How to Upgrade

[!] Important
[+] New
[-] Fixed error
[*] Changes

Actual Virtual Desktops 8.9 (22.07.2016)
[+] The ability is added to invoke advanced title button dialogs (usually
    invoked via right-click on a button) for a currently active window
    via hotkeys. The following hotkey has been added:

    - Show the "Move to specific virtual desktop" menu (Win-Ctrl-\)

    You can change the default key combination in the Hotkeys-Actions panel.

    This feature can be useful on monitors with high resolutions (up to 4K)
    where distance to a required button may be too long to drag the mouse there
    just to invoke the dialog via right click. Using the hotkeys above will make
    the dialogs appear exactly under the mouse pointer, ready for immediate use.

[+] The CFL command line switch is expanded with the ability to specify
    an arbitrary folder where the configuration files should be stored:

    ActualVirtualDesktopsCenter.exe CFL "<full_path_to_the_folder>"

[*] Overall stability is improved.

[*] Proper scaling in high DPI resolutions has been finally implemented for:

    - Virtual Desktop Switcher

    - extra title button

    - Log window

[*] Evaluation dialog has been restyled.

[*] Proper scaling in high DPI resolutions has been finally implemented for
    program dialogs (About, Register, Check for Updates, etc.).

[-] Windows 10: Virtual Desktop Switcher displayed irrelevant entries for
    invisible Metro app windows.

[-] Configuration: With large interface font size (either set manually in the
    User Interface settings or generated automatically because of a high
    screen DPI resolution), navigation page captions did not fit the headers.

[!] Windows 10: False-positive SmartScreen warning about setup file corruption
    is finally remedied.

Actual Virtual Desktops 8.8 (31.03.2016)

    Configuration window.

[!] Configuration: Global Options subitems have been removed from
    the Window Settings navigation tree and transformed into tabs of the Global
    Options detail panel.

[+] Configuration: Ability is added to select all items in the lists with
    multi-selection allowed by pressing the Ctrl-A hotkey. As this key
    combination was reserved for adding a new item to a list, the New Item
    hotkey has been changed to Ctrl-N.

[*] Configuration: Hotkey combinations for list operations have been unified
    for all list-editing panels:

    Ins, Ctrl-N       - add new item
    Del, Ctrl-D       - delete selected item
    F5                - copy selected item
    Ctrl-=, Ctrl-Num+ - enable all items (where available)
    Ctrl--, Ctrl-Num- - disable all items (where available)
    Ctrl-A            - select all items (where available)

[*] Configuration: Confirmation request for the Delete Item operation has been
    removed in all list-editing panels. If you accidentally removed the needed
    item - you can click the Undo button in the bottom-left corner of the main

    warns that it must be run as administrator to update the installation in
    a trusted location.

    - Actual Virtual Desktops Switcher is not available in taskbars

Actual Virtual Desktops 8.4 (27.05.2015)

    - popular web browsers: Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox;

    - Microsoft Office applications (since Office 2007);

    - Windows Explorer (since Windows 8).

    This feature should prevent the overlapping of extra title bar buttons
    provided by Actual Virtual Desktops with standard controls available
    in a window (like standard buttons, browser tabs, New Tab button, etc.).

[+] Automatic gradual Compact View is added for extra title bar buttons:
    now the buttons are getting hidden/shown 1-by-1 if there is not enough
    (or enough again) place in the title bar to show the full list of enabled
    extra buttons. When some buttons get hidden, the special Compact View button
    automatically appears on the left of remained buttons: click on this button
    will display the currently hidden buttons.

[-] Sometimes running programs might crash after unloading Actual Virtual Desktops.

[-] The bug prevented NuSphere PhpEd 15 debugger from starting is fixed.

[-] Magix products (Movie Edit, Music Maker) stopped responding during loading.

[*] Title buttons compact mode now works correctly in systems with right-to-left
    languages (like Arabic or Hebrew).

[-] Title buttons in compact mode were positioned incorrectly
    in the following cases:

    - in Windows 7 and later with the Aero visual theme activated

    - with vertical shift applied

    - when maximizing/restoring a window where the compact mode was activated
      automatically (i.e. the window's title in normal state was too narrow
      to embrace the full list of buttons)

Actual Virtual Desktops 8.2 (22.09.2014)
[!] The Configuration Module now can run multiple windows at once.

    For example, you can open several Window Settings windows using the
    "Manage window settings" title button (separate window for each settings).

    When several configuration windows are open at once, changes made within
    a particular window are isolated there until you click the Apply button
    in that window.

[!] Changes made in the Default Window Settings now are propagated automatically
    to all existing specific window settings (provided that the old value
    was the same in both Default and particular specific settings).

[+] Quick Setup wizard is added. It allows to tune up quickly the most
    frequently used features (according to collected and analyzed usage
    statistics) without diving into details.

[+] Compact mode for extra title buttons is now available: it displays the small
    narrow button instead of the full list of active buttons.

    Click on this button expands the list of active buttons so they can be used
    as usual. Second click on this button or click somewhere else collapses the
    list of active buttons so they do not block the view (this can be especially
    useful in non-standard windows like Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox).

    The compact mode activates either automatically (when the extra buttons
    do not fit the title bar) or it can be set permanently for particular
    windows in the Window Settings options (see the "Title Buttons - Options"

[+] In addition to a right click on extra title buttons, now you can hold
    the left mouse button on them for some time to invoke their extended
    abilities (like context menus or special dialogs).

[*] Compatibility with Windows 8.1 Service Pack 1 has been improved.

[*] The window invoked by the "Copy Settings from..." command now does not
    display the target Window Settings item.

[-] Downloaded setups of newer versions were installed automatically even if

    appeared in the Virtual Desktops Switcher after switching the desktops
