Seafoid + Snow Leopard = Seafoid 3.0

Yes, I am alive. It’s more than a week now that  Snow Leopard came out and there is still no new version that works with the new Mac OS X. The reason is simple. Instead of using the time to fix the old Seafoid I’ve started to completely rewrite the app from scratch to make it more extendible for future development. It will also come up with some cool new features. Just to name a few:

  • Calculating circuits with the legendary NE555 (currently as an astable and monostable multivibrator)
  • Revamped heat sink calculation. Additionally to the old way (calculating the resulting chip temperature for a heat sink), Seafoid has a new option called “Calculate Appropriate Heat Sink” where you specify the maximum chip temperature and the app will tell you what thermal resistance the heat sink must have.
  • Seafoid 3.0 combines the clean look of Seafoid 1.x and the function of Seafoid 2.0, plus lots of improvements and new features.
  • Seafoid is now localizable! The beta release will come with English, German and Greek translations.
  • Lots of minor improvements like better input information and exception handling.

A beta version will be available soon is available. Stay tuned!
