Vvidget User 8.4.3 has been released by VVI. The updated product includes a draw tool for laying out 2D graphs, a preconfigured Web graphing server, an Interface Builder palette for simple charts, two strip chart applications for plotting CPU (central processing unit) and network performance in real-time, and an online user manual.
“This is the first public release of these tools since Apple shipped them in 1997 bundled with their own products,” said John Brilhart, chief technical officer of VVI. “In the last six years these tools have undergone significant restructuring so we could support them for the current version of Mac OS X.”
The Vvidget family was formerly known by the names “OpenGraph” and “GraphBuilder.” VVI has been developing and selling a pro version for 12 years, but Vvidget User 8.4.3 is just the start of the Vvidget User version, Brilhart said.
Vvidget User is US$89 for commercial users and $49 for students. The Interface Builder palette version for programming is free to all. VVI has added an optional support plan for $149 per year, which includes standard updates to the palette version.
