Process Lasso v6 Release Thread
« on: July 24, 2012, 05:31:34 AM »
This final was in alpha, then beta, so long that the full list of changes would just be overwhelming. Therefore, some of the more important aspects are documented below.

You may do an automated update, but I recommend an install (over-top the existing installation).

WARNING: When upgrading from version 5, you may lose your Process Lasso NO SLEEP Process Rules. This can cause your PC to do things that it has been waiting for Idle to do, e.g. scheduled disk defrags or updates. You will need to re-apply these settings. Other settings should all persist fine. The reason is because these rules are now subdivided into two types - prevent the whole PC from sleeping or prevent only the display(s) from sleeping.

Process Lasso v6.0.0.61
« Reply #4 on: July 26, 2012, 01:23:07 AM »
    Process Lasso v6.0.0.61
  • [.61]Fix.GUI: Fixed benign errant Total CPU % used calculation (did not affect core engine, nor was it 'real'). It did cause a see-saw type graph when the GUI was minimized to the system tray. When the GUI was not minimized to the system tray, the bug did not manifest. It would only manifest for some unlucky people, some of the time (depended on how close together two timers were).

Process Lasso v6.0.0.76
   

This is the result of a longer than usual beta for a minor update. There have been numerous minor fixes, adjustments, and additions. Overall, it is simply yet another incremental improvement upon the product. From here, we are already preparing the next beta series, with other changes already pending. The work at Bitsum never stops - nor should it! We hope users enjoy this update. If anyone has troubles with the one-time license revalidation, simply email us at support@bitsum.com and we'll take care of you. For those of you who activated a LONG time ago, your code may not be stored, or may not be stored properly. In such a case, visit the Support Area to retrieve your activation code and/or download older versions you may be entitled to (if you are not licensed for this version). Note that lifetime users are entitled to ALL versions.

Process Lasso v6.0.0.86
« Reply #9 on: August 19, 2012, 06:08:29 PM »
   

This update makes the transition to Visual Studio 2012, though VC10 (VS2010) platform tools are used because the VC11 tools don't work with XP as a target yet. Microsoft removed this capability, only to *plan* to restore it in some pending update 'This Fall'. This build does leave many items still to do, but I wanted to get a final build of this next generation on out.

Process Lasso v6.0.0.86
6.0.0.86ChangeBuildMigrated to VC11 and VS2012 - though still must use VC10 platform toolset due to XP not (yet) being supported by VC11 (VS2012). It will be in a pending out-of-band update 'later this fall'. Windows 2000 support is gone (as of VC10).
6.0.0.86RemovalBuildRemoved deprecated.exe srvstub.exe from package - reduced software footprint a slight bit
6.0.0.86RemovalConfig'Restart core engine' removed because it is deprecated by 'smart' recovery if needed
6.0.0.86FixCoreMinor adjustments and fixes
6.0.0.86ChangeCoreOther minor adjustments
6.0.0.86FixStartup/InstallFix issue with Process Lasso start at login configuration in XP for v6+ (requires new run of installer or InstallHelper.exe in this beta)
6.0.0.86FixGUIFix some licensing issues
6.0.0.86ChangeChinese-TradFixed possible old and/or wrong module in use in prior build(s)
6.0.0.86ChangeInstallerRemove test_gdiplus_present.exe from installer [deprecated, was for win2k]
6.0.0.86ChangeBuildRe-enable self-recovery mechanisms (dropping minidumps after a short bug check period)
6.0.0.86ChangeBuildFound and fixed a possible flaw in a supporting tool
6.0.0.86ChangeBuildDropped Windows 2000 compatibility - a last compatible beta and final build were stored at http://bitsum.com/pl_last_w2k.php
6.0.0.86ChangeGUIWindows 8 enhancements (a couple more being worked on)
6.0.0.86ChangeGUIAdjusted About Box user name to show more characters
6.0.0.86ChangeGUIOther minor adjustments
6.0.0.86ChangeLicensingRemoved one-time license validation for older users - it was not as painless as hoped for some.
6.0.0.86ChangeGermanUpdated translation
6.0.0.86AdditionGUIWhen an instance of the GUI is already running in the local session, open its main window on subsequent attempts to launch the GUI (as PL once did)

    Process Lasso v6.0.1.36

What you'll find is a more efficient product with a slightly more appealing and intuitive user interface. A few features have been added, a few bugs fixed.

 
6.0.1.36FixCoreSome processes not terminated or restarted in a timely manner despite being target of a watchdog rule (due to 'polite' termination attempt).
6.0.1.36FixGUIFixed problem with memory load top overlapping its background group control after a size change
6.0.1.36FixGUIFix per-core metrics turned off if any data is unavailable during startup, sometimes resulting in a corrupted right side of graph
6.0.1.36FixGUIExperimental painting adjustments for some non-compositing (mostly XP) systems showing artifacts
6.0.1.36FixGUIFix error that caused empty per-core % time utilized graphs to, rarely, be shown a minority of non-English NT5 systems that didn't meet the pre-requisites
6.0.1.36FixGUIFixed Watchdog Dialog assigning 'Working Set' to run regardless of actual user selection
6.0.1.36RemovalGUIRemoved unimplemented options, preparing for next final

