We just pushed version 0.4.4 which fixes some things and also makes it even tougher than before.
- In Windows, the uninstaller will ask either for the user’s registration password or API key before proceeding. This is a request we received in the early days, so we’re glad to finally deliver as requested. On a sidenote, remember you can choose to not generate Start Menu entries for Prey during installation.
- Lots of path fixes in all OSs. In Windows there shouldn’t be any more problems running Prey from a path containing spaces (e.g. C:\Program Files).
- Fixes for Geo in Linux for Access Points with weird chars. Also, the module now supports all output formats from iwconfig.
- Secure module doesn’t delete browsers’ data, it simply appends .backup so you won’t lose any information if you activate the module by mistake.
- Interface improvements for Configurator in Linux. Thanks Delwin for all the code!
- Fixes for Windows Service mode 64 bit Windows, which prevented some modules from working correctly (such as alert).
- No more WScript for Alert’s message box in Windows. We dumped it for a much stronger C version.
- Prey Lock in Windows and Linux has been greatly improved. Always on top, full screen support and Alt-Tab protection, among other things.
- When unlocking with the right password, the Lock module will be automatically deactivated on the Control Panel.
- System module enhancements. RAM check in 2000/XP has been fixed. Also, we now grab Motherboard information in PCs (Windows and Linux), as they contain a different set of Serial Numbers/Versions than the core system’s info.
- Better char escaping logic for standalone emails. Thanks Tom Wood for this one!
