I know there are alot of iStat pro users here and i know a few of you have been waiting for a few bugs to be fixed for a while now.

so here is a list of the currently scheduled items for the next update which is due at the end of the month
Improved iDisk support. Local iDisks will be fully supported and no longer show 0mb for each value
Bug fix for Quad processor systems and side graph on cpu section (wide skin only)
Fix for single/quad systems using the wide/fire skin and cpu/memory side graphs
Ability to show drive icons on wide skins

Bug fixes for temps/fans sections. Sensors that show 0 degrees or 0rpm will report corect values

Got it!

couldnt work out the speedit kernal extension - lots of trouble finding it as their site is borked and wont go to the page it is on. then when i did get it by changing the selection tab on their site i d/l it and couldnt work out how to install it - without paddling around in terminal like a one finned blind goldfish.

Thanks for the update!
As usual - your widgets and releases are among my favourites and most used!

Thanks for adding Battery Health - only its a shame my battery has only had 135 charges - but isn't as healthy as I thought!?!?!?
