Pennyworth 1.0b7

Pennyworth 1.0b7 is now available for download.

This release includes some minor bug fixes and a new power source observer. I expect that this new observer will be useful for laptop-based road warriors.

I also want to use this as an opportunity to draw attention to the new Pennyworth website. The new Pennyworth website will replace this one as the primary distribution point for Pennyworth. The new site is intended to be a fairly static site with information about the application for users and developers. I’m still tweaking the site – so send me your comments and thoughts – but I needed to “ship” some time.

In addition to the new site, I set up a Pennyworth Google Group in order to foster a freer conversation about the program than exists now. If have any interest in the application and would like to talk about it, this group is the place for you.

Finally, with this new version, the Pennyworth appcast has been moved to

so update your bookmarks accordingly.


MacOS X 10.5 “Leopard”

Growl (Recommended): Pennyworth can be used without the Growl notification system by viewing the current predictions, but this occupies precious screen real estate and you attention. In order to receive visual notifications of updated predictions, I recommend that you install and configure the Growl notification system before running Pennyworth.


There is not a source distribution available yet, but if you’d like the source code, it is available via Subversion at

The source requires Xcode 3 to build.
