iStat Menus 2

iStat_Menus_Bar

It appears many software developers were caught out by the early release of Snow Leopard, and unfortunately one of the apps that hadn’t been updated was the excellent iStat Menus from iSlayer. It’s a system monitoring package that puts info in your menu bar for cpu, memory, network and hard drive usage, as well as temperatures and a highly configurable date/time.

Much has been written on the Snow Leopard problems the previous version of iStat Menus caused, but iSlayer has done a quick  job of getting version 2 out. The System Preferences panel has been overhauled and the options are even more flexible than before.  Highly recommended for anyone who wants to know what their Mac is doing.

    Interesting… I understand that Menu Meters also had problems with SL, too.

    Thanks, Martin.

    Does it display CPU core temps on Hackintoshes?
