This is a stability release building on the 12.01 features release and provides increased reliability and resolutions to a number of reported problems.

New Applications

NEW: The Windows Live Mail map and scripts have been updated to include support for Windows Live Mail 2011.

Improved Operating System Support

Stability Fixes

The Dolphin Development team have been able to successfully resolve a number of crashes and stability issues thanks to SuperNova's Error Reporting System. When Error Reporting is switched on, SuperNova will attempt to gather anonymous information about any unexpected errors, and return that information to Dolphin for analysis. To help Dolphin improve SuperNova, make sure error reporting is switched on from the Customer Feedback settings found from the SuperNova Help Menu.

Multiple Monitors

FIX: Previously some laptop docking stations were not compatible with SuperNova's multiple monitors, preventing the magnification appearing on the second monitor.
FIX: The "switch monitor hotkey" label in the multiple monitors dialog has been extended to accommodate the German translation.
FIX: When selecting the "Side by Side Applications" radio button found at Visual>Multiple Monitors>Display Mode for Extended Desktop, a dialogue box appears that reminds you of the hotkey to switch between monitors. This dialogue also includes a tick box to "Don't show this message again". Previously if you ticked this check box, the same dialogue would continue to appear.


FIX: Previously the magnification may have frozen on Windows XP when locking the desktop. This bug has now been resolved.
FIX: Caps Lock may have remained on, when Mouse Wheel + CAPS LOCK has been used as a SuperNova hotkey.
