Happy new year 2019 to all our users out there on planet Earth.
A year ago we released the first beta version of the Magic Utilities 3.
A huge fan drew this lovely "Magic Utilities Knight". Thank you so much!
We spent the last month working a lot on an all new Bluetooth driver initialization which should finally fix all scrolling issues. For all Magic Mouse and Magic Trackpad users this will make a big difference.
There is also an individual driver restart feature with a single click.
2018 has been a big year for the Magic Utilities. Version 3 with lots of new features arrived and most of you like it. After developing a new kernel driver framework in 2017, it started in January 2018 with beta testing until August with the first public release. There had been a few unexpected issues, but most of them have been fixed by now.
We are looking forward to a promising new year 2019 with lots of improvements.
Thank you for your valuable feedback, without YOU the Magic Utilities would miss half of its magic.
We wish you a magical Christmas and a fantastic year 2019.
We actually started to work on better keyboard support to fix the swapped-keys issue. Sounds simple, but isn't. The Magic keyboard comes in 25 international keyboard layouts and three mechanical layouts (ISO, ANSI and JIP). While we get all the required pieces together, smooth scrolling initialization for mouse and trackpad strikes back.
We actually thought with release 18.104.22.168 it's finally solved. While it's much better it may still happen that Smooth scrolling doesn't work. There is no proper documentation and zero example code available.
As this potentially affects most of our users, we are back on the Smooth scrolling topic and made finally good progress. As a nice side effect you don't need to click or press a key to (re)connect to Bluetooth anymore. The Bluetooth connection is instant, except you power-cycle your device.
