Developer site has disappeared. Did a google search, found nothing to indicate this software will ever be updated. Of course, anything can happen and often does.

Can I reiterate what has been said before... DO NOT install this on Leopard. I had to pull the hard drive out of my Mac Mini and connect to my iMac via USB to delete to offending files. See previous posts about what to do if this happens. AVOID IF USING LEOPARD! IT WILL STOP YOUR MAC FROM BOOTING UP

Does not work on Leopard. @Developer: Would you be so kind as to remove the part where it says 10.4.0 and up? this is not true. You just cost me 2 hours.

Aweful. I rebooted right after installing, thinking that I might need to do in order to see the effects that were not working properly after the initial install and my BRAND NEW black macbook booted to a blue screen. After I got a new copy of leopard installed on an external drive I had to boot from that, go into the hd on my new macbook and delete all the files just to get my data back. (http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=375444) for instructions.

PROGRAM DOES NOT WORK ON LEOPARD AND WILL CRASH YOUR MACHINE. Developer will still take $$$ for this program, but has not acknowledged that it is incompatible with Leopard. If you get the blue screen of death, the mac forums tell you how to correct. It took 2 times to bring my system back to operating condition, but no problems now. You do not need another Mac to restore the system, and do not need to re-install Leopard.

go to your home folder, Library, and then to PreferencePanes. Delete the Menufela from there. If you have Application Enhancer installed make sure you have the menufela unchecked. This should work.

Installing on Leopard - blue screen of login death!

After installing adn restarting, osx hangs on a nice blue screen, mouse cursor active nothing else...

Had not yet used Timemachine or other backup, doh!

Talked with apple support: had to reinstall Leopard, thankfully it kept my settings and files (select install on new location, transfer settings when using the dvd, needs 15gb free space)

Ok, i did see menufela was made for 10.4 or higher, not specifically for 10.5

And i did set "hide menu" before restarting, maybe that was unwise - after the osx reinstall it was still there, so i immediately uninstalled it!

So now youre warned, and adviced to learn a few unix commands if you happen to have the need of deleting some files to make space for a reinstall;)

Great app!! Sould already have been in Mac OS X itself.
Strangely enough some apps like Safari and iPhoto don't remember their position at the top but leave a space where the menu was when restarting. Other apps like iTunes does it perfect. Nice at the top of the screen after starting.
Hope that you guys get it fixed soon. After one day of use, I'd never wanna do without Menufela nomore!!!
