Hardware Monitor applet 1.0 released
Posted on: 03/05/2004 03:58 PM

Hardware Monitor applet 1.0 has been released:

It has been a long time since the previous release. The translation teams have been busy so Hardware Monitor is now available in many more languages. Some minor issues have also been resolved.

Because the applet is clearly quite stable (or has no users except me), the version has been bumped to 1.0. That's one oh more in this world.

What's new:

- Lots of translations

- Added an option to show free disk space instead of used

- Added support for monitoring wireless network connections

- Fixed an alignment bug for the text viewer (it was not aligned
with the GNOME clock)

- Assorted other bug fixes


- monitor CPU/memory/swap/disk usage, load average,
Ethernet/modem/wireless throughput, internal temperatures,
internal fan speeds

- multiple views that all support multiple monitors:

o a curve view with smooth lines
o a bar view with wacky horizontal bars
o a column view with ultra-clear vertical blocks
o a text view for those who want extreme precision
o a flame view to impress your friends

- a modular design for future enhancements

- well-behaved GNOME panel applet (no floating gkrellm windows)

Screenshots are also available from the above page. The applet requires Gnome 2.2 and the gtkmm and gnomemm-all libraries from www.gtkmm.org. Note that you need to install libsensors and setup lm-sensors with your kernel if you want to monitor temperatures and fan speeds.
