Windows 7: ultramon 3.0.6 beta released

18 Jul 2009   #1

Windows 7 Professional 64-bit
ultramon 3.0.6 beta released

A new version of Ultramon is now available for download. This release adds support for Windows 7.

Other changes include:

New in this release

Support for Windows 7: the window buttons now work when using the Windows 7 or Windows 7 Basic themes, and the Smart Taskbar matches the Windows 7 look, with support for no labels and small icons. If you disabled the window buttons in order to be able to use a previous release on Windows 7, you'll need to enable them again under UltraMon Options > Buttons and Menu Commands.
Support has also been added for the drag maximized windows with the mouse feature. If you prefer to use Windows 7's support for dragging maximized windows, you can disable the feature under UltraMon Options > General.
Fixed issues

• Mirroring may crash when changing settings, for example when adding an additional mirror target monitor
• Smart Taskbar: wrong icons used for task buttons for some applications, for example Taskbar and Start Menu Properties applet with large fonts on Vista, or UltraMon Options dialog
• Fatal error in MultimonGUI.cpp at line 1957 when disabling the disable/enable secondary monitors menu option, then setting the double-click action to disable or enable secondary monitors
Known issues

• Runtime error in Adobe Acrobat when moving maximized window if Acrobat was launched from CCH ProSystem Engagement. As a workaround, go to UltraMon Options > Compatibility, then configure settings for Adobe Acrobat and check the 'use alternative method to move maximized window' option
• WindowBlinds skins which use transparency aren't fully supported on Windows XP, you'll get a black background where the taskbar should be transparent. There is no fix for this, it does work fine on Windows Vista though

For 32-bit Windows 7/Vista/XP/2000: UltraMon_3.0.6_en_x32.msi 2.48
MBFor 64-bit Windows 7/Vista/XP: UltraMon_3.0.6_en_x64.msi 3.14 MB

Please note that this release is less mature than UltraMon 2.7.1, and is mainly recommended if you:
  • are using Windows 7 or Vista,
  • are affected by an issue which was fixed in this release,
  • or want to try the new features

Thanks for the heads up.

Installed and working no problem so far. The taskbar preview doesn't work on the second task bar 9didn't really expect it too), but it is nice to have the taskbar looking proper, and the icons in it as well.
