smcFanControl 2.0


A new version of smcFanControl has been released.  The 2.0 version includes:


  1. Minimal UI - doesn't appear in the dock, but shows up as a menu item (displaying temperature and fan rpm)

  2. Automatic adjustment for being powered or using battery

  3. Multiple setting that can be selected on the fly.


I have updated the version running on the Mac mini, and have now installed it on my Mac Book Pro.  The concerns that I had previously, where the fan was always too loud, are now not a problem, as I can have different settings for different situations.
