    • Support WIndows 10 Night Light

      With the Windows 10 Creators Update, you can now lower the amount of blue light emitted from your PC with the new Night light feature.

      Settings > System > Display

      This feature doesn't work on my HP s140u monitor using DisplayLink 8.4.2250.0. I'm guessing it might not work on lots of other devices too.

          • Please use versioning format x.x.xx instead of x.x (xx)

            We are trying to automate software updates and track inventory of DisplayLink drivers in our macOS environment. Trying to parse versions when the value reports as `4.1 (11)` or `DisplayLink Driver 4.1.11 - Copyright 2003...` makes it difficult.

            In the driver Info.plist file, please set the `CFBundleShortVersionString` key in the x.x.xx format. Even better, clean up the `CFBundleGetInfoString`

            • Nightshift mac os sierra high and high cpu usage with high temps

              I have a 2017 Macbook pro touch bar with a sabrent usb c docking station( best on amazon) . First of all nightshift doesn't work on the extra displays. I get high temperatures(80-90 celsius) even when almost not doing any tasks, keep in mind I have the highest spec Macbook pro (4 GB graphics card).

              Please try to get nightshift to work and also fix the high usage of cpu even when not doing anything.

              • Release Linux driver source code to the community

                Your "Ubuntu" driver package works inconsistently, fails every time there is a system update to the kernel or the X server, and performs badly. It's clearly not a priority for your development team, who likely have orders to focus their efforts on the larger market-share platforms. The open-source community is packed with talented developers who will work for free to help you deliver a more polished product, providing a better experience for your users, and ultimately resulting in more product sales.

                  • Fix What Fall Creator's Update Breaks

                    Fix Win10 Fall Creator's Update breaking software config of dock software. Win10 update uninstalled dock drivers. I saw a 1-second announcement in lower right corner of screen when Win10 update finished installing that displaylink driver was uninstalled. So far graphics functionality restored but audio stutters upon slightest load on computer if routed through dock. Zero issues with dock several months ago before windows updates.

                      • Use https for driver download site

                        The current download site uses http, which is prone to MitM attacks. It would be possible to offer people a DisplayLink driver that is infected with malware.

                          • Displaylink manager with Linux driver take 150% of CPU

                            Tested with the latest Ubuntu 17.10, a Dell XPS13 9360, a Dell dock D3100 and 2 iiyama prolite screens, the driver works pretty fine but... after some niutes, it take too much CPU resources ! It's over 150%... CPU fans gonna be crazy and CPU temp reach 80° very quickly...
                            As a consequence, unfortunetly, I just cannot use the displaylink dock :(

                            On my side, I can try to investigate more deeply if needed,

                            Thanks

                            • Enable 4K HDR support to TV's for extended display use when viewing High End Photographs in Capture One or other Photo Edditing software

                              A large number of Photographers are using high end Cameras capable of recording 16 bits per pixel HDR. There are also a large number of 4K HDR TV's being sold but they only display Jpeg format at 8 bits per pixel. It would be fantastic to have a device that would bring these technologies together so people could use their TV's to view and or edit their HDR photographs properly on a 4K HDR device.

                                  • See all dockingstations of same type as same device

                                    Hi!

                                    We have installed a multitude of workstations with the same type of DisplayLink docking station. When moving from one station to another, the monitor settings are "forgotten" and the new Dell D6000 is seen as a completely new device, and new drivers and settings for monitors, network and usb are needed to be configured.

                                    Therefore I suggest making it possible to have the driver think that all docks of the same type is also the same device. This will make this problem go away.

                                    Thanks
                                    Patrik

                                    • Support Ubuntu 17.04

                                      Ubuntu 17.04 is not supported. I'm using a Dell D6000 docking station.
                                      Network and USBs work, but headphones, monitors don't.

                                      Also the current release cannot be installed without disabling Secure Boot.
