ScreenSnap 4.2 and ColourDock 2.3 Information

Yes, we know, ScreenSnap 4.2 was supposed to be released in early September, however due to a last-minute issue that was discovered, we unfortunately had to delay its release. So, here is what happened, and when it will finally come out.

The way that ScreenSnap was designed was using a type of Software Development Kit and coding platform that doesn't support scaled displays too well. Luckily, Microsoft has recently added a way to fix all of that, however it requires a bit of work. In ScreenSnap 4.2, we decided to add in a temporary solution now, and then a proper fix later, however this temporary fix had some issues that were discovered that were serious enough to prevent us from releasing it.

On the plus side, this meant that we are finally doing what we should have done from the beginning, which is add in proper support for scaled displays. The downside is, this requires a lot of time and work to make sure that everything is working as intended, so we aren't setting a solid release date just yet. Inside, all we are saying is that it will be released before the end of the year.

With ColourDock, it's a bit different. Our solution we added for scaled displays is working thus far, however it does mean that things like text and icons are a bit blurry when used on a scaled display. So, once we finish up ScreenSnap 4.2, we will start work on making the same changes to ColourDock, which will come out in version 2.3.

Now don't worry, we know that not everyone has a scaled display, and would probably like a new feature too, so we are working on a little something that should hopefully come out in that update too.
