The final release of Rainmeter version 3.3 was released. With this program in real time all kinds of useful but also less sensible information appears on the desktop, such as free hard disk space, network activity, and whether new e-mail. Functional applets can also be used for example to make notes or to send them tweets. The main changes that have been made can be found below in version 3.3.
Added new Inline Options features to the string gauge. This will allow “in-line” formatting of part or all of a string, and adds several at new formatting options-including a color gradient. Example skins demonstrating the features can be found at Change Announcements.
Added new Loop measure. This will create a looping counter between two numbers. The walk will start at StartValue end at EndValue increment by Increment and will loop LoopCount (or endless) times. Details and examples can be found at Change Announcements.
“Best” network values
Net measures: Changed the accepted values for the Interface option to accept new values or “Best” How many followers will automatically use the active network interface, or a string value of the name of the Desired Network Interface Controller (NIC).
SysInfo plugin: Changed the values accepted for the SysInfoData option with network related SysInfoType options to accept new values or “Best” How many followers will automatically use the active network interface, or a string value of the name of the Desired Network Interface Controller (NIC) .
Action Timer plugin
Added the Action Timer plugin to the Rainmeter build. This plugin can be used to support animations and transitions meters. Details and examples can be found at Action Timer Plugin and Action Timer forum post.
Added the RunCommand plugin to the Rainmeter build. This plugin can be used to execute and Obtain values from external commands and programs. Details and examples can be found at RunCommand Plugin and RunCommand forum post.
Skin Width / Height Skin
Added new Skin Width and Skin Height options to the [Rainmeter] section of a skin. This will constrain the skin to the dimensions defined, Either the width, the height, or both. Any part of a meter or meter positioned outside the defined boundaries will be truncated. Dynamic Window Size will be ignored for the defined dimension (s), and gauges That would normally display as “outside” the skin will be truncated by the “fixed” skin dimensions.
This can be very useful for having some meter (s) Initially defined outside the left / top / right / bottom boundaries of the skin, and then pop or slide into view on mouse or measure actions. An example skin demonstrating how this might be used is at Change Announcements.
Skin installer plugin version
The Skin Installer application, used to install files in .rmskin Rainmeter, HAS BEEN modified so it will by default not replace a newer version of an included 3rd-party plug-in with an older version. This is based on the “File version” information in the compiled .dll file (s), and is to protect users from having an old plug in a .rmskin replace a newer version.
It is Very Important That All 3rd-party plugin authors keep up to date with version information in Their plugin releases. Going forward, if an author releases a new version of Their plugin, but does not change the version number information in the .dll, it will not be installed by Rainmeter if the end-user already Has The older version of the plugin.
Important Note about HWiNFO
If you are using the HWiNFO plugin for Rainmeter, you must upgrade to the latest 3.0 version of the plugin and SharedMemoryViewer.exe found in That post. If you have distributed skins using the plugin, you shouldering update them for your users. Skins using older versions of the plugin HWiNFO May Fail When users upgrade to Rainmeter 3.3.
