2015.03
  • Bug Crash with iTunes for Windows.
  • Bug Maximize to screen sometimes did not put window on correct monitor.
  • Bug Crash when tagging windows for compatibility.
  • Improvement Remove "focus mode" completely. Our data indicates it was used very little, and we felt that it had nothing to do in MaxTo anymore.
  • Bug Fix issue with snapping to window edges being enabled even though you turned it off in the options.
  • Bug Fix issue with error reports not being sent.
  • Bug Fix crash when running diagnostic tests.
  • Improvement Bundle Visual C++ Runtime with installer. This increases the installer size (almost doubles it), but is a lot quicker during installation, installs less things on your machine, and it is the right thing (TM) to do.

2015.02

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 Keyboard shortcuts would not move windows past breaks in the working area, e.g. if the taskbar divided two monitors.
  • Bug Sidebar gadgets did not work on Windows 7
  • 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  • Bug Error when loading helper files linked to outdated dependency.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.
  • Improvement Moving windows using keyboard shortcuts now wraps around (moving in one direction gets you back to where you started), and some other small improvements to the algorithm.
  • Bug The next version will list the features that are there when updating, not just a silly string.

2014.12
  • Bug Crash after installing. This was caused by MaxTo trying to run its helper processes from the wrong folder.
  • Improvement Region preview windows were sometimes very self-conscious and hid behind other windows. Some counselling and this window always wants to be on top.

  • Bug Keyboard shortcut Windows+Enter conflicts with Narrator.

  • Bug License check returns ambigious message when license had expired.
  • Bug Changes to license code would not stick. Superglue applied.
  • Bug Changes to keyboard shortcuts would not stick either. Superglue bottle emptied.
  • Bug Keyboard shortcuts for editing regions open wrong regions. A stern talking was given, and it promised to behave itself in the future.
