WhatPulse 2.1b3
Hi,

You can now download WhatPulse 2.1 beta 3 from here:

- Windows: http://files.whatpulse.org/beta/whatpulse-win-2.1b3.exe
- OSX: http://files.whatpulse.org/beta/whatpulse-mac-2.1b3.dmg
- Linux 32bit: http://files.whatpulse.org/beta/whatpuls...1b3.tar.gz
- Linux 64bit: http://files.whatpulse.org/beta/whatpuls...1b3.tar.gz

This is probably going to be the last 2.1 beta, as I've got good confidence that most issues and random crashes have been resolved. As per usual, changelog is below! Let me know how it runs for you.

Due to database consistency checks, please pulse before updating! It might detect that your database is not consistent, which means it needs to rebuild it.

2.1b3
- Crash Fix: Networking code has been improved. This should stop most random client crashes.
- Crash Fix: Don't use country statistics when GeoIP database is updating
- Improvement: Require SSL libraries instead of just displaying a warning. (without SSL the libraries the account session is not saved)
- Improvement / Crash Fix: Check database integrity when starting and error when both the database and backup are corrupted. In previous versions, the client continued and displayed an unclear Visual Studio error on Windows.
- Improvement: Move all account data to whatpulse.wpw file instead of the SQLite database. So if there's ever anything wrong with the database, the unpulsed stats are not affected.
- Linux: Don't crash if pf_ring (network) is not available
- Linux: Display warning if input device permissions are not set up correctly
- Windows: Reset tray icon after 10 seconds when going to an application that the WhatPulse client cannot read. Otherwise the blink icon gets stuck.
- Windows: Reset the input hook when computer comes back from a sleep/hibernation to make sure Windows keeps sending input events.

2.1b2
- Windows: Update to WinPcap 4.1.3 for Windows 8 support.
- Windows: XP is now better supported for network & input per application stats.
- Windows: Lose some major weight (app&dll sizes) by compressing the client files.
- Input: Add a time period selector for per application stats.
- Network: The GeoIP database (per country stats) is now updated every 6 weeks.
- Network: Add a time period selector for per country stats.
- Generate a file called app.log in the %LOCALAPPDATA% directory for debugging.

2.1b1
- You can now see your keys/clicks on a per application basis.
- The login procedure has been simplified to be a breeze. You can add computers from the wizard and it auto detects your computer name.
- Revamped database control; this means the database is more stable, secure and doesn't interfere with your input. (freezing)
- Network monitoring performance has been improved.
- There is now a client updater included, which will notify you when a new version is released and will show the changes made. On OSX and Windows, it can automatically update the client.
- On Linux, the client will check whether it has the proper permissions for network monitoring and ask you whether it should correct those permissions.
- On Windows, there is a new option to run the client as administrator. This will allow the client to catch keys/clicks in applications that are also running as administrator. (enable this option when not all keys/clicks are counted)
- Many, many, many, many small tweaks and fixes.

RE: WhatPulse 2.1b3
Thanks for the update smitmartijn.

I am afraid I had 2-3 random crashes within the first hour. Here is my app.log.

RE: WhatPulse 2.1b3
What happens when you turn off network stats? I have a feeling WinPcap is still unstable on Windows 8.

RE: WhatPulse 2.1b3
Windows 8 64bit, installed the update, and within minutes, first crash...

Whatpulse stopped working...

RE: WhatPulse 2.1b3
I have some really good news! Smile

My client stopped crashing after disabling only "Per country" & "Per application" statistics. Per interface stats are enabled and working fine. Smile

Windows 8/64bit

That sounds plausible, I don't think we've looked at the per country stats..Windows 8 seems to have issues with the lookup method. Gonna dive into that part!

What about you Jo0Lz - could you only disable country stats and see how that behaves?

RE: WhatPulse 2.1b3
I am testing with per country and per application switched off.

Looking at those logs, one is running as admin and the other isn't. Which should it be and why aren't they the same?

Cheers!
