Startup Manager and OpenCandy

Wednesday, October 15th, 2008

Together with Startup Manager 2.4.2, today Opencandy was released for the first time. And the brand new version of Startup Manager already makes use of it.

Opencandy’s goal is to fuel innovation and prosperity in the software community, and deliver the best applications to the right users.

OpenCandy is a network, created by six founding DivX members, of software creators who like to increase the visibility of their application by recommending each other’s. This is done by inserting an extra page in the installer to create a user-friendly experience and offer optimal engagement for making a software recommendation. You can visit this page to learn more.

Software is too hard to find, impossible to discover, and not intuitive enough to manage. We will enable people to discover and manage software by delivering the best, most relevant applications to them.

Because Startup Manager is yet another opensource project that is certainly worth giving a try, but not known by a lot of people, we decided to join OpenCandy and hope for the best!

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 2.3.2 released

Tuesday, September 4th, 2007

Like the previous one, the 2.3.2 release isn’t a major release either. But it certainly contains some new interesting interface features. For instance it now is possible to sort the start items in the main view by clicking the column headers and there are in-place tooltips for items that don’t fit their cell width.
The properties dialogs were updated too, now it is possible to select and copy the values.

Startup Manager also became better at handling invalid registry items and the bootcore exception handling was also improved.

Startup Manager 2.3.1 released

Monday, July 30th, 2007

Not a major release this time, just some bugfixes and minor feature additions. It now is possible to delete a selection of multiple items and there is a run button to run an item now.

The most important bugfix is that now all transparency problems in the properties dialogs are solved. Thus the icons in the tab controls and the static text fields have a correct background color now. Also when Startup Manager regains focus, this focus is set to the correct control now.
