Thank you guys, I appreciate that! 

I finally released 4.72 to the public just now… it is the exact same 4.72 version that I posted before, so if you have already installed this version, there is no reason to reinstall.

VS 5.0 is coming along really well… it should be finished within a month or two at the most, possibly sooner.  And yes, you will be able to maximize the gui finally 😉… that part is almost finished.

BTW, I just discovered today that for the last couple of weeks, our spam filter went a little crazy and sent quite a few messages to spam.  So if you sent an email and did not hear back, that is why… so please try to email again.  The spam filters are a little more relaxed now, so we should be good to go.

Thank you guys, I will catch up asap!!!

Sounds like an opening for a SpamJuJu AI  ;D

"risk" an update
Curious, What issues have there been that would lead you to believe there's a "risk"?
You don't mention what OS you're running.

Not much "risk"... and a changelog wouldn't help if there was an issue. If I was concerned about "dodgy" software (which does not describe VS) I would either...

1. Not install it, Period,
2. Image my PC before installing,
3. Wait a week to see if issues are posted here on the forum.

If you don't trust VS, why is it installed on your PC?

Hey everyone!  I was going to wait until the new VoodooAi implementation was complete before releasing a 5.0 beta, but I figured it would be good to release a beta now, that way we can start isolating any bugs that might have been created.  Basically, all of the changes have been made except for the new VoodooAi implementation, which I am working on now… and the changes made so far in the 4.99 beta will probably have a few minor bugs, and it will be nice to fix them in the next few weeks while I finish up the new VoodooAi implementation.

The gui can now be maximized and it has features that are similar to the “Windows Snap” feature.  But since the VS gui is borderless, I had to create my own.  Also, I removed the VoodooShield Colors feature so that we can update the gui soon with one of MikeV’s designs… which we should be able to do sooner than later.  We really did not need the VS Color feature anyway… it was kind of an early 2000’s relic feature anyway 😉.

I removed a couple of entries from the installer that I do not believe we need anymore.  So while you guys can install over the top if you want, it would be helpful if you uninstall VS first, then reboot, then install the 4.99 beta.  You can keep your settings and logs when you uninstall.  But the important thing is to see if everything functions normally after a clean install, since I removed the entries from the installer that I do not believe we need anymore.

I still need to fix the blacklist and VoodooAi sorting in settings… will do this soon.

The Per User Settings should be working correctly too now… but if anyone has a problem with this feature, please let me know.

The only other thing that I have not done is to debug with Windows 10 Controlled Folder Access.  Can you guys please let me know if VS 4.99 is working properly with Controlled Folder Access?

Other than that, hopefully I am not forgetting anything, but if there is something that needs to be fixed or changed, please let me know!  Thank you guys!

@VoodooShield - So far so good. I'm not using WD at the moment so I can't test CFA. Maybe I'll get to it before long.

BTW: Is there a new User Guide planned for sometime down the road?  beta

Hello Dan,

I did a clean uninstall except removing the settings and everything seems to be running fine so far on Win 8.1 home.
One thing please, could you check your PM here and reply to what I found to happen on 2/13/2019.
Love the max gui which you can use the arrow buttons to move in any direction..  :)

Thank you and I'm looking forward to reporting anything unusual and the 5.0 version coming in the future!

Regards,
Hardhead
