St. Clair Software today releases Jettison 1.1, an update to their purpose-built application for Mac OSX. Jettison automatically ejects external drives before your Mac goes to sleep. It eliminates the hassle of manually ejecting Time Machine backup drives, network server volumes and flash drives before you put your MacBook to sleep. Just close the lid and Jettison does it for you. Version 1.1 includes a compatibility fix for Lion and adds the option to run without Jettison's icon in the menubar.
Blacksburg, Virginia - St. Clair Software today is happy to announce the release of Jettison 1.1 for Mac OS X. This update adds the option to run Jettison without its menu in your menubar. It also works around a bug in Mac OS 10.7 Lion.
Jettison is a small, purpose-built application that automatically ejects external disk drives from your Mac before you put it to sleep. Are you ready to close your MacBook and leave your desk? Jettison eliminates the hassle of manually ejecting Time Machine backup drives, network server volumes and flash drives before you put your MacBook to sleep - just close the lid and Jettison does it for you! Time Machine will be stopped and other data safely written to the drives before they're ejected.
Jettison 1.1 now lets you run without its menu in the menubar (you can still get to its menu when you want it by double-clicking on the Jettison application again). Version 1.1 also works around a bug in Mac OS 10.7 that resulted in Jettison's notification sounds playing after the Mac woke back up from sleep, rather than immediately before it went to sleep.
* Mac OS X 10.6 or 10.7 (Lion)
