Hardware Monitor 0.2 "Fumes of Hell" released


Perhaps you are getting tired of sitting in your dusty little corner,
monitoring the changes of the world as they go by. Perhaps you think
that for too long your new Gnome 2 dot almost 2 has been looking too
clean, too streamlined, too... innocent.

Perhaps you want something more. Perhaps it makes you a bit... angry.
Perhaps your temper sometimes rises too much. Perhaps you actually
want some FIRE, a smell of BURNED DESKTOP, in fact FLAMES ALL OVER THE

Turns out the Hardware Monitor applet can help you here once again. Go
crank up the latest version and prepare for some serious eye-candy.


  - a flame view where the activity is governed by the monitored device

  - minor fixes


  - monitor CPU/memory/swap/disk usage, load average, Ethernet/modem

  - a curve view which supports an unlimited amount of monitors

  - a bar view for the traditional horizontal bars

  - a text view for those who want extreme precision

  - a flame view for the angry little bastard inside you (or to
    impress your friends)

  - a modular design for future enhancements

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

Version 0.2 can be downloaded from here:


Screenshots are also available from the above page. The applet
requires Gnome 2.0 and the gtkmm and gnomemm libraries from
www.gtkmm.org - libgnomeuimm-1.3.11 is currently fine and has fewer

Known bugs: most notably editing the preferences will sometimes crash
the applet. This is due to a memory corruption bug in gconfmm which is
corrected in the CVS. Just answer yes when you're asked if you want to
add the applet again. Also, you can't change the font of the text view

PS: If you like the flame view, I would love to hear about it; I spent
far too much time on inventing/implementing the underlying algorithm...
