Finally, the new update is now there. This will be one of the last "beta" release, I guess.
The app got a new logo and an import/export function as already anounced earlier. It has two predefined layouts that are loaded automatically on first start. One layout just contains some examples of what you can do (Widgets, designs, actions) while with the other one you can control the mouse and volume of Windows plus some basic keys. This is also more of for demonstration than for real application but you can modify the layouts as you like.
I put a short installation guide to use the System layout on http://terremote.christophergertz.de/tutorials/system
. Once you have configured your EventGhost sender and receiver plugin, the necessary macros can be added to EventGhost just by copy/paste. It should be fairly easy. Please report if this does not work for you.
The "System" layout demonstrates a feature of the app that I did not yet tell anyone about, but is actually one of the main features that maybe lets it stand out from the other apps. That is, you can retrieve and display information FROM EventGhost and not only send events. In this layout, the volume seekbar and the mute button are set to the current value when the layout is shown or when these values change on the OS. I will eventually write a tutorial about how exactly this is done but I don't have so much time at the moment so you have to wait a little bit. Until then, you can have a look of the macros, the "System"-Layout and the EventGhost content that I provided as an example.
As a second example, I might also upload the layout that I personally use for controling MediaMonkey. It displays the currently played track, interpret, album and rating. I currently don't know how much this function is in demand, so please contact me if you want to have this second example earlier.
That's it for the moment. I am happy to answer all your questions about the new examples. Don't hesitate to ask. There is in general not enough feedback, yet. Would be nice to have some more.
