Great utility. It solved a persistent "spinning beach ball" lag that was steadily growing worse on my Macbook Pro. The Onyx maintenance script restored my laptop to usability once again.

VUWER is now functional for OS X 10.4.11 through 10.9.1. VUWER should have a more regular update schedule in the months ahead, with language localization to be added later this year.

My apologies to everyone for taking so long to release this update; sometimes the "real world" gets in the way of your best intentions.

A heads up to everyone - it appears that OS X Mavericks breaks VUWER, at least for Option 1. If you rely on VUWER, I recommend that you hold off on upgrading to Mavericks until I can resolve this problem and push out an update.

Update: A solution has been identified. I'll be pushing out a new VUWER update soon - hopefully by the end of October.

No, VUWER has not been abandoned. I have been drowning in work over the past 3 months, and my release date keeps slipping. I should finally get out from under my deadlines after this week, after which I hope to have two or three uninterrupted days to finish the changes to the code and test it on several machines.

Sorry for these delays, but I have to give first priority to my regular job.

VUWER users: you may have noticed that VUWER geolocation (i.e. latitude & longitude data) has recently stopped working. You still get IP address information, and information about the wireless networks that your Mac detects, but the Google Gears API server (which provided free geolocation queries) has been permanently shut down.

If you are running OS 10.7 or 10.8, note that iCloud's "Find My iPhone" feature can be enabled on your Mac to provide a map of your laptop's location. For those of you with older operating systems, I'm working on an update that will use the new Google Geolocation API instead of Google Gears. It should be released by January 2013.
