Austin-Soft today announced the release of DTerm 3.1, our developer utility
to make other developers’ lives easier by providing an external tool to
display and capture their diagnostic information. The new version fixes
several problems, improves the monitor application’s interface, and adds
several requested features to the product.

DTerm has been rebuilt with the latest version of Austin-Soft’s
Carbonization libraries, which feature full support of CarbonEvents and
sheets on Mac OS X. Additions have been made to the DTerm library routines
to improve compatibility and help developers isolate individual areas of
their code. Also, many settings which were application-wide can now apply
to individual session windows. In addition, the user interface has been
updated and several bugs have been fixed.

diagnose in their programs,” said Glenn L. Austin, CEO of
