TMonitor 1.01 Beta – from CPUID

Posted in Beta, Fun Stuff, Utilities, Windows

CPUID has just rolled out a new product – TMonitor 1.01 Beta. This application is aimed to display the active clock of each individual thread of a multi-core, multi-threaded processor.

The software has a very high refresh rate (~20Hz) that allows users to visualize the smallest clock variation in real time. TMonitor is able to detect mechanism such as Intel Turbo boost, and therefore allows to clearly visualize its effect as the processor is working.

Check out the image on the right to view the effect of Turbo Technology on an Intel Core i7 870 based on a Lynnfield core. Unfortunately, it only works on Intel Core 2 and Core i3/i5/i7 processors.

Gimp Portable 2.6.2 Released

Posted in Fun Stuff, Graphics, Linux, Mac OS, Site News, Utilities, Windows

Where graphical editing tools are concerned, in my opinion, there is nothing that beats these 2 top products in the market – Adobe Photoshop and GIMP (GNU Image Manipulation Program). Whereas the former requires users to pay for its use, the latter is released under the GNU GPL license, such that users can download the application for free and use it as according to the regulation stated by its license. Anyway, the news here is that, GIMP Portable 2.6.2 is released for your update.

GIMP Portable 2.6.2 is slightly different from GIMP 2.6.2, in the sense that this application is “portable“; that is, the installation can be done on a USB thumb drive or a removable drive and data is not written onto the hard disk drive. Thus it allows users to carry the application on a thumb drive and move it from one PC to another. That is an amazing feature, if you are working in an environment where installation of programs is strictly prohibited on the host PC.

FileZilla Client

Posted in Business Software, Linux, Mac OS, Site News, Software Companies, Solaris, Utilities, Web Apps, Windows

Ask anyone which application is the best software for FTP (file transfer protocol), most of them will point in the direct of Filezilla. Filezilla is a free FTP solution that provides both server and client applications; furthermore, it is an open source software, distributed under the terms of the GNU GPL. In other words, you can download this for free and use it for personal purpose, as long as it is within the GNU GPL agreement.

Having used Filezilla for a long time, I have absolutely no complaint with this software as it provides almost everything that is required for file transfer. In addition to common FTP communication, it supports SFTP (Secure FTP) and FTPS (FTP using SSL). In the latest release of Filezilla Client, some of the bug were fixed.

GIMP 2.6.1 Released

Posted in Business Software, Fun Stuff, Linux, Mac OS, Site News, Software Companies, Solaris, Utilities, Windows

The open-source GIMP, also known as the GNU Image Manipulation Program, has released the latest version of GIMP 2.6.1. For others who are not familiar with GIMP, you can consider as a substitute for the free version of Adobe Photoshop. This software is capable of performing complex tasks, such as photo re-touching, image composition and image authoring. On top of that, it runs on multiple operating systems and not just Microsoft Windows alone.

Release notes for this version is made available here. From a development point of view, GIMP 2.6 series is a rather important release as it features major changes to the user interface that addresses some complaints provided by users. Furthermore, there is a tentative integration of GEGL, the graph based image process library, that will bring a much detailed and comprehensive editing to the users’ experience.
