This new stable development release contains some serious improvements over the first alpha.

Also, that's really cool! I wonder if my video card is too old for that feature. ;)


Shouldn't be, it uses the same DDC/EDID mechanism that the actual OSes do, it's just a recent development that they use it to supplement the BIOS mode list, since the proliferation of widescreen displays is still a comparatively new trend and it didn't really matter as much prior.
