BOINCMenubar 2 v0.1.14 Beta

Fixed a number of bugs that have been reported, the most important of which is it could crash when reading the Login Items while checking to see if BOINCMenubar was in the list. It does this the first time you open the General Preferences pane.

If you have found any other situations that BOINCMenubar 2 crashes please let me know.

Maurice Sendak

Maurice Sendak‘s birthday was earlier this week. Where the Wild Things Are is my favorite book from when I was a child.

Cory Godbey has tapped a number of artists and illustrators to create works of art based on Where the Wild Things Are called Terrible Yellow Eyes.

Check it out, there is some really amazing artwork there.

BOINCMenubar 2 v0.1.12

I want to thank those of you who have downloaded BOINCMenubar and an extra thanks to the few who have sent me feedback. This is the first application I’ve released and it’s quite a thrill to get feedback from people.

I don’t have any forums or other feedback methods set up right now so if you are having any problems or have any suggestions then send me an email and I’ll get on it (bugs have priority).

I just released a minor update that fixes a few bugs. At this point I have fixed all of the bugs that I am aware of.

My current ideas/plans for 0.2.x:

  • Add a “Always Connected” option to hosts. Then the Growl notifications will include all you your hosts instead of just the current one in the menu.
  • A “All Connected Hosts” item in the Host submenu that will total all the projects and tasks for all of your hosts and show that in the menu.
  • An activity window that shows the running active tasks. Probably two modes, one that that shows all the running tasks at once, and the second shows one task at a time and the display scrolls up to show the next one every few seconds (useful for the All Connected Hosts option above because there may be a large number of tasks running).

Do you have any more ideas?


Welcome to my blog. Here I will talk about BOINC, BOINCMenubar 2, software development on Mac OS X and anything else that interests me.
