Wait, aren't apps from the Mac App Store supposed to be updated there?
Yes. Although in this case, Apple has told us that Temperature Gauge 4.1 is the last version we're allowed to release on the Mac App Store.

Why aren't new verisons allowed on the Mac App Store?
Temperature Gauge accesses some low level hardware to get temperature and fan information through a publically available IOKit interface. This is no longer allowed on the Mac App Store, which is why new versions will not be approved.

What do I do with the old version?
Once you've run Temperature Gauge 4.7.3, you can safely move the old version to the trash, or you can just leave it in the Applications folder along with the new version.

I just bought Temperature Gauge. Will it still be supported?
Absolutely. We love our customers, which is why we've come up with this unique solution that allows us to distribute all future updates outside the Mac App Store.

I just bought Temperature Gauge and I'd like to upgrade to the Pro version. How much is it?
There is a special offer in TG 4.7.3 for customers who would like to upgrade to the Pro version. Just click the status icon (in the menubar) and choose "Upgrade Now (with discount)". This will open a special link to the Paddle store with the coupon pre applied.

How will I get future updates?
Once you download this verison, it can automatically update itself using the Sparkle framework.
