Startup Manager 2.4 released!

Sunday, November 18th, 2007

After a long delay (almost a month late) I finally released Startup Manager 2.4. It took so long because I had some problems finding volunteers to update some of the translations.

The new version 2.4 of Startup Manager – a program to manage the programs that start automatically – now adds support for Browser Helper Objects. Another major change you’ll notice are the new menus, they look a bit like the ms office 2003 menus now and there is a nice title bar in the left view.

With this release there are also four new languages available: Brazilian Portuguese, Czech, Norwegian and Swedish.

For a complete list of changes, you might want to check our history file. Or just check the release notes.

Startup Manager 2.4 can be downloaded at here.
There also is an ANSI version available and source code available at the following location.
And finally there is a list with installers for the translations (all translations are also included in the Startup Manager setup file).

You might also want to check the st-m sourceforge page.

Win32++ Version 5.6 Released

Sunday, November 11th, 2007

Win32++ is the framework Startup Manager uses for its GUI. It is a simple MFC alternative for C++ developers, ideal for beginners and intermediate programmers. It’s a framework for developing frame and dialog based applications. It supports most compilers including Dev-C++ and Visual 2005 Express. And most important: it is opensource (MIT license).

Changes include support for property sheets (modal, modeless and wizard) and an improvement of the theming support. For more information check the Win32++ news item or refer to the release notes.

Help! Urgent: Catalan translator…

Wednesday, November 7th, 2007

We seem to have a rather annoying problem…

So far we’ve been unable to find someone who wants to update our Catalan translation. And before I can release Startup Manager 2.4, this translation needs to be updated too (the others already are). It’s not a lot of work, only 12 sentences.

Interested? Leave a reply on this post or contact me at cnx_glenn [at] users [dot] sourceforge [dot] net.

Thanks in advance for helping us out!
