Do not install El Capitan DP2 if your productivity depends on SmoothMouse. SM won’t work on it.
Apple has suddenly removed the API for pointer movement that SmoothMouse (as well as Wacom driver) relies on. This is also the reason why Wacom driver does not work anymore in El Capitan.
SmoothMouse had used the officially recommended API in the past, before version 1.0.5. Switching to a less supported API solved a lot of problems for our users.
We’re trying to reach the OS X dev team. Stay tuned.

Oftentimes when I wake up my MBP from sleep mode or reconnect the Thunderbolt hub, Apogee Duet stops responding to keyboard sound volume controls. When it happens, I can still change Duet’s volume from Maestro or Audio MIDI Setup.app, just not using the keyboard controls or OS X system volume slider.
So I took time to measure pointer lag under OS X Yosemite with my point-and-shoot camera Nikon J1, which captures 1193 frames per second in slow-motion mode. Continue reading
I’m getting a lot of emails with similar questions.
Does the mouse still lag in Yosemite?
Is SmoothMouse compatible with Yosemite?
Is SmoothMouse dead?
The development had been completely paused for several months. The good news is—today we resumed work on the next major version with lots of new and unique features. Stay tuned.

By the way, we’re still looking for a C++ programmer who could help write mouse acceleration functions. Interested? Even if in doubt, please don’t hesitate to email me.
Does Apple Mini DisplayPort to Dual Link DVI adapter introduce any lag? The answer is, probably not. At least I did not notice any difference when carrying out the experiment with my 1193 fps camera and Apple Cinema Display 30″.
Goal: add a network printer via Remote Desktop’s command-line to numerous Macs. Continue reading
