iMon Helper utility available

I just completed a new helper utility that will allow a standard LCDproc install to communicate with your iMon display. No more compiling special Mac OS X iMon drivers for LCDproc!

iMon_Helper is intended as a go-between to allow your Mac OS X installation of LCDProc to communicate with your iMon display. Because it is installed a separate binary, you will not need special Mac OS X specific compilations of LCDproc or the iMon driver to take advantage of the features of your iMon display. This will allow you to keep updated with the latest features of the iMon LCDproc driver.

Download the latest version now!

Unfortunately, I have not tested it on the newest Mac OS X or in 64 bit. Leave a comment if you have any problems.

Cox web hosting also recently ended their service, so the previous downloads I have posted are no longer available. I will try to get a version of GrowLCDproc up ASAP.
