New Version tbbmeter 0.9.8.0


[link to this post]
 
Sorry for a second update inside a week folks.

CHANGES
-------------
1. The ISPA testing message did not display correctly for people with large font sizes (bigger than 110% of normal), this has been resolved.
2. A number of other windows have had similar font sizing issues fixed.
3. New functionality, application will display in the top right of the graph "MOBILE CONNECTION" if it detects that Internet access is via a mobile broadband connection. This should work for both dongles plugged directly into the PC, and mobile routers.
4. For those who want to test their upload and download easily, if the main tbbmeter graph window has input focus (i.e. you've clicked on it) then CTRL SHIFT F2 will manually initiate the automated testing system)

COMING SOON
------------------
New installers on the thinkbroadband.com website that will offer the latest version for download, and be compatible with Windows 7 Service Pack 1.

Version 0.9.8.1

Very sorry for problem some people had.

If you disagreed to the automatic testing, the question would be re-asked every few hours. It should not be doing this, there was some faulty logic in the code.

It arose due to logic surrounding a mechanism that will allow us to in a few weeks, to just ask people to reconsider testing. Hope is that we never have to do that, i.e. get enough regular tests to be able to build a picture of ISP performance.

If you are with a smaller provider it is particularly important, since many test systems ignore the smaller providers.
