Working as expected without any problems and allows iStats to display the current CPU frequency. Also a great tool to monitor CPU usage.

Works perfectly and quickly, and provides very useful insights. Have been using the tool for quite some time, using it now with High Sierra 10.13.6 and IPG version 3.5.3.

The "what's new" for version 3.5.4. listed above does not make sense, as it refers to version 3.5.2.

Those below who refer to bugs are in a very specific and old configuration (OS / IPG version). This is no more the case.

Once again, the rating system of MU is totally useless and misleading, as it combines scores for totally different versions...
