I don't want to bother anybody, but this is such a nice project and it looks like it's stopped since more than a month. If you don't have the time to keep up– do you need any assistance?

I'd be very unhappy if this project would die slowly. And I guess many others agree as well.

I also would be very disapointed to see this project be dropped as I depend on it daily. I agree that a quick status - been busy, working on issues... etc. would be great! I would hate to have to find a replacement - wait there is none - keep up the great work please...

Me too. All thumbs up !!!! There is no other software like Virtual Desktop Manager !!!!!!! Thanks a lot again for this great program.

You don't need to worry. I'm still here and alive. I was busy with final exams in the last month and have been working on other project in the last two weeks. However, I promise to get another release out soon. I was working with someone via email to implement a better window menu that actually uses system menus.

On the other hand, if anyone has something to contribute to the project, don't be shy. I normally spend a few weeks solely on other projects, and then churn out a new VVDM release in a single weekend when I get the time. If I were to work on VVDM all the time, it would be well past 0.9 by now.

The shadows remaining is very bad and vvd is crashing more with .9 than any other version so far :(

Is there a road map or any kind of release schedule... ? This was my productivity edge but its becoming a hindrance. I come here week after week hoping for a patch to this once specific issue but nothing (I know what do I expect for free/beta... but your filling a need here, its just falling short of my hopes.)

Being a programmer myself I know that life sometimes takes precedence and I wish I knew anything about this code base to lend a hand, but my experience is in client/server, not desktop.

How long would it take to fix the shadows bug, its probably just a regression ? Please I beg of thee, desperation ensues!

I have added logic to only hide shadows and not to ever show them on a desktop switch. It should work with all standard system shadows (ex. used for tooltips, Messenger, and the start menu). If you still have any problems, let me know. I also fixed per-desktop backgrounds.
