Dejal Simon 4.1 Multilingual | MacOSX | 14.7 MB
Dejal Simon is the essential site monitoring tool for Mac OS X. It checks servers for changes or failures, and notifies you via email, sound, speech, Twitter, or other means. You can use it to track updated sites, and to alert you when an important server goes down or recovers. It is a native Mac OS X application with an intuitive and attractive interface.
Simon is very versatile. It can be used to monitor your own website and servers, track posts and new comments on your or friends' blogs, check for web mail, get notifications of updates to favorite news and entertainment websites, keep an eye on auctions, and many other uses.

Redesigned Web feature
* The Web (HTTP) editor has been significantly redesigned, to use a list of pages including Parameters, Headers, Cookies and Other. Clicking on one shows the corresponding page.
* The Method pop-up menu is now on the Parameters page, since it indicates how the parameters are sent.
* The Username and Password fields are now on the Other page; they are only useful if you connect to a server that has an authentication challenge (as displayed in a web browser via a sheet; not the same as a in-page form-based login).
* Both the test and notifier editions of the Web feature received these changes.
* Updated the web helper to 64-bit.
Web feature support for custom headers
* The new Headers list enables you to add custom headers to send with the request, e.g. Accept, User-Agent, etc.
* Note that sending a request via Post will set the Content-Type and Content-Length headers, overriding any you may add.
* Also for both tests and notifiers.
* Now does Post requests via the more compact application/x-www-form-urlencoded content type, instead of multipart/form-data.
Support for dynamic web content
Various improvements and fixes
* If the When pop-up menu for a test filter is changed to None, the filter plugin controls are now removed, as expected.
* Changed the (-) button to set the When pop-up menu to None for the last filter or notifier in the test.
* Fixed an issue where the Preview source wouldn't finish loading if the Preview is displayed on launch of the app.
* When adding a new test with the Preview displayed, now displays a message saying that there's no location, instead of making the test a failure immediately.
* Changed the display of status icons in the Tests list to support the Use simple status icons preference option (that uses just green & red instead of fading colors over time).
* Moved the Delete menu item from the File menu to the Edit menu, to match the placement in most other apps.
* Fixed enabling and disabling of menu and toolbar items depending on the selected list items.
* Fixed a very vexing code signing issue with the Growl framework.
* Updated a few pages in the help book.
Added a crash reporter
* Simon now uses the third-party Fabric Crashlytics framework to automatically capture crash reports. Previously it would attempt to ignore crashes, so it might crash a little more than before, but hopefully not. Automatically aggregating crash reports will enable faster fixing any that occur.
* If a crash occurs, Simon will now display an assistant window on next launch to ask for information about the crash, which may help trace the cause. There are also optional fields for your name and email address, in case there are any questions.
* Added Chinese localization, thanks to WeiOSX. Anyone familiar with Chinese, please provide feedback on this work (any issues or improvements).
* Removed Japanese localization, as it has not been updated for a while. If anyone experienced with Japanese localization would like to take over this, please get in touch.
* Updated the German and French localizations in some of the plugins (where they hadn't been used before).
* Integrated a German translation into the help book.
