Leopard is supported

Power Manager now fully supports Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard). It has been a long weekend of testing. Unusually Apple did not pre-release the final build of Mac OS X 10.5 to developers. The decision means that Mac software developers are currently rushing to buy, install, and make sure their software works with the final release of Mac OS X 10.5.

Thankfully Power Manager required few changes to work with Mac OS X 10.5, and our work tracking the developer preview releases paid off.
