Panic Button Version 2.6 Out !

Hello there ! :-)

My name is GrosBedo (alias GBO), the new developper for Panic Button ;-)

This release is the first of many I will produce. It fixes all the bugs users submitted, plus many others I've encountered, so now you shouldn't see any flaw in this software (I'm a pro at debunking exploits ;p). I've added many features and little details that will make this software much more useable and comfortable, like the new flashy icon yelling at you to click it !... read more

Panic Button has a blog

Panic Button's web site is now a blog. Since there wasn't much on the web site, I decided it made more sense to turn it into a blog. The idea is that I can keep users informed of what is going on, what I'm working on, etc. And, of course, users can leave comments to let me know what they think.

Bug in version 2.0 setup.exe fixed

A bug in the setup executable for version 2.0 (1282106) has now been fixed.

The bug meant that the startup shortcut was not created properly, so that Panic Button did not start when a user logged on. This bug has now been fixed, and the setup.exe file has been replaced with a working copy.
