I’m hearing reports that recent versions of ControlPlane fails to change contexts after it has been running for awhile or will use excessive CPU time. I’m looking into the issue but it would be helpful to hear from anyone who is having this issue. If you are having either of these issues please report it at http://github.com/dustinrue/ControlPlane/issues and provide information about what evidence sources you are using.
ControlPlane 1.3.6 contains a couple of fixes. One of the fixes should resolve a crash issue in the active application evidence source. The other fixes the audio output evidence source which prevented it from working at all.
You can get the latest version of ControlPlane by clicking ‘Check for Updates’ in the ControlPlane menu or by clicking the proper download link located to the left.
Sorry for the rapid set of releases but I made a number of changes (and a number of mistakes) in 1.3.3. This release fixes an issue with the open action which would cause ControlPlane to crash when trying to open an app that doesn’t have a bundle identifier. Java apps are an example of an app that would crash.
As always, you can get the latest version of ControlPlane by choosing ‘Check for Updates’ from ControlPlane’s menu or by clicking the DOWNLOAD link above.
I’ve released ControlPlane 1.3.4 to fix a bug in 1.3.3 that prevented ControlPlane from switching to the default context if one was configured. You can get it by selecting “Check for Updates” in ControlPlane’s menu or by clicking the DOWNLOAD link above.
ControlPlane 1.3.3 has been re-released. I introduced a pretty big issue that I’ve now removed, this re-release should fix any beach balls. If you have any issues please let me know. This release brings a number of changes including:
- active application evidence source
- attached power adapter evidence source
- toggle notification center alerts action
ControlPlane 1.3.3 also incorporates a number of bug and performance improvements. As always, you can get the latest version of ControlPlane by choosing “Check for Updates” from ControlPlane’s menu or by clicking the DOWNLOAD link located above.
ControlPlane 1.3.2 has been released. This release brings support for Mountain Lion and drops support for Snow Leopard. The last version of ControlPlane for Snow Leopard is 1.2.3 which can be downloaded here.
Most of the changes in 1.3.2 are under the hood and allow ControlPlane to work properly with Mountain Lion. Notable changes are that ControlPlane is now a signed app and will use Mountain Lion’s Notification Center instead of Growl. ControlPlane continues to use Growl for notifications on Lion.
You can download 1.3.2 by clicking the DOWNLOAD link above or if you are already running ControlPlane by choosing “Check for updates” from ControlPlane’s menu.
Latest beta version brings back support for Lion (10.7) as well as support for the setting your status in iChat and Messages. If you had an iChat status action configured under Lion, that same action will now work with the Messages app in Mountain Lion. You can get the latest beta by clicking here or if you are already running a beta you can simply choose Check for updates from the menu.
This should be the last beta release of the ControlPlane 1.3.x series and a non-beta version will be released soon.
Support for Snow Leopard has been removed from the 1.3.x series. If you are running Snow Leopard (10.6) and wish to use ControlPlane you can download the latest version here.
Got a feature request to add Notification Center support. I had skipped it assuming it required being sold through the App Store but turns out I was wrong. This release will use Notification center if available and fall back to Growl if not. You can get the new beta here or if you are already running the 1.3.0 you can simply choose “Check for updates” from ControlPlane’s menu.
This is a beta release intended for Mountain Lion users and hasn’t been extensively tested on Lion. It is code signed so you can install it on Mountain Lion without needing to drop your Gatekeeper security setting down below “Mac App Store and identified developers.”.
Remember that this is a beta release and there will probably be issues with it. Please report any issues that you find to controlplane at dustinrue.com.
