Added to VirtualBox Pro is status checking. When you login to the host your virtual machines are displayed with on/off information. In the onCreate a thread is launched that scans the server for machine status; it then updates the UI thread accordingly. I’ve also added header icons to replace the default one, and a new menu item has been added. The new menu item, in the free version, will not change. It currently dispalys information regarding upcoming features. In the Pro version the features will be implemented.
The Pro version will soon have the ability to login to individual machines, hosts or virtual machines, and scan for running processes. It will display the status of the running process and give the ability to start, stop, or reset it. Theoretically the list can be the entire contents of ps aux, but at first I will probably restrict it to Apache, Mysql, Sendmail, and Dovecot. The user can start, stop, and reset the processes the same way virtual machines are controlled in the current application. I should be done with the new features within a week or so.
Downloads look promising. In the first week there were about 250 downloads. I think this should grow being that first week downloads is always random. Users searching for random keywords to see what apps exist. As a reputation builds downloads should also be driven by word of mouth and hopefully a listing in the tops apps. In time, we’ll see. The paid version is off to a slow start, but as the free version grows in popularity I expect sales to pick up given the powerful features only available in the Pro version.
