Dash Monitors 1.1 preview was released this morning. Version 1.1 includes two new graph modes: text and graphical. From the project web page: The text view mode shows a very simple text view of the resources being used and is beneficial because it takes very few system resources to generate the statistics. The graphical view mode, while taking more CPU resources to draw all the monitors, displays a nice interface to what is happening on the system. Text summaries are provided with most of the monitors in graphical mode to provide the exact data along with the graphical approximations.

I’m releasing this version with an expiration date of June 1. I’m sure the Dashboard environment will continue to change as Apple gets closer to a public release of Tiger, so I don’t want to offer a full release until then.

Check out the preview release and post suggestions for future functionality to the Gaucho Software Forums.
