Beta4 is out. It adds some very minor updates, including battery/CPU temperatures and current CPU frequency. Regrettably the Nexus One does not seem to provide CPU temperature data. The G1 and Droid do.
I never updated this thread for beta3. Beta3 grouped applications into categories, i.e., "Active" (actually running) apps, "Inactive" apps that have only been preloaded into memory and are not using ANY CPU/battery resources, and internal system applications. It additionally adds a very simple "End All" widget and the beginnings of in-app Help documentation. Be sure to read the "Help" item labeled "Task Management".
There are still a few "key" features to come. Again I'd like to stress that this application's approach to "task killing" is not / will not be to mindless kill all running processes at intervals. That strategy only works when you have battery-eating apps on your phone. There's an obvious, superior solution to this problem, and I'm working toward SystemPanel being able to provide you with all the information you need to solve it.
