What's New in version 1.5.6:

  • Added an option to prevent the mouse-click that toggles the Dock's visibility from being passed-on to other applications. This prevents ugly side-effects.
  • The Toggle Button can display the mouse's status and the name of the application under the mouse pointer.
  • Added options to the actions for a left-click on the top level Centre Button.
  • Repaired the bug that failed to load the "About" text correctly for languages other than English. (For English there was no problem).
  • Change the "Loading Settings" graphic to one provided by "Archon of Fate" - for which, many thanks!.
  • New object delete animation included ("Laser").
  • Added a new German translation by Eric Hoffman: "German (Hoffman)" - for which, many thanks!
  • Added alternative translations for Hungarian, Lithuanian, Norwegian, Romanian, Slovak, Slovenian and Turkish.
  • Fixed a problem with language detection.
  • Tuned the "ellipse" routines to make it easier to configure. I've also added a new routine to calculate dock item positions using different formula: you can test this by selecting "Ellipse 2" as a Dock Shape. "Ellipse 1" uses the pre-existing calculations.
  • Dock Item Labels can now contain more than one line of text. Press Ctrl+Enter in the text entry box to start a new line.
  • Circle Dock requires to restart itself if either the Z-Order or UI Language settings are changed in the main configuration dialog. This happens automatically when the Settings dialog is closed.
  • Drag-and-Drop operations for Dock Items have been enhanced.
  • dded the ability toggle the display of Desktop Icons and, for Windows Vista and Windows 7, the Sidebar gadgets.
  • The wrong colour appeared for "Add" sub-menu for the Centre Button and Background context menus; this has been fixed.
  • Modified the Help Browser to select downloading new versions by Operating System. Choices are "Auto-Detect", "32-bit" and "64-bit". A check-mark appears next to the correct download for your OS and will be the version downloaded if "Auto-Detect" is selected.
  • New included Applet: Wallpaper Auto-Changer.
