v5.1.0.36 final

This build was a day or two behind my scheduled release date, but such is life. The important thing is that we are rolling forward quickly now. This is the v5.1 'base' for any future maintenance, and the v5.2 beta series has *already begun*. We can't wait to show you what is in store, and will continue back-porting minor fixes to v5.1 while v5.2 is in beta.

Changes:
  • [.34]Addition.GUI: Added new 'Enable Energy Saver' quick toggle to system tray, application menu, and Energy Saver dialog
  • [.34]Fix.GUI: Some of the multi-selection process context menu items were not saving configuration changes immediately
  • [.34]Addition.GUI: Also show processes with a >200MB commit size in Active Processes view
  • [.34]Change.GUI: Some cosmetic adjustments
  • [.34]Change.GUI: Double length of time an inactive process may stay listed in the Active processes tab after it has gone inactive
  • [.34]Change.GUI: Moved 'Prevent sleep' process menu option back out to the main context menu, instead of hid in the classification - adjusted Russian translation as necessary
  • [.34]Update.GUI: Updated Finnish, Polish, German, Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, Serbian, and others ...
  • [.36]Fix.Core: Fixed issue where recognition of a change to a multimedia classification wouldn't take effect until the core engine, or the designated multimedia classified process, would start or restart. If using Energy Saver with multimedia exclusions, this could cause it to not behave correctly until the core engine (or applicable multimedia process) restarted after the configuration change.
  • [.36]Change.Core: Auto exclude multimedia classified processes from ProBalance restraint
  • [.36]Fix.GUI: Fixed issue where wrong text could show up in ProBalance exclusions dialog (functionality not affected)

v5.1.0.48 final

This build fixes an anomaly in some low-level code that was missed in the previous final. An embarrassing mistake and QA failure on this end, though it only affected those using Watchdog rules, which is likely why it was missed in beta testing.

v5.1.0.66 final

This build had one false start, that's how we got to .66. Fixing things up within a few hours, .66 is the final build. This build backports beter handling of processes that are actually services by both the governor and GUI. It also adds 'Trim Virtual Memory' as a watchdog option, though currently only available in the Process Watchdog configuration dialog.

  • [.64]These are more backports from the new v6 code base. Specifically, it backports better internal support when dealing with services.
  • [.66]Fix.Build: Fix issue with short lived .62 build that would cause process duplication when main window visible
  • [.66]Addition.Core: Process Watchdog terminations and restarts will now act in accordance with the process type (service or regular process), transparent to the user
  • [.66]Addition.Core: Upgrade to other governor code (using latest from v6 branch)
  • [.66]Removal.GUI: Removed non-function restraint timer from restriant history column
  • [.66]Change.GUI: Updated a few languages
  • [.66]Change.All: Upgraded some components to stable code from v6
  • [.66]Addition.GUI: Issuing a restart on one or more processes that are services will cause induction of a stop/start of the appropriate services
  • [.66]Fix.All: Possible fix for some rarely seen crashes

Change summary:

This version back-ports new core-engine (governor) monitoring code to keep a continual watch on the governor. Best of all, it stays asleep until a problem occurs. Only then is it awoiken. If any problem occurs, it waits a bit to make sure it isn't temporary, then goes on to correct things (regardless of configuration). There are also a few other minor backports and optimizations from v6.

Change summary:

This version back-ports more minor fixes and enhancements from the v6 alpha (internal) build. We don't want to make anyone feel as if they are waiting, and so are therefore making every safe enhancement available for v5. Keep in mind that anyone who purchases Process Lasso Pro at this time *will* get a free update to version 6.

  • Fix.Core: Fixed Energy Saver could cause power profile to stay lowered if the core engine improperly terminated or if a shutdown was induced without user interraction.
  • Change.Core: Allow wildcards in the watchdog ruleset.
  • Change.Core: Updated to latest data structures from v6.
  • Change.Build: Updated to latest PE Suite tools from Bitsum.
