You want to display your current IP address in the menu bar? You want to display your user name, your computer name, the IP address, the subnet mask and the MAC address of each of your network interface at the same time? You want your Mac to automatically send an email or upload a file through FTP when one of your IP addresses changes. Then IP Address Menu is what you need. IP Address Menu allows you to display your current IP address (and other information) in the menu bar and to notify you of changes by email or FTP. It displays an icon or your current IP address in the right side of the menu bar. It displays your user name, your computer name, the IP address, the subnet mask and the MAC address of each of your network interface in the menus.
It can display your external IP address (when connected to the Internet through a router). You can copy them to the clipboard by selecting them. It can automatically send an email or upload a file through FTP with all this information and the new IP address when it detects that one of your IP addresses has changed. This can be useful for example if you want to be notified when your remote Mac has changed of IP address because of an internet reconnection. You can configure the subject and the body of the emails sent. You can configure the name and the content of the file uploaded through FTP. It doesn't need any installation which makes it very easy to use. It is available in Danish, Dutch, English, French, German, Hungarian, Italian, Latvian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Traditional Chinese and many other languages.
What is new in this release:
- A Portuguese localization has been released.
- Thank you to Jose Dias for his translation from English to Portuguese.
What is new in version 8.0:
- A full recompilation has been made to be compatible with Mountain Lion, Mavericks and Yosemite.
- Our website address is now "www.alphaomega-software.com".
- The About window can now be closed faster just by clicking on it.
- The "How to intall it?" paragraph of the documentation has been updated to explain how to install and launch the Application in particular under Mac OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion, 10.9 Mavericks and 10.10 Yosemite:
Under Mac OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion, 10.9 Mavericks and 10.10 Yosemite, if you're launching the Application for the first time, maybe Mac OS X's GateKeeper (which you can configure in the "System Preferences") will refuse to launch it because you've not downloaded it from the Mac App Store (but from our website). In this case, instead of double-clicking on it, all you have to do is to right-click on the Application's icon, and then select the "Open" menu. A message will appear in which you'll be able to confirm that you want to launch the Application (even if it was not downloaded from the Mac App Store from an Identified Developper).
NB: We're not distributing our Applications through the Mac App Store, because Apple's fees policy on the Mac App Store is not financially respectful of developers and small and medium companies.
What is new in version 7.2:
- A problem when saving the preferences at shutdown has been corrected, because of Mac OS X's non-safe way of quitting the applications at shutdown.
- A problem when checking for an available update has been corrected.
