Procman 0.8 released

Author: JT Smith

Version 0.8 of procman, a process viewer and system monitor is now available. The latest version adds new configuration and display options, and a Turkish language translation.

What is procman:
Procman is a process viewer/system monitor. Some of its features are:
* icons for processes
* ability to hide processes that are of no interest
* tree view for process dependencies
* ability to not show threads - could cut down on the "mozilla uses 220 
MB
of memory" questions ;)
* nice easy to use interface - I hope, let me know if you think 
otherwise.

Dependencies:
Procman depends on libgtop version 1.0.6 or greater, and gal version
0.8.99.something and higher. Gal version 0.9.1 is suggested and 
packages are
available at ftp.ximian.com in the pub/ximian-gnome/ directory. Or you 
can
use Red-Carpet to get Gal.

Availablity:
The home-page for procman is here:
http://www.personal.psu.edu/kfv101/procman
Binaries for RedHat 7.x and Debian Woody are available and RedHat 6.x
packages are in the making.


New in 0.8:
* dialog to edit the hidden process list
* put cpu/mem/swap meters on faster timeout for better display
* preferences dialog
* new config option to not show icons. Speeds up load time a lot
* new config option to show threads
* Turkish translation
