TrayBlank 1.10

TrayBlank 1.10 is a small update that does something really useful. Well, I will find it useful anyway. I'm not really sure if anyone else finds TrayBlank useful at all. Maybe I'm just making it less useless.

Up until now TrayBlank's progress bar has shown the progress until the screen saver starts. Unfortunately, it didn't take one important thing into consideration - the power management settings. I kept seeing the progress bar chugging along before the screen went black as the monitor switched off without the screen saver starting up.

The update adds in the monitor power-off time to the icon tooltip, and also changes the progress bar when the screen saver is going to be preempted by the power management settings. Instead of the solid bar that gradually changes from blue to red, the bar will be a sort-of zig-zag line in yellow. I tried quite a few shapes and colour combinations, but this seemed like the one that was most obviously different from the normal progress bar.

SVGGraph 3.3

SVGGraph 3.3 is another update that looks like it has very little in it. Here's the most obvious change:

An ArrayGraph

The ArrayGraph is a new graph type that uses subgraphs to split datasets out and draw multiple graphs on one document. It is a bit limited at the moment, but I thought now would be a good time to release it and see about improving it later. Some details of the ArrayGraph and how to use it have been added to the other graphs page.

JPEG Saver 5.5

JPEG Saver 5.4 was a big, complicated update that didn't appear to change very much at all, so I've tried to get some more interesting things into version 5.5. I haven't done much with the multi-monitor support recently, so that was where I started:

New multi-monitor options

I had to update the multi-monitor options dialog to add in some new settings, so now it looks like this:

Multi-monitor dialog

The first change is in the “Main display” option. Previously you could choose which of your displays JPEG Saver should use as its main display, but now you also have the option of using whichever display is set as the Windows primary display as your main display. If you change your primary display in the Control Panel settings, JPEG Saver will automatically use the new primary screen.
