Speedometer 2.7 Released

Speedometer 2.7 Screenshot
Posted on 2010-11-08.

I've updated my Speedometer project to use some of the latest Urwid features.

This release works well with light, dark or transparent backgrounds. It can display in monochrome mode and now has 88/256-color mode support (with a solid background color). There is also a new option to exit once a monitored file download completes.

Speedometer 2.7 requires Urwid 0.9.9.1 (Speedometer 2.6 was compatible with ancient versions of Urwid) it now uses raw_display, MainLoop and the updated Pile widget. Otherwise the features and code structure are largely unchanged.
