Power Manager 5.9.0 Released

Announcing the launch of Power Manager 5.9.0 for macOS.

We are pleased to announce the launch of Power Manager 5.9. This update introduces a new astronomic calculations library and improvements to the user interface.

This update changes the sun trigger and condition to use the astral library. Along with the change in library we fixed a tricky time zone bug and improved the user interface for entering the longitude and latitude.

For those using file configuration to manage settings, this update changes the handling of errors. Every request within a file configuration will now be attempted. Requests that fail will continue to be logged but will no longer cause the remaining requests to be skipped. This approach aims to provide a more robust behaviour.

Power Manager requires macOS 10.12 or later.

Updating Power Manager

Power Manager will automatically check for updates every so often, so there is nothing to do. The update will automatically be offered to you during the next few weeks.

If you want to update to the latest Power Manager now, use the Check for Updates menu item in the Power Manager menu. In case of problems, please follow the manual update steps.
