[prMac.com] Ekero, Sweden - Maintain has released Cocktail 7.5.2 (Mavericks Edition), the latest maintenance update of Cocktail for users running OS X Mavericks 10.9. Cocktail is a general purpose utility for OS X that lets you clean, repair and optimize your Mac. The application serves up a perfect mix of maintenance tools and tweaks, all accessible through a clean and easy to use interface. Cocktail's features are arranged into five categories that helps you manage various aspects of your computer. It also comes with an automatic Pilot mode that allows you to simply press a button and relax, knowing that Cocktail will take care of the rest.
* Added ability to change tool tip display delay (Interface - General)
Tool tips are little floating yellow tags of explanatory text that appear when you move the mouse pointer over an application button or other onscreen item.
* Added ability to disable App Napp feature entirely and system wide, for every single application and process (System - Misc)
App Nap is an energy feature that causes inactive applications to go into a paused state, helping to reduce power usage. While the idea of "napping" background applications to save energy seems like a good one overall, some users may not want their background applications interfered with and would prefer to manage their Mac's power usage on their own. You will need to restart the computer in order for changes to take effect.
* Improvements on the clear DNS cache procedure
* Addresses an issue in which Cocktail may fail to restart Core Audio daemon
* Improvements to the uninstaller
Cocktail 7.5.2 (Mavericks Edition) requires OS X Mavericks 10.9 to run. Cocktail (Mountain Lion Edition) for OS X 10.8, Cocktail (Lion Edition) for OS X 10.7 and Cocktail (Snow Leopard Edition) for OS X 10.6 are available for download from Maintain website.
