MacroGoblin 1.9.5.0 Released - Test Version

This should now be downloadable in "My Downloads".

Summary
This is small upgrade (test release) that is part of a series of upgrades leading to MacroGoblin 2.0. It is an  intermediate version for testing but should also be usable for those who want to make macros with the new features. If you find a bug please post it in the Test Release section or send it to [email protected] Members can download the test in "MyDownloads".

The purpose of this update was to implement data compression for file size and network data transfer. The result is that MacroGoblin files now are 8+ times smaller. This is great especially if you have many long macro recordings, which create a lot of commands. Compression is also used when the host updates clients with data. This can reduce network transfer time by 8 or more times.


Highlights
  • Save File Compressed- .mg files are now saved, by default, using data compression. The result is that MacroGoblin files now are 8+ times smaller. When you load up a .mg file MacroGoblin will detect whether or not compression was used automatically and load it up either way. You can still save the file w/out data compression by turning off file data compression in the Program Settings.
  • Updating Client with Data Compression - Client data is now compressed before it is sent to the client(s). This can reduce network transfer time by 8 or more times.
  • Recording Routines on Client Compression - When you record a routine using a client computer, that data is now sent to the host compressed. This can reduce transfer speeds by 8+ times.
