Big news for InerziaTimer!
This is not a true update: it's just a way to let InerziaTimer users know important notes!
InerziaTimer is up on the Mac AppStore in a new version and, as always, it's free!
So this 2.1.1 version is identical to the last 2.1: you may want not to download now. Instead, go to the Mac AppStoreand get the new 2.2 version for free!
The new AppStore version has the following news:
- Sandbox ready, to get a new level of security
- New Retina Display application icon
- Improvement on the overall stability
We had to drop the support to Leopard and the PowerPC architecture: InerziaTimer 2.2 requires an Intel CPU, together witha MacOS version starting from X.6.8 (Mountain Lion included). We are sorry to loose Leopard and the PPC, but now it is verydifficult to maintain this large compatibility, that could have lead to a general loss of reliability.
For those yet on 10.5, we suggested to keep the last version (this can always be downloaded from our site):www.inerziasoft.eu
