LCDHost Alpha 37

Just a quick fix to remove the LH_Graph crash in A36.

LCDHost Alpha 36

Whats new in LCDHost 0.0.36:

  • Added LCDHost platform to the About box
  • Update plugin error messages when reloading
  • Remove output devices that fail to open() cleanly
  • Serialize plugin shutdown and helper threads
  • Kill HID timer before stopping HIDAPI
  • Unify exit code for OSX dock menu
  • Data linking propagation fixes
  • Improved –hidden and systray handling, especially on Linux
  • Race condition in CPU load calculations could return -NAN at startup
  • LH_LgLcdMan: allow both 32 and 64 bit linking
  • LH_LCoreReboot: rewritten so it no longer requires admin privileges
  • LH_Lg320x240: tweak error message delivery
  • LH_DriveStats: added free/used size percentage
  • LH_LgBacklight now polls connected devices for backlight changes

  • LH_Text: added network total received/sent count

Always back-up your layouts before updating.

LCDHost Alpha 35

Please note that both Windows and Linux versions are now 64-bit. The auto-updater will not notify a 32-bit user about a 64-bit version, so changing from 32 to 64-bit versions will require you to manually download a copy.

The changes required to allow Qt 5.2.1 to be used required extensive refactoring, so keep a copy of LCDHost Alpha 34 in case this version breaks your layouts or crashes.

Whats new in LCDHost 0.0.35:

  • Added --disable-systray and --enable-systray to allow overriding
    the default platform setting (enabled on Windows/Mac, disabled on Linux)
  • Updated to Qt 5.2.1
  • Windows version is now 64-bit, compiled with VS2012
  • Linux version is again 64-bit, built on Debian 7.1
  • Removed dependency on OpenSSL
  • Double-clicking the system tray icon restores the main window
  • Fixed drive listing in LH_DriveStats
  • Fixed LH_Bar trying to open nonexistant image files
  • Fixed LH_LogicBox attempting to hide itself before initialized
  • Fixed warning about memory information not being present on startup
  • Fixed RSS text trying to render itself before initialized
  • LH_WeatherData() had a constructor that did not initialize all members
  • Serialize plugin loading to prevent Qt font engine data races on OS/X

Always back-up your layouts before updating. If weather info doesn’t show properly, change the location setting for the LH_Weather plugin.
