Nimi Visuals 20120828 released

From very begining of Nimi projects, start of Nimi Visuals project - Our motto was Cause it can get even better. This simple phrase represents both humble awerness of imperfection as well as determination to improve - both qualities crucial for user oriented application development.

With this commit­ment ​in our hearts, after months of develop­ment filled with users keen inter­est ​and feedback, we are happy to introduce new­est version of Nimi Visuals.

Nimi Visuals can be downloaded from Download Nimi Visuals, sizing less than ~250kb when compressed.

x64 ​and x86 version

Only build matching processor architecture will run ​on given computer.

This version has new thumbnail service as well as event detec­tion libraries, ​and revised event pass­ing cha­in.

Starting with first, while there are methods ​for access­ing raw shar­ed surfaces (like DirectX proxies, API calls & commands) it uses different approach, resulting with small overhead and — current­ly — support­ed window size is limit­ed. On positive side it can be start­ed almost instant­ly ​and runs only while Nimi Visuals is running.

Regarding second — more events are handled, pass­ing cha­in was shorten­ed ​and multi­ple internal event notifica­tions are now possible. Finally, internal event triggering is now selective.

As ​for effects removal — 2 window fade efefcts were remov­ed, but almost certainly Aurora fade will be re-add­ed later this year after plann­ed revision.