6.0.1.36RemovalGUIRemoved start at login context menu items - at least for now - keeping our focus dedicated.
6.0.1.36RemovalGUIRemoved all code to manage processes start at login. Specialied utilies can do this, and Windows itself.
6.0.1.36ChangeGUILaunch InstallHelper.exe in a non-blocking way, then handle its exit code when it is done (for 'Reconfigure the way Process Lasso starts')
6.0.1.36ChangeGUIFurther painting adjustments for non-composited dekstops (for internal and external testing purposes prior to finalization)
6.0.1.36ChangeGUIStrings finalized for translators to begin work
6.0.1.36ChangeGUIMove Private Bytes beside current total CPU % time graph in Active Processes tab
6.0.1.36ChangeGUIDon't show per-core metrics for single core systems

6.0.1.36ChangeGUIAdded border to per-core metrics
6.0.1.36ChangeGUIDon't clear process name control in Watchdog Dialog if entry is rejected (an annoying quirk in prior builds)
6.0.1.36ChangeGUIEnhanced rule verification while intiially adding to dialog
6.0.1.36ChangeGUIPreserve last window state (e.g. maximized or minimized)
6.0.1.36ChangeGUIAdjustments to memory load rendering (work continues)
6.0.1.36ChangeGUIAdjustments to active processes column sizes and ordering
6.0.1.36ChangeAllVarious components reviewed and code being committed for finalization (though much work remains!)
6.0.1.36ChangeGUIAdjusted graph click behavior (more work coming)
6.0.1.36ChangeGUIMade white default color scheme
6.0.1.36ChangeGUIAdjustments and optimizations to vertical array of progress bars control (thus all instances of it)
6.0.1.36ChangeGUIDynamic size per-core metric graph (grows or shrinks depending on number of cores)
6.0.1.36ChangeGUIMoved per-core CPU % utilization to left, outside main graph - has a flicker in this beta
6.0.1.36ChangeGUIImproved efficiency of graph painting in some situations
6.0.1.36ChangeGUIGraph now 'feels' more smooth
6.0.1.36ChangeGUIChanged apperance of graph (reduced background lines)
6.0.1.36ChangeDefaultsServer Edition governor and GUI instances now manages all users by default
6.0.1.36RemovalInstallerRemoved CHM download prompt for registered users (replacing it)

Process Lasso v6.0.1.42
« Reply #18 on: September 30, 2012, 12:48:40 PM »
    Process Lasso v6.0.1.42

This is a little upgrade from the last final, cleaning up some licensing issues and other small quirks. That said, it also adds a handy temporary 'Keep PC from sleeping' option to the system tray menu AND puts the 'Prevent PC from sleeping' process context menu back on the top level where it belongs!

6.0.1.42AdditionGUIAdded temporary rule to system tray and main menu, 'Force PC to stay awake'. This prevents the PC from sleeping while the GUI is running - until that option is unchecked. It does NOT persist when Process Lasso restarts.
6.0.1.42FixGUIProcess Lasso Window state (e.g. maximized) could be unnecessarily lost after some Process Lasso updates due to change in number of child windows - now is preserved
6.0.1.42FixGUIDisable solitician dialog at startup while it undergoes maintenance
6.0.1.42FixGUIFurther improved painting of memory load graph
6.0.1.42ChangeGUIChange process context menu to give top-level access to 'Prevent sleep when running', made copy of those more granular anti-sleep menu items in 'less common actions'
6.0.1.42ChangeLicensingRemove license revalidation, now that it served its purpose
6.0.1.42ChangeGUIDisable double click on memory load graph to hide it, until we standardize behavior across new controls
6.0.1.42ChangeGUIForce reset of listview column positions and states due to changes in prior build
6.0.1.42ChangeGUIRemove licensee name from About dialog if not known (activation code identifies license)
6.0.1.42ChangeInstallerInclude CHM Docs in Server Edition
6.0.1.42ChangeSerbianUpdated
6.0.1.42ChangeRussianUpdated

    Process Lasso v6.0.1.50

This build makes special improvements in the way Process Lasso is launched by the user. If an instance of the GUI is already running in that user session, that instance's main window is opened *without* requiring the user to hit any UAC prompt. If an instance is not running, then it is launched in accordance to its elevated status. Further, this build fixes a low-level issues with an elevation state related function, thus corrects a few minor quirks.

6.0.1.50FixAllFix to a shared function determining elevation state desired by user
6.0.1.50FixGUISeveral non-critical elevation related fixes due to misnamed external manifest being referenced
6.0.1.50FixGUIFix bottom row of memory load graph not being painted sometimes
6.0.1.50FixInstallHelperPreserves elevation and other startup config state settings more accurately

6.0.1.50FixThreadRacerFixed failure to run under XP (NT5) and below
6.0.1.50FixThreadRacerFixed failure of per-core metrics in some recent builds that had debug code
6.0.1.50FixGUIWhen saved child window positions reset, also force graph visibility setting reset, else can have unpainted but shown child graph windows
6.0.1.50FixGUIAllow full wildcards for some watchdog rules
6.0.1.50ChangeGUIFor betas, let user know that beta updates are forced on via message box
6.0.1.50ChangeGUILaunching GUI will now bring any previous instance in that session to foreground
6.0.1.50ChangeGUIOnly prevent broad scope on watchdog entries for non-harmful action types
6.0.1.50FixGUIFixed inability to add 'log occurrence' events to Watchdog dialog
6.0.1.50FixUpdaterFixed issue with 32-bit Server Edition automated updates (affected only recent builds)
6.0.1.50ChangeItalianUpdated
