ObjectDock 1.0 RC

The ObjectDock 1.0 release candidate is now available for download at www.objectdock.com.

ObjectDock is a freeware program launcher / task manager that does its job with style. It's completely skinnable, can have tasks and programs be represented by .PNG files or icons, and has a host of special effects to make it look and feel like any kind of dock one might want to have on their system.

New in this release candidate:

  • Issue with icons temporarially disapparing and/or stopping updating (e.g. clocks) after changing screen resolutions or coming out of hibernation fixed

  • Settings are now saved whenever the config dialog is closed, rather than on exit only.

  • Mouse activation:

  • When in "normal z-order" mode, will bring to front when mouse moves into activation area and leave there until another window is activated

  • When in "bottom" mode, will bring to front when mouse moves into activation area, and will put the dock back on bottom when the dock leaves the dock's area.

  • Resizable Icon Chooser dialog (remembers its size as well)

  • Added text to clerify how to remove docklets

  • Updated Weather plugin to use Weather.com's XML feed, and added ability to switch to metric units.

  • Fix issue with folders as shortcuts not properly launching

  • Run-visibility option added for shortcuts (run minimized, maximized, etc)

  • Improved clock to have thicker hands

  • Option to add your own separators added

  • Fixed a large number of additional little glitches found from postings on the messageboards, thanks to tips from testers
