This release adds the long-requested linear scale feature to Speedometer. You can now also adjust the minimum and maximum values displayed, and switch all units shown to bits per second.
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
MainLoop and the updated
Pile widget. Otherwise the features and code structure are largely unchanged.
In this release the scale maximum has been moved to above 1GB/s (for all the people with really fast network adapters out there) and a number of small improvements were made.
