ABAD Day 3: Support for Windows 8 Multi-monitors.
Issue180: What steps will reproduce the problem? 1. Use multiple monitors on Windows 8. 2. Change to desktop 2. 3. Secondary taskbar is gone. What is the expected output? What do you see instead? The secondary taskbar should appear on all desktops. This was an easy one to fix. Just had to add the secondary taskbar to the list of items on all desktops. Just in case anyone was wondering, the...
ABAD DAY 2: DesktiopSetup1.6b3.exe ID'ed as Adware
Issue160: This issue prevents enterprise-level installation, for prospective users in many companies that operate corporate firewalls with virus/spyware blocking. Would it be possible to offer an OpenCandy-free installer, please? Possibly as an alternative to the mainline one? To fix this situation, I have setup http://getmdesktop.com to serve a version of mDesktop excluding OpenCandy if you...
ABAD Day 1: Move currently selected window.
Issue 43: Thanks for a great app! It would be awesome if a window that you're currently dragging (i. e. moving around by keeping the mouse pressed) would follow to your chosen screen if you use Alt-#. Mac OS X does this which is really handy. Took care of this one pretty quickly as soon as I got myself re-acquainted with the mDesktop source code. Revision64
A bug a day.
Starting tomorrow, I will attempt to fix a bug a day. I’ve kinda neglected the project over the past 2 years because of the lack of money it brings in. But I’ve setup a new site (http://getmdesktop.com) to try and fix that. Hopefully in a couple of weeks we’ll have a new clean version!
It seems like the closer I get to finishing the new version of mDesktop, the further away I am. Sorry for the delay in getting 1.6 Beta 2 out. Some time this next week I’m going to stick to the roadmap and disable all of this new stuff I’ve been working on. At the very least I’ll finish the support for custom hotkeys. I’m probably going to do something like this, instead...
If you use mDesktop from the SVN, please be careful with the latest revision. (r54) In Windows Vista and 7, it can and will mess things up. Thanks.
I just want to say thanks for all of the the comments and reports. I really appreciate anyone who takes the time to a) Try my program then b) Post any bugs or features or general comments. I know it’s been a couple of weeks since any commits have been made, but that’s just because I’ve been hard at work on an oAuth library for ahk, the language mDesktop is in. I also want to...
I’m sorry for the delay in releasing version 1.6. I just finished a big project at work, and will finish it as soon as I get the issues marked finished. Thanks, Jason
