mbpfan v1.8.0 is out. Enhanced startups and shutdowns

m

It is my pleasure to announce the availability of mbpfan v1.8.0.

This version features several commits of gifted open source developers from all around the world, who I kindly thank and acknowledge.

This version features clever ways of starting up and shutting down. On starting up, it will detect old, unclean .pid files and delete them instead of aborting. On shutting down (under any circumstance), it will free up the resources and give back the control to applesmc.

Quick changelog for v1.8.0:

  • Enhanced systemd file #45
  • Cleaned up Makefile and quicker response to high temperatures when starting #48
  • Return the control to applesmc when exiting #49
  • Cleanup of resource when exiting #50
  • Removal of stale pid file instead of aborting #53 #52
