New in version 1.1.0 Beta (June 5th, 2007)

  • NetMeter won't be visible in Windows' Alt-Tab list anymore when "Show window caption" is disabled
  • On systems with multiple monitors NetMeter will now restore on the monitor it was on last
  • On startup NetMeter will now check if the graph window is inside the visible desktop area. If not, the position will be reset to the default values
  • Warning messages are now centered on the desktop
  • Fixed option "Notify monitoring problems" (it was broken in version 1.0.0)
  • On Windows 2000 and newer, NetMeter now uses a TrueType font for all menus (ClearType!)
  • Added option "Use old display unit descriptions". If enabled it will display "KB" instead of "KiB" for example. This option has no effect on traffic calculation.
  • It is now possible to choose between 4 different display units: Kilobit, Kibibit, Kilobyte and Kibibyte
  • It is now possible to change the display unit for the totals menu
  • Added display units "Terabit", "Tebibit", "Terabyte" and "Tebibyte"

  • Added proper CSV import/export function for traffic log data. To see the proper syntax for the CSV-file simply use the export function and edit the exported file.
  • All traffic values have to be stated in bytes. Importing will erase all previously existing log data.
  • Added option "Reset all logs". Use with caution!
  • Replaced old tray icons by new dynamic download upload gauges. The new gauges are tied to the scaling options of the "big" graph window. It is possible to switch back to the old style static icons via the options menu.
  • Fixed a bug in calculation of display terms with large values (around the Terabyte area). NetMeter can handle values in the Terabyte range and above now.
  • Fixed a bug that caused the UL/DL labels to be hidden although there was enough space within the window.
  • Fixed a bug that caused the tray icon hint to display no interface description when "All Interfaces (No Loopback, No Duplicates)" was selected.

New in version 1.0.0 Beta 1a (June 5th, 2007)

  • Added the new option "All Interfaces (No Loopback, No Duplicates)". Using the option "All Interfaces" on Vista can result in multiplied traffic readings. Up to Windows XP any given MAC-address was only present once in the list of network interfaces reporded by the IP-Helper API. On Vista there are additional virtual interfaces for every physical adapter which all have identical MAC addresses. If you choose above mentioned option NetMeter will only monitor the first adapter with a given MAC-address.
  • Fixed the problem with saving the .ini and traffic logfile on Windows Vista. On Vista all variable data is now stored in the directory %USERPROFILE%AppDataRoamingNetMeter
  • "Average left per day" statistic should now be correct
  • Added loopback device to interface-list
  • Several small bugfixes
