What's new in Version Build 147 released in July 2023

  • I'm pleased to announce that the ShixNOTE home page is now secured with an SSL certificate. This means all data transferred between the web server and browser remains private and integral. This is an important step in ensuring the security and privacy of users. Enjoy a safer browsing experience!
  • On the program start new process is started which is scanning your LAN (network neighborhood). This new scanning program finds all devices in your LAN but it will save only computer names and IP addresses assigned, either automatically by DHCP, or by manual configuration. When you click on the note menu item Send note to other, dialog will appear, where you will see in the Network Neighborhood list, all computers found in your LAN. It doesn't mean that every computer has ShixxNOTE installed on it.
  • On the program start Reading network neighborhood dialog doesn't freeze other windows and now you can see a small video icon on how the program is scanning your network neighborhood.
  • New refreshing images are added to the main program settings dialog. General settings, Default note settings, and Network settings now are redesigned. It looks cool now especially Network settings where there are plenty of options that you can change.
  • There is no more splash image on program startup and also no more option in the General settings dialog to remove it.
  • No more licence-type version. You can now install a program version on all computers in your network neighborhood. You can install ShixxNOTE registered version in your home or office LAN.

What's new in Version Build 140 released in May 2018

  • When sending note to client which doesn't have ShixxNOTE program installed, program server side will use MSG command to send the message over local network. This feature works only when ShixxNOTE program is running on Windows 7, Windows 10, or Windows 11. Example would be equivalent of writing this command in Command Prompt window:

    MSG * /server:TEST-LAPTOP "Hello user !!!"

    Where character * in command is wildcard for all users on recipient computer named TEST-PC. So the result of the command above would be Window popup dialog on the client computer named TEST-PC located in your network neighborhood.
  • When program is once installed it will start itself on every Windows startup.
  • On first program start default blank blue theme note is created in the top left corner of your desktop screen. ShixxNOTE tray icon will be first time hidden so if you want to see main program menu including "Settings" dialog you will need to right mouse click on ShixxNOTE icon located near the clock (but hidden because it was never used before).
