.
Fix.GUI: Fixed 'Open folder' option, which quit working in v2.90, or
Addition.GUI: Added 'forced mode' setting within default priorities
dialog, for convienence. It is still in the options menu too.
Addition.GUI: Added 'do not start at login' to 'Options / General settings
/ Process Lasso startup'.
Change.Core/GUI: Reduced RAM usage even further. The more processes you
have running, the more pronounced the RAM savings will be.
Change.Core/GUI: Optimized stack use to reduce RAM consumption.
Change.Core: Added more sanity checking to the configuration file, which
will prevent crashes in some cases where the user made certain syntax errors
in the default priorities or affinities.
Change.Core: Default process priority settings in the configuration file
can now be in your native language, or in English. They must be exact in
their name though.
Change.Core: Some error messages were moved to localizable resources.
Change.GUI: Adjusted 'Options / General settings / Process Lasso startup'
menu structure (removed a submenu).
Change.GUI: Updated Russian translation.
Change.GUI: Updated Polish translation.
Change.GUI: Moved start types 'All users' and 'Current user' to
Change.GUI: Reworked image list code to avoid problems at low color
depths, or other issues.
Change.All: All Process Lasso executables are trimmed (PETrim) now.
Change.Core/GUI/InstallHelper: Reworked and consolidated localization
Change.LocalizationPack: Renamed graph legend bitmap from bmp00001.bmp to
Change.Installer: Updated to NSIS v2.37.
Change.Installer: Switched to MUI2.
Change.Installer: Other changes, and added Polish language (note:
selection may not be working as of beta 2).
Change.Installer: Localization files (for translators) installed by
default for now, may switch back before final. This is to reduce confusion
about where these files are.
Change.Installer(x64): File system redirection is now disabled, as it
should be so PL isn't treated like a 32-bit app and installed in the WoW
directories. Other than the default install path being wrong, it had no
