We’re continuing to work on the TopDesk 1.5.5, and had expected to release it at the beginning of March. The release has been delayed, however, as we’ve found new ways to improve and optimize existing features and have added features that increase compatibility with Vista and Vista x64. Therefore, as a stop-gap, we’ve released TopDesk 18.104.22.168, which fixes the main complaint with TopDesk 1.5.4.
We expect the TopDesk 1.5.5 to go into beta within the next week or two. The main features include:
- A new window detection algorithm that is compatible with more non-standard applications.
- A window exclusion/compatibility list that gives users the ability to manage which windows TopDesk displays and how it displays them.
- An application compatibility list that lets users specify that TopDesk should disable itself when certain applications are running.
- Better support for Vista and Vista x64, including the ability to tile/hide Administrator application windows when running under a standard user account on Vista, and improved handling of the Win+Tab hot key.
