Changes for v2.1.1 - v2.4.1

  • NEW Geek Window: Add realtime keys, clicks, download and upload per second variables called "Rates".
  • NEW Add support for Windows 8.1, Windows 2012R2 and OS X Yosemite (10.10).
  • NEW OS X: Client is now signed with a proper certificate (Gatekeeper likes us now).
  • IMPROVED The Facebook login experience has been greatly enhanced.
  • IMPROVED The Qt framework has been upgraded to Qt5 (from Qt4) and we've sent it to the gym. The Windows is now only 22MB (42% smaller) and the Mac client is now 34MB (45% smaller)
  • IMPROVED Reduce memory usage greatly on some computers where it used much memory.
  • IMPROVED Database size: Delete mouse points older than 3 months from the heat map to save space and memory usage (option to keep them). This reduces the size of an average database with 80% and improves client performance.
  • IMPROVED Improved communication flow to prevent wrong tokens when internet connectivity is unreliable.
  • FIXED Windows: Fixed some cases where 'zombie' client processes can happen (client was running but not showing).
  • FIXED Fix issues where client does not start on Windows startup in some cases.

Changes for v2.0.1 - v2.0.4

  • [Enhancement] Add an option to disable automated pulse notifications

  • [Enhancement] Add the ability to auto detect the system proxy server
  • [Enhancement] Add total account overview (totals + ranks) to account tab

  • [Enhancement] Make scheduled backups of databases and fall back on backups if main database file gets corrupted
  • [Fix] Improve accuracy of measuring both uptime and bandwidth
  • [Fix] Count bandwidth from and to a proxy server in unpulsed stats (was excluded in previous clients)
