  • LazyMouse was forcing the new 2010 MacBook Pro to use its NVIDIA GeForce GT 330M graphics card all the time. This should be fixed.

Version 2.1.3 | Release Date: 2009-04-16 | Download

  • Changed the layout of the registration window to make registration more straightforward
Version 2.1.2 | Release Date: 2009-04-10 | Download

    • A serious architecture switch
    • Reduced CPU load
    • Some code was possibly not intel-safe, though it never caused a problem - fixed
    • LazyMouse will now turn itself off when a new version is installed - this didn't used to happen, so people who upgraded LazyMouse while it was on would end up still running the old background application until the next time they toggled or restarted LazyMouse. This may not work until the next minor upgrade, though.
    • Much different register reminder - only appears when LazyMouse does its thing - much smaller and less distracting.
    • When instructing the user to turn on access for assistive devices, LazyMouse now brings up a drawer that acts as a step-by-step tutor.

    • updated links to point to old-jewel.com rather than oldjewelsoftware.com
