New release of CubeDesktop NXT 2.14.0220

We’re proud to announce a new release of CubeDesktop NXT.

This release contains minor bug fixes reported by our customers and the following improvements:

  • Multiple monitor support has been enhanced. Under some circumstances, multiple monitors where detected in the wrong order, causing 3D effects to be shown displaced.
  • Windows 8.1 compatibility. Although it was already compatible with the latest version of Windows, CubeDesktop NXT now runs much better under it.
  • Better icon management.
  • Performance and memory consumption. We’ve rewritten some core code of the application, making a more efficient use of system and video resources.

We hope you enjoy this new release, which can be downloaded here.

New release of CubeDesktop NXT – 2013.0420

We’re proud to announce a new release of CubeDesktop NXT.

This new release includes the following:

+ Added a new setting to customize the initial distance of the 3d cube and all other effects.

+ Added new settings to customize the transparency of the windows and desktops.

+ Added different backgrounds for the rendering window. CubeDesktop NXT comes with six predefined backgrounds that range from light to dark ones, also allowing the user to set any picture as background.

+ Solved an issue related to windows being rendered black. Users affected by this issue can enable a new “Compatible rendering mode” that fixes it.

+ Better management of desktop icons. On some systems toggling the visibility of an icon was not working as expected.

+ Enhanced “private desktops”. Now they’re harder to view if you lost their password.

+ After a new install or an upgrade, CubeDesktop NXT will search for previous settings and let the user decide to keep them or reset to the default ones.

+ Pressing the “dot” key during the rendering will cause CubeDesktop NXT to take a screenshot and save it to your pictures folder. Screenshots are transparent PNG images and don’t contain any background information, allowing an easier integration into web pages and other design software.

+ Small bug fixes and performance improvements.

There is a hard competition to control the cloud and Oracle is working to take a good place in this race. The opportunities that the cloud offers are infinite and companies are implementing their systems thinking on how they can apply this advantages to be more competitive.

Our previous experience is related to cloud storage. We have tried various alternatives: Skydrive, Google Drive, Dropbox, Cubby… With the first two everything went as expected, the experience was very positive, with no problem at all. With the last we´ve got some problems, specially with synchronization.

If you don´t have any previous experience using the cloud try them and take advantage of the opportunities that the cloud offers.
