Today we launched Power Manager 3.7. It is available now to buy and download. This update is free for existing users of Power Manager 3 and highly recommended.
Leopard is supported
Power Manager now fully supports Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard). It has been a long weekend of testing. Unusually Apple did not pre-release the final build of Mac OS X 10.5 to developers. The decision means that Mac software developers are currently rushing to buy, install, and make sure their software works with the final release of Mac OS X 10.5.
Thankfully Power Manager required few changes to work with Mac OS X 10.5, and our work tracking the developer preview releases paid off.
