App Tamer 2.3.4 adds an option to quit idle apps and controls the CPU usage of complex applications more accurately.
This version is a free update for App Tamer 2 users. Please note that
if you still have App Tamer 1.x, this is a $7.95 paid upgrade if
you purchased version 1.x before July 1, 2013.
What's new in App Tamer 2.3.4
- App Tamer can now be set to quit applications after they've been idle in the background for a certain amount of time. Note that if the application pops up alerts about unsaved changes, etc, those alerts will still pop up. App Tamer doesn't auto-OK them or otherwise intervene.
- There were situations in which App Tamer's management of CPU usage could fail for apps that have multiple sub-processes, like web browsers and Spotlight. This issue has been fixed, so managed apps should stick more closely to the CPU usage you've set for them.
- When you turn on Time Machine Acceleration, App Tamer checks to see if Time Machine is also configured to be slowed to a particular CPU limit and will put up an alert to let you know that these settings are at cross purposes.
- App Tamer's own CPU usage has been reduced.
