Version History

Release 5.6 (Build 190617)

The application was repackaged to remain compatible with future versions of Apple Gatekeeper.

Release 5.55 (Build 180411)

Added new user interface to the product activation feature in order to be compliant with the General Data Protection Regulation of the European Union (EU Regulation 2016/679).

Release 5.54 (Build 170907)

Release 5.53 (Build 170728)

This is a maintenance update to fix minor issues.

Release 5.52 (Build 170411)

The application now accepts a longer time to complete its startup before displaying a failure warning. This allows to launch the application even under very heavy load, or to diagnose problems on systems with hardware or software defects that slow down normal operation. Only users who received a “could not contact computer” warning with version 5.5 need this update.

Release 5.51 (Build 170403)

Resolved a race condition which could prevent successful startup on systems with a specific timing behavior.

Release 5.5 (Build 170316)

Release 5.41 (Build 170210)

This is a maintenance update only. It ensures that the user interface of the Lite version stays visible even if all sensors are removed and the menu bar is set to dark mode.

Release 5.4 (Build 161128)

Release 5.31 (Build 160518)

This update is not necessary for existing customers.

Release 5.2 (Build 160122)

Release 5.11 (Build 160119)

This is a maintenance update which is only needed on Apple Macintosh models released in 2015. Users of other computer models don’t need to download this version.

It fixes an issue where the application did not show an image of the computer in the window System Information. After opening the window, specific features of the application may have been unexpectedly canceled due to the missing picture which could appear like a “hang” situation.

Release 5.1 (Build 160114)

Release 5.0 (Build 151130)

Due to high demand, development of Hardware Monitor was resumed. The new release modernizes the application internally, removing outdated parts. In the first step, the overall architecture, feature set, and interface concepts have not been changed yet. This is planned for future releases.

Note: The “iMac Late 2015” model series are not officially supported yet.

Release 4.99 (Build 141219)

Due to changes in European legislation on value added tax, the application had to be re-released with modified pricing information. Current customers don’t need to update.

Enhanced compatibility with operating systems supporting a black menu.

NOTE: Some specific sensor location labels for Intel-based systems are subject to change and may not be final. Compatibility Reports for the new Core 2-based Mac series created via the Help menu of Hardware Monitor are welcome. Intel Xserve models are not fully supported yet. Support will be added when these systems become available.

Release 3.5 (Build 060428)

The following items have been added to Hardware Monitor. They are not available in Temperature Monitor:

The following items apply to all variants of the software:

Release 3.4 (Build 060302)

Added support for new Macintosh systems which use the “smart battery” industry standard. Production dates and serial numbers of “smart” battery units can be displayed in a new battery detail panel.

Note to users of Temperature Monitor: If you are already using version 3.3 of Temperature Monitor, you only need to update to 3.4 if you want to remotely monitor the battery of a MacBook Pro running a licensed copy of Hardware Monitor Remote 3.4. In all other aspects, version 3.4 is identical to 3.3.
