[prMac.com] Vienna, Austria - Dare to be Creative today announced the release of MainMenu 2.0, an update to its system maintenance utility for Mac OS X. MainMenu allows users to clean up their Mac, improve system performance and free up hard disk space from their system menu. It marks the first commercial release since the company acquired MainMenu earlier this year.
Enhanced User Experience, More Tasks:
The new version offers an enhanced user experience, including an animated system menu icon similar to Apple's Time Machine to show when tasks are running, and Growl notifications to inform when tasks complete. The new version also offers more system tasks, such as force restarting unresponsive applications, as well as network tasks such as restarting the Airport card when working on unreliable wireless networks.
First Commercial Release:
MainMenu 2 marks the first commercial release since the company acquired MainMenu from Santa Software in May 2009.
