Process Lasso v8.9.8.44 Released
« Reply #7 on: August 30, 2016, 04:04:10 PM »
Process Lasso v8.9.8.44

This fixes an edge issue we've had reported from time to time. It can be caused by a couple scenarios, but basically a 'ghost' process is listed in the Process Lasso GUI, having no other attributes. Once the fault was identified in the v9 branch, we verified the fix, back-ported the code, tested the back-port, and here are releasing v8.9.8.44. It's a simple change really, and very intuitive and hard to 'go wrong', but one can never be over-confident.

Changes:

8.9.8.44FixCoreFix for rare 'ghost process instances' back-ported from v9 working dev branch
8.9.8.44ChangeLocalizationUpdate German (note: languages aren't getting updates in the v8 branch unless requestd)

Process Lasso v8.9.8.48

This fixes an important interoperability issue with Malwarebytes Anti-Ransomware Beta and further reduces CPU use by Process Lasso itself, which was of course already negligible.
