Title: Process Lasso v8.8 Released
Post by: Jeremy Collake on August 21, 2015, 02:36:41 PM
Process Lasso v8.8

This is a fairly large update - there are many additions, fixes, and changes. As always, incremental refinement continues, as does preparation for future plans. One thing Audiophile users will appreciate is the new command line script 'pl.cmd' (can just run 'pl') that allows them to easily display the Process Lasso GUI on Windows Servers in the 'core mode' of Audiophile Optimizer.

Other additions include pathnames to all applicable log entries, which now allows users to jump to the location on disk of the process a log entry pertains to, and in the future allowing much more.

Further, the Keep Running and manually induced Gaming Mode settings are now persisted in the event of an update or restart of Process Lasso, though being a new addition, that only applies to this version and above.

Overall, this a great new version of Process Lasso that has tested wonderfully in our QA labs.

Changes: 'pl.cmd' batch file as a shortcut to launch Process Lasso's GUI, primarily for Windows Server users installer section to optionally add Lasso install path to system environment PATH variable. By doing so, command line can simply run 'pl' to launch Lasso's GUI pathname parameter to log file, changing log format process governor pathname and command line in 'initialized' log entry new Locate submenu (for disk and internet) to log entries in actions pane support for new system tray icon and more (ParkControl Pro) [work in progress] to import and export of configuration file user-induced Gaming Mode state not preserved on Lasso restart Keep Running state/countdown not preserved on Lasso restart sorting of date/time of last restraint column build ordering issue that could have caused wrong insights exe build to be included safety backup on import of new configuration file maximum log lines to display at one time (to reduce RAM utilization and improve load speed) some in-product URLs timeout after update for system tray click to see revision history (now back to 10 seconds) new SmartTrim menu option to exclude game processes, part of new submenu for SmartTrim and Gaming Mode interaction settings (not yet enabled) any running ParkControl instances log files after 1000 entries product activation to distinct subdomain for server isolation Emisoft interoperability German, Russian, and French
