OptusQuota – V1.2.0

6 07 2008

Since Optus changed their broadband plans a couple of months ago to include uploads in the quota, the OptusQuota gadget has given dodgy information. Unfortunately Optus decided in their ultimate wisdom not to include data about the uploads in the data feed this and many other quota showing software uses.

Anyway, in the last few weeks Optus changed the feed to include the so called ‘Fusion’ data.  I have now finally had a chance to update the gadget to include functionality for the Fusion plans.

This release contains the following changes:

Full support for Fusion plans including:

  • Uploads are added to the total usage
  • Display of both MB and % on the gadget
  • Change the flyout for Fusion users to only display relevant Fusion information

In addition, the following changes have been made:

  • Checks every 15 minutes now, instead of 30
  • Timeout handling has been improved
  • Better offline network handling / detection
  • Improved update functionality

As always, the gadget is available from the Live Gallery, or existing users keep an eye out for a update message in the flyout.

Finally, the gadget now includes a Donation button on the settings page. I don’t get paid to write gadgets, I already have a very demanding job and loving family to sink my time into. If you use the gadget and like it, please consider donating.
