Hi all,

thank you all for the great job! I am going to recommit the V3 to http://www.codeproject.com/KB/cs/globalhook.aspx where the project comes from initially.
Now it's time to wait for feedback from users and think about features we wish for V4.

Great news about the release. Honestly, this is by far the best managed input hooks implementation on the internet and I feel privileged to have contributed.

I'll update the documentation and provide 64-bit binaries soon.

As far as V4 goes, there is very little that I can think of which would improve the project. Hotkey implementation?

I don't have many ideas honestly, and those that I do have can probably be put into a 3.1 release, or just a rolling version of the V3 community package.

  1. Hotkeys, either by RegisterHotkey API or simply monitor key input via private key down/up processing in current implementation. 
  2. Convert the timestamp in MouseEventExtArgs/KeyEventExtArgs from Windows ticks to a System.DateTime.
  3. Non-client Window message processing for AppHooks.

That's all that I can come up with right now. How about you George?
