Optimizing?

Want have fun optimizing your applications?

Using the performance optimization tools in SkyOS you can profile your own applications as well as the entire system. By adding your own dynamic measure points into your application or using the hundreds of available system measure points you can visualize how your application interacts with the rest of the system.

This is a screenshot which was made while optimizing the ISS Service communication with the SkyOS Mediaplayer:

The 3rd-Party Beta Developer Program is already starting to turn out some cool applications. Hot on the heels of SkyGajim comes the SkyFTP, a simple graphical FTP application, and SkyDock, an application for creating quick links to commonly-used applications. Click on the links to see each of the applications in action. Great work, keep the great applications coming!

Mouse gestures

Submitted by Robert Szeleney on Mon, 2005-09-12 12:13.



Support for mouse gesture recognition has been implemented. By using the System Manager "Gesture" plugin you can add, remove and configure your own mouse gestures. Whenever SkyOS recognizes a conigured mouse gesture, the desired action is performed. You can select from many pre-configured actions like: Maximize/Minimize window, close application, launch application, ...

The entire gesture recognition is fully intergrated into SkyOS/SkyGI as a service application which can easily be enabled/disabled with the System Manager "Services" plugin.
