A few days ago, Microsoft released PowerToys 0.29 for users of the stable application. The version contains improvements and corrections to the FancyZones, PowerToys Run and Color Picker tools. Since then, the company has internally tested versions 0.29.1 and 0.29.2 and finally released version 0.29.3.
What’s new in PowerToys 0.29.3.
- #8808 – The Fantasy Zone was sometimes not displayed. This was caused by two uninitialized variables. There was a race condition during testing, so we avoided it. We hope that our efforts to add more code analysis tools will help detect these types of errors.
- #8787 – PowerRename throws a regex error when it shouldn’t. For the time being, we have removed the error dialog and will add a more targeted error detection block later on.
So this is a small update with two corrections.
