What's New in version 2
  • Added return option on auto_scroll section, used to scroll in backwards when end of page is reached. Correct value is boolean (true or false).
  • Added pause option on auto_scroll section, used to make a pause when end (or start) of page is reached. Correct value is integer, corresponding to the number of "milli" value to wait (eg: milli is set to 2, pause is set to 1000, auto_scroll will wait 2*1000 millisecond).
  • Changed application title (from old name).
  • To note: Divide has been used for more than a one month at Smartjog without any problem, consequently, it developpement status is now "Stable".
