Release Notes

This a bug-fix release!

1. {fixed} When Open option dialog on Vista exception is shown
2. {fixed} When manual reposition SBar ShowDesktop button go to wrong position
3. {fixed} Sometimes when hover button or when start application Button image do not refresh
4. Other fixes

For now Know bugs are:

- On some machines there a crash with unhandled exception (when use transformation packs or modified system files)
- When Taskbar is set to Autohide there is a problem with initial positioning of SBar
- some windows are missing if you start SBar after that windows are showed

IMPORTANT! Due to the database change All user settings will be overridden! for users that have troubles or database exceptions please unrar SBarDB.rar into the user local application data folder and then run SBar!

NOTE: Some people has reported that after install new version of Sbar the taskbar buttons dissapear! Well i wrote in many post how to fix that but seems some people not read that so i post here the solution.
If you have above problem do this:
1. Go to Options dialog
2. Hit "Reset" button
3. Hit "Apply" and "OK" button
and buttons should show!

Note2: If you use somekind of transformation packs or any kind of custom system files modifications its possible to have unexpected crashes or unhadled exceptions since SBar is designed to work WITH FACTORY windows!

Reviews for this release

Great utility, better than ViGlance on some accounts but not on others. I too would like to see the taskbar shuffle and a start icon orb, as well as smaller XP style recent list borders and removing of the "show desktop" button to bind this action to double clicking on the start menu button!

It should have a taskbar shuffle like viglance. Also viglance has a nice orb like windows 7 which fades the glow in. SBar should have this too. It is better than viglance. when i click start with windows it dosent work and i can see the taskbar when my screensaver is on. If it has a taskbar shuffle and better orb it will be the best one around!

I like it better than Viglance but would be nice to have taskbar shuffle and smooth transition from one thumbnail preview to another. Plus adding some new skins without it crashing would be nice.

Build 1061.Very good and very stable on my XP PC with transformation Pack 9. Only 2 minor bugs which for sure will be solved in future builds: Live Messenger cannot be pinnen anymore to the taskbar., After screensaver the pinned taskbar items have vanished an are only resolved after I open explorere (i.e when I select My Computer) Far better then ViGlance Keep on the good work Dimitri

The only thing I miss is the "Opera 10" support and taskbar shuffle. It is much better than VIGlance

thnx for the options fix in vista. As Zodiac says, the crash still happens when ok is clicked on the options.

The Tool is not bad, but I can not use the new Version, because the the Position of the "Show Desktop"- Button is not right on my Screen Resolution of 1440X900.

The exception when open options dialog is fixed but still occurs when u hit o.k in options dialog. also drag and drop application does not seem to be working anymore.
