7+ Taskbar Tweaker for Windows 8.1 Update 1: early alpha version

An update for Windows 8.1, called Update 1 or the Spring Update, was officially released by Microsoft a couple of days ago. This update broke compatibility with 7+ Taskbar Tweaker. I’ve published a post, 7+ Taskbar Tweaker and Windows 8.1 Update 1, explaining the reasons for the breakage.

Today, I’m happy to announce that the first pre-release alpha version is available for testing! If you have donated for the effort, you can get the link here (May 10: link removed).

Currently, only the 32-bit version is available. I hope to get the 64-bit version done within the following week. Stay tuned!

Update (April 17): The 64-bit version is available as well! Please try it, and report any issues you stumble upon.

Update (April 26): A new version is available, which fixes a couple of issues. Also, this is the first alpha version which can be installed, unlike previous alpha version which were available as portable versions only.

Update (May 2): A public beta version is available here.

Update (May 10): 7+ Taskbar Tweaker v4.5, a stable version with Windows 8.1 Update 1 support, was released.

    Thanks RaMMicHaeL you rule.
    Your program, or the lack of it actually, for 8.1 update 1 was the only thing holding me back from upgrading.
    The vanilla taskbar is just horrible and I can’t imagine using it ever again.

    • It’s not different than the most recent beta, so it shouldn’t make a difference. Be aware, though, that you’re the only user to report this kind of issue, so perhaps there’s a problem with your OS after all.
