Alessandro Levi Montalcini has released a new beta version of USB Overdrive for Mac OS X. The new version, beta 3, can be downloaded from the Web site.
USB Overdrive is a universal USB driver designed to work with USB-based mice, trackballs, joysticks and gamepads (although this beta version only supports mice and trackballs). The software enables you to register either global or application-specific settings, and registers input from the various wheels, buttons, switches and controls on your input device. USB Overdrive supports scrolling, keyboard emulation, application launching and complex macros, along with clicking, control-clicking and other functionality. It also supports more than one USB device simultaneously.
According to the developer, changes in beta 3 include:
USB Overdrive X 10.0.0b3 is offered as US$20 shareware — you’re welcome to download it and give it a try. The developer said that users of the OS 9 version who registered following X’s release are entitled to a free upgrade using their existing registration code; new registrations cover the OS 9 and OS X versions both. Users who registered before OS X was released can get a special price for the upgrade, and all registered users of ALM Share will receive a free registration upon request.
