Version 0.54 beta 2 | Release Date: 2007-01-10 | Download

Always remember to back-up your VirtueDesktops preferences before running any beta version.

Changes

  • The about window should show up when you select the menu now;
  • Lots of memory leaks have been fixed;
  • The application inspector should report all standard applications, including non-bundled applications like the Microsoft Office suite;
  • Sticky windows should be more reliable;
  • The auto-update address has been updated to the (ugly, but working) new address;

Known issues

  • Localisation is still spotty. As I've said before, this will be fixed closer to release;
  • CPU usage may be a little higher in this build. It reports as using 0.1% more CPU than the last version on my MacBook Pro, but I'll need your feedback to help me see if this will be a problem;
  • There are still crashing bugs - make sure you report them as you find them;
  • Sometimes the font panel gets lost when using VirtueDesktops (seemingly only inside VirtueDesktops);
  • Light and Motion sensors triggers are still wonky. I will look at this as soon as the bugs above are handled;
  • I'm also planning on writing help for the full 0.54 release, so hopefully I can label that a build for end users.
  • At this stage, I'm not planning on supporting VirtueDesktops under Leopard.
  • Please use VirtueTrac to search for any issues you may be having, and to report any new problems.
