The MenuMeters monitors are true SystemUIServer plugins (also known as Menu Extras). This means they can be reordered using command-drag and remember their positions in the menubar across logins and restarts.

The CPU Meter can display system load both as a total percentage, or broken out as user and system time.

It can also graph user and system load and display the load as a "thermometer". The menu for the CPU Meter contains several pieces of information I like to have a single click away (uptime, load average, open Process Viewer, open Console).

Features:

· Net meter now supports "orientation" preference to determine if transmit or receive is on top of display.
· New net meter graph style "Inverse Opposed" that reverses the orientation of the "Opposed" mode graph.
· Net meter menu content now includes peak throughput for the interface.
· Narrow throughput display to 4 digits in all cases. Patch from Alex Eddy (arekkusu at mac.com).
· Option to remove zero traffic baseline from network graph. Based on code from Alex Eddy (arekkusu at mac.com).
· Net meter display uses separate color for inactive interfaces. Based on code from Da Woon Jung (quarkkiller at yahoo.com).
· Disk activity indicator lights using color arrows on top of the boot disk icon. Based on artwork from Nate Friedman (natef at ForgottenNewbies.com).
· All history graphs allow a shorter (11 pixel) length.
