xStarter 1.8.8

  • The program now supports the ClearType technology of smoothing fonts.
  • The FileHash action has been added, hashes are created with the help of the CRC32 or MD5 methods.
  • A filter by the external addresses commands can be received from has been added to the TCP/IP monitoring event.
  • The Secure option where you can set the TLS or SSL security method has been added to the SendMail action. Now messages from GMail mailboxes are successfully sent.
  • The SSL option has been added to the CheckMail, DeleteMail actions. Now messages from GMail mailboxes are successfully received.
  • The Case-Sensitive option has been added to the ReplaceText action.
  • The bug that made it impossible to import tasks if the current task and section list was empty has been fixed.
  • It is now possible to export tasks without passwords. It is useful when you send tasks to people who should not know your passwords.
  • The option for stopping a task has been added to the DisableTask action.
  • Action FirstLastFile now contain fields to specify files masks for including files and excluding files during file search.
  • The InputVar actions coming in a row are now displayed in one dialog box during execution.
  • The FolderProperties action has been added, it returns such folder properties as creation and modification dates, attributes.
  • The CheckMail action can now be at the end of only message headers.
  • The event allowing you to launch tasks when processes are started/stopped has been added.
  • Now you can send the Win key in the SendKeys action as well, for example, #(L).
  • Events starting tasks when the system is idle now work somewhat differently. This event used to analyze keystrokes and mouse clicks/movements directly. Now hooks are not used and a special Windows function returning the system idle time is analyzed.
  • Now it is possible to specify the list of addresses to listen to in the properties of the TCP/IP event, addresses must be separated from each other with a semicolon.
  • The option that disables popup windows when records are added to the task log is now available. You can find this option in the log options on the task log tab.
  • When the task log tab is open and when records are being added to the list, the whole log is no longer loaded, only the new records are loaded. It adds some "smoothness" to loading new records.
  • Hook libraries are now excluded from the distribution package of the program and can be downloaded separately. It is done because a lot of antivirus software and firewalls consider these libraries malicious and spoil the reputation of the program. Due to the exclusion of these libraries, a number of events work with limitations (window events, keyword events, hotkey events if it is specified in what window the key combination should be processed).
  • The bug causing an error while playing one sound file first from the task configurator and then according to the scheduler from the service application has been fixed.
  • Fixed some other minor bugs.
