Release Notes for Version 7.3.1.1372

jv16 PowerTools Change Log Since b1369

Feature Improvements:

  1. Added more mentions to the UI about the program using Windows scripts for data removal and that this is normal and nothing to worry about. If you see a big scary Windows Command Prompt when jv16 PowerTools is working or after the next system reboot, that is normal and nothing to worry about. 
  2. The Software Update screen now highlights the ‘Download Update’ as the default action button if an updated version is available.
  3. The message box saying a system cleanup has completed now stays visible for a longer time. Before, it could automatically close too fast, which could leave the user thinking the cleaning somehow failed.
  4. Many small improvements to the accuracy of the System Cleaner and Software Uninstaller scans.
  5. Added an option to disable the killing of running apps to the Software Uninstaller. Uninstalling apps works better the less apps there are running in the background and this was declared by the app before uninstallation started. Yet, some users were surprised that apps were closed when something was uninstalled. Therefore, this is now made more clear.
  6. Added an option to disable automatic system reboot after system cleaning or software uninstallation.
  7. System Cleaner’s category listing panel now shows the found item categories sorted by their name. Previously the order was random.
  8. Software Updater tool is now hidden and disabled by default. We are considering to remove this tool as it requires constant updates and does not seem to be worth it. If you want the tool to remain, you should voice your opinion now.
  9. Updated the Widget’s Setting screen tabs to look the same as in the main app.
  10. Comes with many updated translations, including Dutch, Finnish, Polish and Swedish.

Bug Fixes

  1. If the Windows system registry shared system file keys contain invalid data, this could lead jv16 PowerTools to list important system DLL or font files for removal. This only happened with systems that had invalid shared file registry data and was therefore a rare issue. So far, five users have reported this to have happened to them. Nevertheless, we wanted to release a quick fix for this issue.
  2. Some parts of the app’s UI were missing from the English.txt, making them impossible to translate.
  3. If the system was in idle, the jv16 PowerTools Dashboard and Widget would keep showing different apps using 1% of CPU but these apps were often changing order every few seconds. This made it annoying to read the CPU usage list. From now on, all apps using the same amount of CPU power will be displayed in the CPU usage list in alphabetical order.
  4. It was not possible to close some of the tip panels by clicking the X button at the top right corner of the panels.
  5. Leaving any of the confirmation boxes open for a long time started the automatic message box closing sequence. However, this incorrectly displayed the button captions.
  6. A message box could sometimes open behind the main app window, making it difficult to notice.
  7. Installing a new version of jv16 PowerTools over an older version could cause the Dashboard’s drive content information bars to remain gray.

Known issues

During the quality control for this version, we have also identified the following bugs or issues in the new version. These issues were found in our testing but are not yet fixed. These issues are:

  1. The text of the circular progress element in the progress screen, such as when scanning the system, can be sometimes drawn to the left side of the screen. This issue is evident if the window is resized during the progress screen being visible.
  2. Sometimes the program fails to correctly fetch the icon of a running application, causing the CPU or RAM listing areas of the Dashboard to show either a missing or incorrect icon.
  3. Scrolling the Dashboard’s list up and down immediately after the program has started, can cause the scrolling not to be smooth and the CPU usage high for a few seconds.

All of the above issues are cosmetic and will be fixed in future versions.
