Hi All,
Here is a good news, after more than one year a newer version of PMW is 'almost' ready and I invite you all to please try the prerelease version, and since it now internationalized I also need your help in localizing it in your own native language. Please leave your email id here with message that you would want to try the prerelase version (or would want to help in localization), and I will contact you soon.This upcoming release includes following features, 

  1. Internationalization: All the strings are now read from a language file (XML file), so users them self can localize it. user can have multiple language file and change the language on the fly.
  2. Auto Update: Now with new version, user will get to know when newer version is available, and will be able to upgrade to newer version.
  3. Portable version (too): Newer version will be truly portable version, so that user can take it with them in USB Thumb drive and use it where they go.
  4. Remember Priority: Now user will be able save priority of all application ...so If they are launched next time...they will be launched with remembered priority...
  5. Kill and Kill All menu in context menu of try : Now user will be able to kill application from PMW's tray menu too... this has been asked by many users in past...
  6. Configurable tray Menu: Users will be able decide which menus to keep.
  7. Shortcuts : Now all system menu operations have shortcuts..
  8. A new UI: little better than earilier version.

The 'transparency' keys conflict with Windows 7's snap hotkeys (pressing them snaps the window to each side of the screen, even across monitors), making PMW's keys (although they still work), unusable.

Perhaps you could let the user set their own shortcuts, and/or use different shortcut keys for transparency?

Many thanks,
Brian

PMW 2.0 is a nice improvement from previous version.

Remember priority and set priority don't work with everything however like my bluetooth manager set priority won't work with and my E-MU PatchMix neither works for.

Another good addition would be to add remember priority into windows task manager as well.

@Brian,
Thanks for your feedback Brian.

I have locally done two changes on my machine. after your feedback.

1. I have changed the shortcuts.
Now all the shortcuts in system
Menu us Ctrl+Win+*
Earlier it was Win+*

2. I have added an option in
preferences.
"Allow Shortcut"

a) Now I am testing it myself.
Will give to some friends also for
test.

b) I will have to also request all
Translator to translate the
newly added string
"Allow Shortcuts"

Once a) and b) are successfully done. I will make another release.

Your PMW autoupdater will soon get a notification.

Perhaps before 25 April 2010.
(However No promise about dates).

Just wanted to report that the WINDOWS + LEFT/RIGHT shortcut for Transparency interferes with Windows 7's window management of the same shortcut.
Thanks.
