The Iconfactory on Thursday released iPulse 2.0, a new version of its popular Mac OS X system monitoring utility. Version 2.0 introduces over 40 new features including: pop-up windows that show info for the gauge under your cursor; the ability to load and save the application’s appearance via iPulse “Jackets”; mobility gauges that monitor battery power and wireless signal strength; disk activity gauges; automatic and logarithmic scaling modes for disk and network activity; system hotkeys that show or hide the iPulse window at any time; reduced CPU usage; and Mac OS X 10.3 “Panther” compatibility. The Iconfactory has also launched the iPulse Jacket Gallery, where you can download Jackets to customize the look and feel of iPulse. The software sells for US$12.95 and is a free upgrade for registered users of version 1.0.
