Introducing Simon 5!

Simon version 5 is now available. It is a massive update, introducing a much-requested feature: syncing the Simon data between multiple Macs, plus a Simon Status service, a Link Checker filter, improved Find filter, iMessage and Speak Error notifiers, a new app icon, and much more.

Important: please note that Simon 5 requires a minimum of macOS 10.12 (Sierra), and is a paid upgrade from Simon 4. Purchasers since September 1, 2020 automatically get a version 5 license (that also works in previous versions).

Read the Simon What's New page for details.

Duration precision?

Is there a way to set the precision of the duration displayed in the monitor?

I would like it down the 100ths of a second.

Durations are now showing as 0 secs, and I'm presuming that is because they are rounded down to the nearest second.

bug: licenses window

Sorry if this is not the right place, didn't see a support option in the Simon menu.

The licenses window has the checkboxes overlaid with the text, so that it is not usable.

logging to file

Is there a way to have Simon log to a file?

A daily log file per service would be perfect.

I'm using Simon 2.3.5 on Mac OS X 10.4.11.

Re: Duration precision?

At present the duration is only recorded in one second increments. I agree that a finer precision would be good, so I'll probably add that in an upcoming release. Thanks for the request; that helps move it up the priorities.

I'll answer your other queries in the separate threads.
