DssW has released Power Manager 4.0.3 for Mac OS X. This release includes new developer tools and bug fixes.
Power Manager is an automation and energy saving solution for Mac OS X. It boasts a range of energy saving events, including the ability to run applications and scripts to a schedule.
New to Power Manager 4.0.3 is the Power application programming interface. Developers can now programmatically access the battery and power information. This information includes the battery health, charge, and time remaining. A range of power sources are supported, including Uninterruptible Power Supplies (UPS). The Power API is available through C, Objective-C, shell, and AppleScript interfaces.
Power Manager 4.0.3 also fixes a bug in the inactivity trigger. This bug affected how multiple inactivity triggers interacted, and could cause triggers not to fire.
For more information, and to download a 30-day demo version of Power Manager, go to http://www.dssw.co.uk/powermanager/ . Registration is approximately US$53 and $398 for Power Manager Professional.
System requirements are Mac OS X 10.4 or later for Power Manager, and Mac OS X 10.6 for Power Manager Professional. Version 4.0.3 is free for users of Power Manager 4. Existing users can update using Power Manager’s automatic software update.
