2017.07

Bug fix release that fixes the most annoying bugs in MaxTo.

The largest change here is updating to .NET Framework 4.7, which allows us to support running monitors at different DPI, less known as "per-monitor DPI awareness".

Besides this improvement, we have fixed quite a few outstanding bugs.

  • Bug Fix error in that always numbers the primary monitor as 1.
  • Bug Fix error that loaded a merged version of main and alternative regions on primary monitor.
  • Bug Fix error preventing snapping to region edges.
  • Bug Fix error loop that would cause extreme slowness when moving a modern (UWP) app.
  • Bug Fix error that hides notification icon if MaxTo is started before Windows Explorer.
  • Bug Fix potential crash induced in other programs when signing out of Windows.
  • Improvement 4K/high-DPI support (aka. per-monitor DPI awareness).
  • Bug Compatibility shim: ignore NVidia apps (which can solve issues with iCloud)
  • Bug Compatibility shim: ignore Unity 3D
  • Bug Compatibility shim: ignore MiiCollab

  • Bug Crash with iTunes for Windows.
  • Bug Maximize to screen sometimes did not put window on correct monitor.

Loads of bug fixes and a few new features. For example, we fixed the bug where MaxTo does not list all of these great improvements:

  • Feature Swap with windows in region hotkey.
  • Improvement Notification icon indicates if MaxTo is in passive mode.
  • Bug MaxTo did not respond correctly to working area changes.

  • Bug Installer error "Failed to correctly acquire...".
  • Bug Error when loading helper files linked to outdated dependency.
  • Bug Crash when emulating windows that did not report an icon.
