The latest MultiBeast now includes the FakeSMC branch from kozlek with a new set of plugins and a new version of HWMonitor.app. This branch is fully compatible with Mountain Lion and adds significant new features such as access to more sensors and a customizable Menubar monitor.

To install, simply check the FakeSMC Plugins in MultiBeast to install the Plugins and the app. Reboot, then run the HWMonitor app in /Applications. You can then install the Menubar extensions to have access to the dropdown. The new app also has display preferences with nice checkboxes, buttons and sliders.

You can customize what is displayed in the menubar by dragging items from the Available items panel to the Menu bar item panel.

And view historical graphs of all sensors.

Much respect to netkas for the original FakeSMC, the Project OS X team for continuing development and kozlek for this branch. Please leave any bug reports over at the official HWSensors issues page. Have fun!

Previous menubar logo looked better, IMO.

To install this new version is there anything we must apply to the existing FakeSMC plugins to avoid possible issues?
