Release Notes

First uses in a real production environment has been appreciated by early users. Some bugs have been fixed, and one major cool feature has been added: managed shortcuts. Managed shortcuts are shortcuts that have been created with SmartLauncher (via Drag and Drop) and automatically integrates the update of the target application.

I also worked on the rebranding of SmartLauncher: you can now hide the original AboutBox, change the icon, add a help file, etc... Without having to recompile the application!

The latest important feature is the self update engine: this is a mecanisme to update SmartLauncher itselfs.

Here is the complete list of changes:
  • New features:
    • Drag & drop items onto the desktop (or other) creates a shortcut + setting to allow shortcut
    • Self-Update engine
    • Start menu item in the popup of the system tray
    • Single Instance, also restore the previous window (only if not moved into the system tray)
    • Help files can be defined
    • Now possible to hide the AboutBox
    • History in the About box
    • Date and Time in the status bar
    • File size in the views
  • Updated features:
    • When the icon name is preceeded with "extern:", an external icon is loaded.
    • Look and feel of the main screen has been reviewed
    • In the list view, the whole row is selected
  • Bug fixed:
    • Folders with spaces were not supported
    • Bug in MRU management when more than 10 files were started
    • Applications were started twice
    • When started minimized, there was no icon is the taskbar
    • Tool- and Statusbar visibility was set to false when SmartLauncher was shut down minimized
    • When LogEnabled=True and UpdateOnLaunch=True, an error is thrown when instanciating the log file (opening it while already opened)
    • Possible error when creating duplicate shortcuts
