This is a Beta release, use at your own risk and make sure to back up your StrokesPlus.xml file. If you're new to S+, install 1.9.8 first, then replace the EXE and DLL with the contents of this release.

Change Log:

1.9.903 (Beta)
- Removed some checks which prevented certain state changes while S+ windows are open
- Fixed a whole bunch of issues due to allowing windows to be open
- Realized that the config object wasn't actually being shared by EXE and DLL, only sharing the same name even though only declared once in the DLL and exported to the EXE. So rebuilt the whole damn thing, moving all dialogs and config code into the DLL as it should be. Part of this change was some performance improvements regarding saving the config file. Now, it is only saved when updating a gesture (actual drawing), closing an S+ window (Actions, Ignored, Preferences), or exiting S+. BEfore, this was happening constantly, causing a lot of unnecessary disk IO. Note that I mean to the file, changes are saved in memory when you click Save/Apply or change nodes with Autosave checked; changes are committed to disk upon closing the window or exiting S+.
- While the DLL is larger, the EXE is smaller, resulting in the sum of the two files being overall smaller than prior release.

1.9.902 (Beta)
- Updated "Reload Config" tray menu title to "Reload Config and Lua Engine" to better distinguish the difference between it and acReloadConfig(), the latter which does not (cannot) reload the Lua state
- The Autosave checkbox in the Actions window is now honored in the Ignored window; so changing between ignored apps will save just like the Actions window, including clicking Close in the Ignored window
- The gesture preview is now redrawn after restoring the Actions window

1.9.901 (Beta)
- Added minimize buttons to Actions, Preferences, and Ignored windows
- Unhooking and rehooking mouse and keyboard while saving/refreshing config

1.9.9 (Beta)
- S+ will now allow you to draw gestures while S+ windows are open. Note that drawing is NOT captured when drawing on top of an S+ window for internal reasons; draw outside of S+ windows to test
- Added Apply button to Preferences window for saving Preferences without closing the window (to test settings before leaving the Preferences window)
- Enabled Save button in Configure Actions window, this let's you save while staying at the selected App/Action, mainly for testing a gesture/script while the window is still open
- Clicking Save in the Ignored window will do as it always has, except it refreshes the config immediately so you can test without closing the window
- Note that this is a Beta release as there were several core changes made to support this. BACKUP your StrokesPlus.xml file BEFORE USING! Don't yell at me if something goes wrong. The config and language variables are now shared between the EXE and the DLL, so there's always a possibility that something in that change may not work properly and could result in lost settings.
- Depending on your preferences relating to the gesture draw window, the S+ windows may stay on top, or fall behind other windows when testing.
- Added <Save> element to language.Preferences in Language.xml to support the Apply button in the Preferences window. Note that since this is a Beta release, I'm not yet updating the posts in the Language forum until this has been tested thoroughly.
- There is no MSI package for this release. If you're trying S+ for the first time, install 1.9.8 first then replace StrokesPlus.exe and StrokesPlus.dll from the 1.9.9b ZIP file for your platform.
- Please report bugs to the New Bugs forum, starting with [BETA] to make them easily separated from the current stable release.
