It’s been a few years since f.lux for Windows got an update, but this new version is finally out of beta. We have a ton of new features and bugfixes to tell you about, and we hope you enjoy trying them out in the new version.
Big new cool stuff
- f.lux can go warmer than 3400K now, down to 2700K. Or even 1200K if you really want it to.
- Support for color profiles from a hardware calibrator
- Movie mode. This setting warms up your display, but it preserves shadow detail, skintones, and sky colors better than f.lux’s typical colors. It lasts 2½ hours, which lets you watch most feature films
- Disable until morning, for late-night crunch mode
- A new “darkroom” mode, which inverts colors and gets very red
- A map to help you find your location
- Hotkeys to dim your display (Alt-PgDn, Alt-PgUp) late at night, so desktop users can dim too
- A hotkey to disable/enable f.lux quickly: Alt-End
- If you have a laptop, f.lux gets warmer when your backlight dims, like an incandescent lamp
- A simple schedule for Philips Hue, so you can f.lux your house
Some more fixes
- Safe mode for playing video games without hiccups
- Bugs fixed with Intel chipsets
- Smoother animations and fading
- Better support for Windows 7 & 8
