Evisum 0.5.9 Released

  • 2021-01-08 - by Alastair Poole (netstar)

Spent some time cleaning up and simplifying the UI and make it more responsive. Getting close to a point of a single common denomination of features between Linux, FreeBSD and OpenBSD. These are the realistic options if you want to run a free and open operating system.

  • Search “dialogue” added to process list.
  • Remember window sizing and location.
  • Simplify the process list view. One job, processes. Memory, CPU and other stats have their own windows.
  • Introduce the menu to other windows. No feature takes precedence (potentially).
  • Improved keyboard support. PgUp/PgDown focus. All windows close on Escape. You can quickly check some stat then close it.
  • Rewrite the sensors UI. Some OS don't cache when reading sensors. It makes better use of screen also.
  • Add a basic indicator for power supply.
  • Improve behaviour on OpenBSD amd64 and arm64.
  • Remove lots of horrible code.
  • Fix bug (CPU).
  • Purge an overly complicated storage API.
  • Internally things are much better. Much simpler.
  • Remove lots of blocking code.
  • Some improvement on genlist cache (WIP).
  • Flat icon for a “flat” theme.

The plan is, keep going, till the end :)

Wishing you all the very best in life and the coming year !

  • Improve the “burger” menu icon.
  • Add CPU thermal zone support to the UI.
  • CPU thermal support Linux (hwmon) and FreeBSD.
  • Where possible display CPU core topology correctly.
  • Add “helper” overlay to the CPU view.
  • Move Linux thermal zone to the sysfs hwmon interface.

  • Added CPU frequency scaling support.
  • Show kernel threads by default.
  • Add configurable poll time (see new menu).
  • CPU / Mem view respect polling settings.
  • Improve genlist behaviours.
  • Replaced the elm_menu with a better menu.
  • New per-core CPU window (thanks raster).

  • Some photographs of skies (thanks raster).
  • Some animation, images and icons.

  • UI changes…
  • Other small fixes undocumented.
