Thanks to my buddy Marc I downloaded and installed version 1.8.1 of Konfabulator which addresses all of these issues:

  • Reduced our memory footprint in Task Manager.
  • Upgraded the URL object to support POSTing, outputting to a file and returning the HTTP response code.
  • Made the Below window level stick to the desktop when choosing Show Desktop from the Task Bar.
  • We now react properly to monitor configuration changes and move widgets appropriately. We also remember where they were per screen config.
  • We now store our unzipped widgets in the local app data folder, not the system’s temporary folder. This avoids the problems people experience when running temp file cleaners, essentially wiping out all the support files for a running widget.
  • Fixed problem where click-through was not working. This meant you had to click twice if a widget was not already active.
  • Redid CPU monitoring code to avoid issues with performance counters. It should work on all machines now.
  • Attempted to solve the occasional spontaneous unregistering issue. If you do become unregistered after installing this release, enter your registration again. We have an alternate solution in place, so if you re-register, it will do it a bit differently and will hopefully be permanent.
  • Added automatic check for updates, with ability to ‘skip’ a version.

Thank you Marc and the Konfabulator people!  My desktop now knows when I rotate the screen or change the resolution and all my widgets shift accordingly.  Great update!

  1. Yep, the new version is great. Love how it keeps its settings depending on the rotation on my tablet.

    Now we just need a tip aware search bar! :)
