ObjectDock RC1 released


Act your wage.

For all you ObjectDock users, you might want to head over to Stardock's website and upgrade to Release Candidate 1.0, which was released today. WinCustomize also has a front-page article, which highlights the major changes. I installed it and have already noticed a couple of nice changes -- especially a fix for the issue that sometimes kept folder shortcuts from opening.

I've noticed a performance improvement on mine since I upgraded. It would get pretty jumpy sometimes, but so far it's much better now. Also, I haven't had to click on a folder shortcut more than once so far to get it to open, so it looks like that issue has been taken care of! :D

I am not sure what drugs you are on but it might be time to stop for a while because ObjectDock has always been free. As far as I know it will remain that why.


Tomorrow Tweaking Today
Only the beta stays free. If you've had any experience with Wincustomize software you'd know that it becomes adware with nag screens etc The whole idea of a release candidate is to get the public to fix bugs before releasing a nagged version. Must be really stoned if you didn't see that one coming :D


Obviously you should ask before assuming... I have been a suscriber to ObjectDesktop and WinCustomize and Stardock Central for 3 years now. Several of Stardocks programs have been freeware even after version 1 has come out.

Cursor XP 1.2
Logon XP RC 6
Pocket Blinds v1
SmartException v1.00.002
XPBench 1.03.024
Stack'N Sac 1.0.009
Elves Incorporated 1.0.001
and so on
Minor nag screen in only a few of them at best.


Tomorrow Tweaking Today
Only 2 popular, useful ones are Cursor XP (nag screens) and Logon XP (Release candidate). We'll wait and see what happens with ObjectDock. Betcha I'm right. :)
