What's new in DU Meter?
January 17, 2024 :: DU Meter 8.05 has been released.
- DU Meter Mini-mode window in "always on top" mode is no longer placed below the Windows taskbar.
- Better support for Windows 11.
- The experimental Taskbar band-like mode has been removed: this was never a supported feature in Windows 11, we recommend using third-party tools like StartAllBack to restore the Windows 10-style Taskbar.
- Installer improvements; the installation on unsupported operating systems is now blocked.
- Several smaller bug fixes and improvements.
February 5, 2022 :: DU Meter 8.01 has been released.
- Windows 11 is now a supported operating system for DU Meter.
- Windows Server 2022 and 2019 are now supported as well.
- Support for high-DPI displays (4K resolution and larger).
- Support for multiple displays with varying DPI configurations (when the window scaling is not the same across all displays)
- Support for dark and light color schemes, including auto-switching when Windows configuration is changed.
- Fixes to taskbar band on Windows 10 to support the light color scheme.
- Restyling of DU Meter window to better align with Windows 10 and 11 styles.
- New dark and light color schemes to better match Windows 10 and 11 color schemes.
- Fix to click-through mode when the high-contrast mode is enabled.
- Experimental support for Taskbar band-like mode on Windows 11: Since Microsoft has completely removed Taskbar bands support in Windows 11, it's impossible to achieve full parity with Windows 10 for this feature.
- Numerous smaller bug fixes and improvements.
