[prMac.com] Halifax, Nova Scotia/Canada - Preen and Prune Software and Design has announced the availability of SunFlower 0.12, the visual monitoring tool. SunFlower 0.12 contains new features, minor interface refinements, stability improvements and support for Snow Leopard (see the release notes for a detailed summary of changes).
The most notable new feature is a dynamically displayed delete button on subscription snapshots. Previous versions of SunFlower required a right click on each snapshot followed by a context menu selection. This process could quickly become tedious. The new delete button makes the flow of managing subscriptions with many snapshots almost effortless.
This release also introduces support for Snow Leopard (Mac OS X 10.6). The changes made in Snow Leopard dramatically changed the foundation of SunFlower by highlighting potential issues. The result is a much more robust product that supports 10.5 and 10.6.
SunFlower is a visual monitoring tool primarily used for monitoring web page changes. It displays web page changes visually and provides mechanisms to examine those differences. Unlike most web monitoring tools which use html code to determine changes, SunFlower uses web page renderings to compare changes. Dynamic content, such as advertisements, can be easily be ignored with the straightforward exclusion filter interface.
* Mac OS X Version 10.5 Leopard
Pricing and Availability:
The latest edition of SunFlower is available for $20 (USD). Press copies are available upon request. A public edition is freely available for download and use; however the publicly available version is not the most current version.
