Alarm++ 9.0.2 Released

This version streamlines the application by removing some features that are either very rarely used, difficult to maintain, or just plain out-of-date: automation support, theme styles, tips, German translation, update check, context-sensitive help.

The documentation is now only on the Web site.

This version also fixes crash that occurred when the user selected a non-workday as the start day of a workday-only alarm.

Timekeeper 1.62 Released

This version removes the compatibility warning. The default value for “Transparent background” is now false because it doesn’t look very good on Windows 7. Translucency on Windows is handled better so there’s no need for it anyway.

Timekeeper 1.61.0 Released

This version of Timekeeper removes support for Windows XP themes and adds explicit support for Windows 7 and later (including 8 and 8.1). (This eliminates the compatibility warning on Windows 7 and later.) There’s a known issue with the new translucency Windows uses on the taskbar. Counterintuitively, if you disable Timekeeper’s transparent background and use a black background instead, it should be virtually transparent. If you use a color for the background, it will take on that hue (and will be translucent rather than solid).
