The following bugfixes/enhancements are planned for version 0.94.

  • #141: Allow ChronoWall to be Windows XP Compatible - a significant amount people coming to this website are running Windows XP. I have also gotten some emails requesting a Windows XP version. Several other beta testers have attempted to run my product on Windows XP, only to have it crash or fail to launch. Based on these events, it is evident that this operating system is still widely used and may be for quite some time. Not to mention, Windows XP doesn't even come with a wallpaper changer. Given that my product hasn't officially been launched yet, now would be the best time to make this happen. The only reason ChronoWall isn't XP compatible is because of some of the image and blur effects - they are using some functions from GDI+ 1.1. Everything else in ChronoWall uses GDI+ 1.0 which is available on all Windows platforms. Due to licensing agreements, GDI+ 1.1 is only available in Windows Vista and above. Given my knowledge of image manipulation, I can definitely write all the necessary functions from scratch. The only difficult part will be ensuring that the functions I write look exactly like the results of the ones in the GDI+ 1.1 library.
