Release Notes


Please keep in mind this is an ALPHA version, meaning it's not finished yet and still needs some obvious fixes and improvements.


New in this release:
  • Terminate the Notifier executable if the connection is blocked by a rule. Instead of hanging around eating memory.
  • Further improved the service detection. WFN will now not by default create a service rule if it isn't sure which service (if any) the rule should apply to.
  • Better handling of more advanced rules (port ranges, special addresses, ...) Still incomplete!
  • Updated IPDatabase for better determining geo locations of (IPv4) IP-addresses.
  • Fixed the spurious columns in the service selection window.
  • When you move your mouse over the notifier window, it now becomes fully opaque (no transparency). Also, the window is now slightly more transparent by default.
  • Finally fully fixed the jumpiness of the pop-up animation of the notification window.
  • Fixed a few resource leaks and race conditions (thanks Coverity!), so WFN should be even more stable now.

Still left to do:

Just a small sampling:
  • Package WFN in a .msi installer. This will make installer and uninstaller WFN much clearer, and it also needed to do proper cleanup on uninstall.
  • Add proper Modern App handling. This will require some large internal restructuring.
  • Switch to Windows' logging instead of a logfile. Not only is this the proper thing to do, it'll also fix the still remaining issues with writing to the logfile.
  • Add internationalization and translations.
  • See if we can determine what task created a connection, instead of only pointing to taskhost.exe.
  • Add detection for fullscreen applications (e.g. games, Powerpoint), so we don't pop-up and steal focus when they are running.
  • Add a silent mode.
  • Implement the minimize to tray functionality.
  • And lots more!
