Process Lasso 7.0 released, fine-tunes ProBalance Insights module, tweaks user interface
Version 7.0 builds on recent releases, improving the newly added ProBalance Insights tool with the promise of improved accuracy for its embedded responsiveness meter, plus overhauling various user interface elements.
The ProBalance Insights module, added in version 6.9.8, has been overhauled, and can now be launched direct from the main user interface via a dedicated button. The module, which shows per-process ProBalance statistics, is a key tool for users wishing to understand how Process Lasso has helped rein in overzealous processes.
Workstation Edition users gain a new manual Gaming Mode toggle to the program’s Taskbar Notification area menu, while a new Gaming Mode graph overlay indicator has also been added.
Total Process I/O has been added as a criteria to be placed in the Active Process lists along, and is joined by a new Delta I/O column.
The Active Processes lists has also been tweaked to deliver better performance and resolve issues with some columns not updating in certain circumstances.
Other notable GUI changes see the System Try icon changes on ProBalance restraint as well as a minor restructure of both process context and main application menus – for example, the context menu’s two options for terminating processes have also been consolidated into a single Terminate entry, which basically replaces the previously labelled Force Terminate command.
The update is rounded off with further minor tweaks and bug fixes, covering both installer and user interface. Italian and Japanese languages have also been updated.
Process Lasso 7.0 and Process Lasso 7.0 (64-bit) are both available as free downloads for PCs running Windows 2000 or later. The program functions in trial version mode for the fully featured Pro version before reverting to a cut-down Free build for personal and non-commercial use.
