• X410 'Floating Desktop' mode now supports high quality scaling. In the previous versions, the 'High Quality' option in 'DPI scaling' setting was only applicable to Linux GUI apps running in Windowed Apps mode. The same high quality scaling option is now also available for the Floating Desktop mode.

    Please note that when the high quality scaling option is enabled, X410 uses more computing resources and memories. It may also produce sharper images than you would prefer. Hence try both 'Default' and 'High Quality' options first (when you change the option in X410 system tray icon settings, it's immediately applied to the desktop window), and select an appropriate option for your needs. For your information, if you simply want crisper rendering output for your Linux desktop and GUI apps, we recommend setting the DPI scaling option to 'None' and let the GUI apps scale themselves as outlined in the following post:

    Running X410 on HiDPI Screens

  • Improved interoperations with X-Window desktop shells and window managers in Floating Desktop mode. You are now less likely to see a corrupted background or desktop layout even when you resize the main X410 desktop window.

  • You should no longer see 'charset' or 'fontset' related warning messages (ex. Warning: Missing charsets in String to FontSet conversion) when starting a classic X-Window app such as xclock.

  • Improved positioning popup windows and dropdown menus for Linux GUI apps running in Windowed Apps mode with X410 DPI scaling option turned on. When the DPI scaling option is enabled, there can be coordinate conversion errors, i.e., converting native non-scaled position coordinates from a Linux GUI app to the actual scaled display coordinates in Windows and vice versa. Such errors can result in unexpected behavior (ex. unexpected initial selection in a dropdown menu). We have updated the conversion routines in X410 and improved mitigating such errors.

  • Improved maintaining the window stacking order for Linux GUI apps running in X410 Windowed Apps mode. This improvement should make Linux GUI apps behave more seamlessly alongside Windows apps.
