Dejal announces Simon 2.0 Beta

A Mac OS X application to monitor sites for changes or failures.

PORTLAND, Oregon -- November 2, 2004 -- Dejal Systems today announced the immediate availability of Dejal Simon 2.0b2, the essential site monitoring tool for Mac OS X. It checks sites for changes or failures, and notifies you via email, sound, speech, or other means. You can use it to track updated sites, and to alert you when an important site goes down or recovers. Developed in Cocoa, it is a native Mac OS X application with an intuitive and attractive Aqua interface.

This is the second beta release of a major upgrade to Simon. Along with many usability improvements, it delivers a much-requested new feature set: a new Port service, that enables you to engage in a telnet-like conversation with any server, e.g. POP, SMTP, SSH, and more. This release adds a status menu to the menu bar, and fixes several bugs. See the release notes for more information.
