Arlo Rose and Perry Clarke’s popular widget utility Konfabulator has just been updated with a reduction in its processor usage and improved monitor configuration adjustments. For a full list of changes in this update, read on…
Updated in the version:
- Reduced memory footprint in Task Manager.
- Upgraded the URL object to support POSTing, outputting to a file and returning the HTTP response code (documented fully in the Release Notes).
- Made the Below window level stick to the desktop when choosing Show Desktop from the Task Bar.
- Now reacts properly to monitor configuration changes and move widgets appropriately. Also remembers where they were per screen config.
- Now stores unzipped widgets in the local app data folder, not the system’s temporary folder. This avoids the problems people experience when running temp file cleaners, essentially wiping out all the support files for a running widget.
- Fixed problem where click-through was not working. This meant you had to click twice if a widget was not already active.
- Redid CPU monitoring code to avoid issues with performance counters. It should work on all machines now.
- Attempted to solve the occasional spontaneous unregistering issue. If you do become unregistered after installing this release, enter your registration again. An alternate solution is in place, so if you re-register, it will do it a bit differently and will hopefully be permanent.
- Added automatic check for updates, with ability to ‘skip’ a version.
