Release Notes

SUMMARY: This doesn't do anything except display an explorer-like view of your cacheable apps. This is a proof-of-concept to (a) demonstrate that the project really isn't dead, and (b) get any critical feedback on crashes or unhandled exceptions in the core startup logic.

I just cracked the mystery of how to populate the list of processes into the Windows Presentation Foundation-based UI. This has been a problem for me for months, and I really began to wonder if I'd ever figure out how to do this. Since the next version release is so late (at least based on user interest and my own perception of how long this should have taken), I'd rather get a proof-of-concept release available now, than wait potentially weeks or months more while I get the user interaction logic worked out.

Requirements: .NET Framework 4 (Client Profile or full install)
Time to launch: for most well-used Windows systems, 30-60 seconds is the current time from double-click to visible User Interface

I already know:
  • the menu options don't work
  • the Save button doesn't do anything
  • there are no checkboxes to select/deselect which apps you want to cache

So yes, this doesn't really move the ball forward as far as "can I safely reboot my box?" For that, please continue to use the v1.2 release.

But if you've wondered if this project would ever show results again, this is a "yes" answer. More to come soon (now that I've got a real working model to debug).

Reviews for this release

Worked well on windows 8.1 x64, no particular crash, hangs and started in about 10 seconds. Keep going and keep posted :)

Mike - I don't get it - seems like the same default-none-selected as before, isn't it?...I'd want to have this app a) START for me automatically every time I boot up, and b) restore ALL my running software by default - just let me unselect anything I don't want to restart after a crash, if for some reason that software offendeth...I can't think of any reason I'd not want everything to restart.

It's not functioning, so impossible to test. Since the menus don't open I can't see if there are new options that I need/like I would like to see the following options: 1) select programs ones that will never be cached 2) a select all button for the programs that are listed 3) a possibility that the program automatically starts and caches programs that I've indicated one to always be cached
