StartWatch 0.7.1 released
« on: November 23, 2006, 03:41:14 AM »
StartWatch v. 0.7.1 is now available

I'll now be working on updating the manual to match the current features. When that's done, I'll release StartWatch as v. 1.0.0.

Whats new in 0.7.1
* Sometimes StartWatch didn't detect that a port that had gone down had come back up. Made some changes to fix this.
* Made further tunings to algorithm that detects which of a program's windows is the best one to receive the close message.
* Fixed bug that allowed unwanted characters into the alerts, causing the alerts display to be blank.
* Additional information is written to alerts having to do with program hangs, cpu hogging, and exceeding memory limit.
* No longer send a minimize message if a program ignores initial request for it to start minimized. This feature sometimes caused programs to get into weird states since they often received the message while still initializing.
* Added slider control to program options window. The slider is associated with the Hang Protection check box, and allows you to control the sensitivity of the hang protection. Low sensitivity means the program can be unresponsive for a long time before being tagged as "hung". High sensitivity means the program will be    tagged as "hung after only a brief period of time in an unresponsive state.
* Added 2 seconds option to the Check Interval setting.
* Fixed bug that used the check interval during program startup. Between the time StartWatch starts the program and when the program first responds, StartWatch is supposed to check frequently, and only used the check interval after the program has begun responding. This was most noticable when the check interval was long.
