Changes in Rainmeter 3.2
July 14, 2014 - Revision 2302
Fixed Rainmeter: Corrected an issue where the #SCREENAREAWIDTH# / #SCREENAREAHEIGHT# built-in variables would not initially detect the monitor the skin was loaded on until a refresh.
Fixed Layouts: Corrected an issue where the list of Layouts in Manage / Layouts could be off by one if the @Backup Layout was missing.
Fixed Power plugin: Corrected a STATUS issue when the battery level is higher than "low", but not currently charging.
Changed Language: Updates to Russian language.
v184.108.40.2062 [18 Nov 2012]
FileView plugin. This powerful new plugin will index and gather information about all files and folders in a defined path. Information supported includes the path, name, size, type, date, and icon. Commands can be used to scroll through the index of files, move up and down in the folder tree, and select files for display or opening with the associated program.
Added new ClipString=2 setting and new ClipStringW / ClipStringH options. This will allow for more dynamic clipping and wrapping of a string while sizing the containing meter to accommodate the entire contents. Details are at Change Announcements.
Added new Mouse Actions to support the scroll wheel. Details are at Change Announcements.
Added new Mouse Variables. These are "macro" variables used in the context of a mouse click action to provide the current X and Y position of the mouse cursor relative to the meter or skin in pixels or a percentage. Details are at Change Announcements.
Added new OnUpdateAction command to Skins, Meters and Measures. This will allow an action to take place when the element is updated normally or by any bang.
Added new OnChangeAction command to Measures. This will allow an action to take place when the value of a measure changes.
Added new OnFocusAction and OnUnFocusAction options to the [Rainmeter] section of the skin, to execute actions when a skin gains or loses focus (by clicking it) in Windows.
Added "*" as a wildcard parameter to the !UpdateMeasure and !UpdateMeter bangs to immediately update all measures and meters.
Changed the behavior of the WebParser ProxyServer option to better handle how WebParser interacts with Internet Explorer for proxy management.
v220.127.116.117 [8 Nov 2012]
- Changed illustro: The RSS/Atom reader skin has been removed from the default illustro skins and layout on a new installation of Rainmeter. This is due to the pending end of the "Google Reader" service from Google on July 1st. Existing Rainmeter installations will not be effected.
v18.104.22.1688 [26 Jul 2012]
- Fixed Rainmeter: Fixed an issue with focus on tray context menu.
- Changed Context: Changed "Help" to open the new Rainmeter Documentation.
v22.214.171.1243 [10 Oct 2011]
-Alt Tab now displays the Rainmeter icon for the Manage/About dialogs.
-NowPlaying.dll: iTunes shuffle state change now detected immediately.
-Additonal localization / language support.
-Changed the behavior of AlwaysOnTop / Z-Position settings.
-Stay Topmost, Topmost, Normal and On Desktop now all will remain visible when Windows "Show Desktop" or "Win M / Win D" is used. The behavior otherwise remains the same. This change can be globally overriden (for all skins) by seting NormalStayDesktop=0 in the [Rainmeter] section of Rainmeter.ini. This should eliminate the need to set skins to "On Desktop" in most cases, other than pure "background" skins that you want to remain behind other skins at all times.
-CoreTemp.dll: Fixed that Scale, NumOfDecimals, etc. didn't work with -MeasureName=SomeCoreTempMeasure.
This change may slightly change the display of results (e.g. CpuSpeed will now be displayed without decimals by default, while it always showed two decimals previously)
-Fixed a Meter=Button problem with buttons not working in some cases, caused by an earlier update.
-Fixed a problem where the new "position" was not being saved after a refresh when !ZPos was used.
-Fixed an infinite loop / hang when Rainmeter.exe is called with a bang containing square brackets (e.g. Rainmeter.exe !Bang "[Text]")
-Made some log messages more consistent.
* Fixed that album name and cover were not always displayed with Winamp.
* Shuffle and repeat state is now rechecked on track change with iTunes.
* Improved performance when reading file tags/cover,
* Updated iTunes SDK files.
-Fixed that the Measures panel in the About dialog sometimes displayed incorrect values.

-WebParser: Fixed a RegExp failure if the data contained embedded NULL characters.
