I'm happy to announce the release of xmobar 0.13.
xmobar is a lightweight, text-based system monitor for un*x systems.
See http://projects.haskell.org/xmobar/ for the whole story.
## Version 0.13 (March 28, 2011)
- New `Volume` monitor displaying ALSA soundcards information, by
- New `ThermalZone` plugin substituting `Thermal` and using linux's
*sysfs* interface (you need this one if you're using a kernel
version equal to or above 2.6.37). See [issue 44].
- xmobar app new has WM_CLASS, WM_NAME and _NET_WM_PID xprops
- In the process of solving [issue 14], we've broken those
configurations that rely on including alignment separators in the
input fed to `StdinReader`.
- The MPD plugin does not accept host and port options anymore: use
the environment variables MPD_HOST and MPD_PORT instead.
- The `Mail` plugin now takes a second parameter (a string)
specifying its alias. As a side-effect, this solves [issue 30].
- [issue 14]: `StdinReader` and other plugins accepting external
input don't get confused anymore when characters from `alignSep`
appear in their input.
- [issue 27]: `BottomSize` placement now respects its width argument.
- [issue 28]: Compilation in Mac OS X fixed.
- [issue 30]: `Mail` plugin can be specified anywhere in commands list.
- [issue 36]: Battery monitor now supports non-standard locations of
the `/sys/class/power_supply/AC/online` file.
- [issue 40]: Battery monitor now supports the new power_now, that
replaces current_now in linux kernels for v. 2.36 and above.
- [issue 42]: More accurate net monitor rates.
- DiskIO, Cpu and MultiCpu monitors are also more accurate now.
- Text is now correctly centered vertically.
- `FullBM` border spec fixed.
Computer games don't affect kids; I mean if Pac Man affected us
as kids, we would all be running around in darkened rooms, munching
magic pills, and listening to repetitive electronic music.
