Version 2.5 is now available. The following bugs (B)/feature requests (FR) are handled there:
Furthermore, I would like to apologize for the long term of inactivity due to the final work on my diploma thesis and the birth of my little son this summer. Thank you for your patience.
Removed the autohide-bugs:
- a auto-hide panel can't be pulled away any more
- a auto-hide panel can't receive other windows
A new version is ready for download. It covers the latest bugs reports and support requests.
The most important fix is that of the the transparency bug. Thanks for the support. Minor other things have been fixed, too.
Some more or less important bugs concering the IsVisible property of DockWindows are removed.
Update is recommended :-).
The final version of DockDotNET is released. I skipped version 1.0 to version 2.0 to keep pace with the .NET version number. It is fully functional in both styles: VS2003 and VS2005.
The documentation was not updated because of NDOC. Up to now, there's no release that can handle .NET 2.0 completely.
The CVS archive will be substituted by SVN. It will stay active up to this version but won't be updated in the future. Please use SVN to be up to date with the developement.... read more
The core functions of the new release are ready and available through CVS now. Still missing are XML r/w of the docking tree and the new visual style (coming soon - a new package will be built also).
In the next days, we'll finish our work on the new release - shaped for .NET 2.0. New features:
- Docking to DockWindows itself possible
- XML r/w of Window hierarchy to restore the application layout
- VS 2005 visual style (may take some more time)
Please submit feature requests for the new version as soon as possible.
Finally, our first release has been started. We're proud to present a fully functional docking suite for .NET applications. Although it is marked as beta, we already use it with success in one of our own projects.
