new release of indicator-sysmonitor – v0.6.2

Just a quick update … after scratching my head for several days wondering why my debian package refused to work, finally solved it.  Learned a lot on how to do correct packaging.  Will use that knowledge when I come to update some of my other PPAs.

So what’s new visually … nothing.  That’s right – I’ve released something that is visually no different than before.  That should be a good thing 😀

What is actually different is the underlying plumbing.  It has been completely restructured and this makes the whole project fundamentally easier to understand and most crucially maintain.  Heck – if you feel like hacking and adding more sensors – it should be really easy now.

All sensors live in one source module – sensors.py.  every sensor is its own python class – so no issues with changing code and breaking other sensors.

Preferences is in another module and the overall indicator is also in its own module.  I did say logical!

A couple of bug fixes from other contributors – cheers.

How to install:

If you are using my PPA then just update as usual (trusty, utopic – and brand new vivid).  Otherwise, if new …

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:fossfreedom/indicator-sysmonitor
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install indicator-sysmonitor

Alternatively – wizz over to my GitHub project and look around at the code – use the README instructions to install

Update 26/04/15: v0.6.2 release – fixes crash on adding custom indicator
