Hi Guys
Anyone that has used any of our iStat products on a G4 powerbook has probably noticed that the temperatures never update properly. This is because of a bug(or feature?) in OS X on those systems. We have been working on a fix and now have a working solution that we want to get a few people to test.
If your interested post here and ill send you a link to a test application tomorrow

Thanks everyone

i've got a last revision 15" PowerBook - and your temps seem to be consistent with Temp Monitor!!

I'll test it anyway though...! :)

If you have temperature monitor.app everything will work because it has a fix in it aswell. Without temperature monitor.app running you may find the iStat products no longer update

Link has been pm'd to everyone. The file is an updated version of iStat nano.
Testing is straight forward. All you need to do is simply check that the temperature values change. Look at the cpu sensors mainly.

Anyone else want to try the beta ?
If you had the same problem on an ibook it should fix that aswell

I am willing to test too but I may not be a good candidate since I did not notice anything was wrong in the first place!!
